The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has something to great to offer for the upcoming class 10 board candidates. Well, as per media reports, the state board is planning to scrap the different set pattern for the question papers of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations. Yes, from 2019, this practise will be discontinued, and all the students in a classroom will get one set of questions to answer in the board examination. MSBSHSE will conduct the class 10 board exams from March 1 till March 22, 2019. MSBSHSE Board Exam 2019 Timetable Released; Check Class 10 & 12 Maharashtra Board Schedule Online. 

The exam pattern of providing students with a different set of papers for all subject in a classroom was introduced a few years ago by MSBSHSE to prevent copying in the exam hall. In one classroom, the SSC candidates were given four sets of question papers for mathematics, second and third languages. The difficulty level of all the sets was pretty same. This process helped the teachers to stop the students copying the answers from each other. However, from 2019, the practise will not be followed anymore. MSBSHSE SSC Aptitude Test: From This Year Class 10 Students to Take Aptitude Test on Smartphone Instead of Computer. 

The reason being in a circular as quoted by TOI, “In the new syllabus, the papers will be based on a student's understanding of the topic, personal views and interaction in a classroom. Answers are not dependent on the basis of rote learning the content in textbooks. Hence, there is no scope for students to copy from each other.” But it must be noted that the old practise will continue for MSBSHSE class 12 students.

The Maharashtra State Board has released the board exam 2019 timetable. Class 10 students will appear for the revised syllabus. The HSC board examination, on the other hand, is scheduled to be conducted from February 21 and end on March 20. The detailed date sheet is available on the board’s website and at the respective affiliated schools.
