MSBSHSE: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) will give marks instead of grades to the students who appeared for the Class 10 board examinations in Maharashtra so that they can take admission in Class 11 at schools affiliated under the Maharashtra State Secondary and High Secondary Education Board (MSBSHSE).
The move comes after the Maharashtra government’s decision that they’ll give admission to students keeping their Class 10 marks as the criteria. To counsel students, the board has decided to set up guidance centres at nine affiliated schools across the state. These centres will help students from other states to fill forms for admission.
