To rethink the assessment pattern for classes IX to XII in schools and junior colleges, the state school education and sports department on Tuesday issued a government resolution (GR) announcing the formation of a committee that will study evaluation norms of different boards. The committee is required to submit the report within 10 days.

After the department scrapped internal assessments for Class X board (SSC) examinations this year, the overall pass percentage of students had fallen by over 12 per cent. This further created a disparity in the percentages between students of SSC and others boards such as ICSE and CBSE.

Following this, the state had announced an increase of 5 to 8 per cent seats in some city colleges for this academic year to make seats available for SSC students.

School Education Minister Ashish Shelar will be the president of the committee.
