Mumbai, March 1: The Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations conducted by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) have commenced, with over 16 lakh students from across the state gearing up to appear for the tests. This year, a notable change in protocol has been introduced, granting candidates an additional 10 minutes after the scheduled two hours of examination time instead of the customary 10-minute reading allowance at the beginning.

The move aims to give students more time to complete their papers effectively. To bolster the integrity and confidentiality of the examination process, the board has deployed assistant supervisor teams at examination centres. These teams will vigilantly monitor answer sheets, employing GPS tracking as a precautionary measure. Additionally, district-level and state-level flying squads have been mobilized to enhance security measures. SSC Exam 2024 Wishes and Images: As Maharashtra Board SSC Exam Begins Today, Send All the Best Messages and Motivational Quotes To Encourage Students To Perform Well in the Examination.
