As per the sources, there is a good chance that the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education might take down the internal exams in schools at Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) levels from the next academic year onwards.

Up until this year, the board followed the marking scheme of 20-80 where the internals, either oral or practical, were constituting 20 marks and finals carried a big chunk of 80 marks. A student would be considered passed when s/he scored enough combining the result of both the exams.

“The department is planning to change the marking scheme, discussions have begun, it will be finalised in the next couple of days and we will issue a circular,” a senior official from the department quoted in the Hindustan Times.

A committee has been set up by the board which is consisting experts and the alternative marking schemes suggested by them is been looked upon by the board. The reports lay out the confusion where some support on scraping off internals entirely and some wish to introduce grading system and do away with marks in internals.

“We met recently to discuss the proposals, but I cannot comment on it until the department announces it publicly,” an official from the textbook bureau.
