The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secon-dary Education (MSBSHSE) released a statement saying that supplementary exams for students who failed to clear the HSC exams conducted in March 2016 would be held in July instead of September-October.
Students willing to apply for the Class Improvement Scheme would have a chance to appear in the exams in July and also in February-March next year. Candidates can apply online by logging onto http://www.mahahsscboard.maharashtra.gov.in. Stu-dents would then have to take a printout of the filled-up forms and pay the required fees in the prescribed format at any Bank of India branch. A copy of the paid challan has to be submitted to the divisional board concerned.
Students can fill the online forms between May 30 and June 9 and the fees can be paid from June 10-14. The forms, however, would only be available online and a late fee would be charged if the forms are filled after June 9.
The link would be active only till June 13 and students would have to pay the original amount and the late fee by the last date on June 16. Board authorities have requested students, parents and school authorities to note that no supplementary exams would be conducted for HSC in September-October from this year.
The Board had declared the HSC results on May 25, and out of 13,19,754 students who appeared, 11,42,882 students cracked the exam, and 1,76,872 had failed. However, as per an announcement by the state education minister, the marksheets this year would not mention students as failed, but say ‘passed for July supplementary exams’ to avoid loss of another academic year.
