With state board exams for Class X and XII cancelled, marks for students wishing to secure admission to higher classes on sports quota will be calculated on the basis of their performance in previous years.

While marks for Class X will be based on performance assessment of classes VIII and IX, students of Class XII will have to rely on their performance in sports in Class XI for admission to higher classes, according to the criteria released by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE).
