Maharashtra: Decision on board exams yet to be taken

April 12, 2021

After a tweet went viral stating the Maharashtra state board exams have been cancelled, education minister Varsha Gaikwad said that it is not an official one.

In an official statement, Gaikwad said, “Beware! I’ve got to know that some morphed images of my twitter handle are being circulated to spread misinformation about exams. Only trust information from official handles and platforms. Please do not fall for any kind of misinformation.”

In an earlier statement, Gaikwad had said, “I have a clear idea that some parents and students are uneasy about the board exams in view of the growing contagion of coronavirus. Protecting the health of students is our first responsibility. We are reviewing the situation. A decision in this regard will be taken in the next few days after discussions with the Chief Minister.”

Further, the Maharashtra government has decided to promote all students of classes 1 to 8 under the Maharashtra State Board without examinations. Education minister Varsha Gaikwad said that a decision on Classes 9 and 11 examinations will be conveyed soon.

The decision was taken as Covid-19 cases continued to rise in the state. Gaikwad had tweeted, “Announcement: In view of the ongoing situation due to #Covid 19, all state board students across Maharashtra state from Class 1st to Class 8th will be promoted to the next class without any examinations. A decision regarding students of class 9th and 11th will soon be taken.”
