The Maharashtra Boards justification for adopting the Best-5 policy was that it is not lenient in giving marks,like CBSE and ICSE boards. My question is,Why is it not adopting the same pattern as CBSE and ICSE boards? Why use a bypass when the main route is open? Many outstanding students shockingly got marks in 60s or 70s in some of the papers which really brought remarkable frustration in them. In some cases,it also happened that students,who scored almost full marks in their favourite subjects since childhood and have also performed well in SSC exam,got about 7-8 marks less which could lower the percentage by two points.
So,before preparing new marksheets,the SSC board should revaluate all papers,otherwise this years school final results will really take a bad turn in the students lives. If it fails to do so,the board can adopt some alternative measures to ensure the admission of the students from other boards.
