Pune: Most city schools purposely fail students of Std IX in order to achieve 100 per cent result in SSC. However, in a welcome move, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) in a recent notification, directed all schools to conduct a re-examination for students of Std IX who have failed in the regular final examination, in June itself.

The decision was made to save one year of the students from getting wasted. 

Pune: Most city schools purposely fail students of Std IX in order to achieve 100 per cent result in SSC. However, in a welcome move, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) in a recent notification, directed all schools to conduct a re-examination for students of Std IX who have failed in the regular final examination, in June itself.

The decision was made to save one year of the students from getting wasted. 

The Education Department released a Government Resolution (GR) for the same last year and this is the first time that an early re-exam is being conducted for students of Std IX.

Last year, the Education Department started conducting early re-exams for students failing in SSC to help them appear for Std XI in the same year itself.

If the students pass in the re-examination, they will be allowed to be admitted to Std X. Also, the students will have to take re-examination only in the subjects they have failed. The evaluation pattern for the re-exam would be same as that of the regular exam. Also, students with more than 80 per cent disability and chronically ill students will be given question paper based on basic concepts.

“The exams are to be conducted by the schools by the end of June. The date of re-exam has to be declared by the schools at the time of the results of Std IX. The exam is an attempt by the department to save one year of the failed student,” Gangadhar Mhamane, Director, MSBSHSE said.
