Maharashtra SSC Internal Rating Reduced To 20Marks

Maharashtra SSC Internal Marks Reduced
The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education has proposed to reduce the internal assessment marks of SSC (Secondary School Certificate) i.e. class 10 examination to 20 marks from next academic year.

 

"This change in internal marks shall be applicable for science and mathematics subjects", board chairman Sarjerao Jadhav said.

"As per the revised syllabus, the internal assessment for class 9 is of 20 marks. It will have to be continued for class 10 as well. The proposal is not yet cleared by the government but the chances are that it will get the positive nod", he added.

He further explained the procedure in detail- at present, the mathematics subject has 150 marks, including 30 marks for internal assessment. It will be reduced to 100 marks where 40 marks each for the algebra and geometry written examinations and 20 marks for internal assessment.

And students would have two-and-a-half-hours for the written exams of 80 marks. At present for science subject theory holds 60 marks and internal assessment is for 40 marks. But, from the next academic year i.e. 2013-14, the internal assessment marks will be reduced to 20 marks and the theory exam will be of 80 marks.

However, the state government has decided to revise the marks weightage to bring parity with the CBSE examination pattern. This will also help the government to resolve few issues like the 'best 5 calculations', which had before caused disputation.
