The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has created and uploaded on its website a sample question bank for students of Std XII in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. 

The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has created and uploaded on its website a sample question bank for students of Std XII in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. 

The questions in the question bank are formed according to the new format of question papers for Std XII. While the syllabus for Std XI and XII was upgraded in the year 2011-12 and 2012-13 respectively, the process of upgradation of the question paper format was underway for some time.
 
These changes have been made to raise the standard of education and evaluation so that the students of State Board will be on par with the other boards. Along with the questions, model answer-keys too are available on the website.

This would also help students of schools and colleges under the State Board to fare better in the competitive examinations like JEE and NEET. 

According to the instructions received from the Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE), changes have been made in the evaluation pattern. 

The questions will give students a fair idea of what kind of questions will appear in the final examination. They will also be useful for students to practise and revise what they have studied and help them develop their reasoning power. The question bank will also help teachers to frame and ask more similar questions to their students.

While the questions for Std XI have already been made available to the students, those for Std XII have recently been uploaded by the Board on its website www.mahahsscboard.maharashtra.gov.in 

The questions have been framed by teachers from different parts of the State and have been scrutinised by subject experts. The circular given by the Board has also a disclaimer that the questions on the website are only for practice and might not appear in the board examination at all.
