He also clarified that Marathi will not be compulsory. "We do not want a politically-influenced decision in education. The government will take advice from educationalists on how to incorporate Marathi in the curriculum; whether it should be a 100-mark or 50-mark paper or taught without conducting an exam," he said.

Tawde also indicated that the pattern of the SSC board syllabus would be changed. "Insted of rote learning, SSC students should learn how to apply their mind. So, 50% of the syllabus should be activity oriented so that many students do not score beyond 90%," said Tawde.
