The SSC Exams 2021 have been cancelled due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.
Gaikwad had announced on Twitter that the current situation is not favourable for conducting the Maharashtra SSC and HSC Board exams 2021. The Maharashtra Board had postponed the HSC exams.
Varsha Gaikwad’s tweet read, “Furthering our commitment of developing fair & objective criteria for assessment of class 10 students, we had a meeting with@eiindia that has proven experience in providing assessment solutions. The meeting was constructive.”
Earlier, Gaikwad said, “The criterion on the basis of which results will be declared for class 10th & date of result declaration will soon be announced. The School Education Dept is committed to devising a “fair and accurate” assessment criterion.”
The Maharashtra board is likely to announce the fair and objective criteria for promoting SSC students soon. CBSE, ICSE and other state boards have also cancelled Class 10 board exams 2021. They are also working on the evaluation criteria to analyse student’s performance for promoting them to the next class. They may assess and promote the students on the basis of internal assessment, practical exam and project work. However, the picture would be clear only when the boards announce their respective evaluation criteria.
