Post CBSE decided to cancel board exams, Varsha Gaikwad said that a decision on the Maharashtra board exams would soon be taken.

The Maharashtra government on Tuesday announced that this year’s SSC examination has been cancelled. School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad said in view of rising Covid-19 cases in the state, the decision was made in consultation with the cabinet.

“Health and safety of our students and teachers are priority,” Gaikwad said. Last week, the school education department rescheduled HSC and SSC examinations to May and June. Close to 17 lakh students appear for Class X examination in the state.

In the latest decision, however, no change was announced with regard to HSC examination, which will be conducted after May, as per the previous order.
