In a major reprieve for more than 1,000 class XII students of science stream from Aurangabad division of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE), the state government has decided to allow them to appear for the forthcoming board examination despite not having minimum 40 per cent marks in science in class X.
The MSBSHSE had recently forwarded a proposal to the government to this effect after it emerged that these students were already given admission by junior colleges in violation of the rule.
"The government has decided to allow students to sit for the examination, while at the same time action has been sought against the colleges concerned. This relaxation offered is valid for this year only. We will be issuing show-cause notice to these colleges shortly," MSBSHSE chairman Sarjerao Jadhav told The Indian Express.
