The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has announced changes in the dates of the forthcoming Class XII examination for revised syllabus of chemistry and biology for the Science stream. The move aims to give more time between the exams for students to prepare better.
Accordingly, the chemistry paper will be held on March 26 instead of the earlier announced date of February 27, the biology examination date has been postponed to March 17 from March 4.
The Class XII examination for the Science stream will start from the earlier announced date of February 21, but will now end on March 26, instead of March 25.
"The state government recently held a discussion with different stakeholders, especially teachers, over difficulties being faced by junior colleges in completing revised syllabus for some of the subjects of the Science stream. Based on it, the government has arrived at a decision to reschedule the examinations for chemistry and biology," MSBSHSE chairman Sarjerao Jadhav told Newsline on Thursday.
Jadhav clarified that there were no changes in the schedule for any other paper in any stream. Last year, more than 13 lakh students had appeared for the Class XII examination, with a major chunk of them being from the Science stream. A revised syllabus for all subjects of Class XI and the science and mathematics subjects of Class XII has come into effect from the academic year 2012-13.
Junior college principals said they were unaware about the changes in the Class XII time-table.
