MSCE drops the word ‘fail’ from marksheets, allows non-state board students to appear for scholarship exams
The minimum score for getting the scholarships has been raised to 40% from 35%.
Students of Class 5 and Class 8 who take the Maharashtra school scholarship exams will now be labelled as ‘eligible’ or ‘ineligible’ for the scholarships instead of ‘passed’ or ‘failed’. The Maharashtra State Council of Examinations (MSCE) has come up with the terminology change to increase motivation among students.
The minimum score for getting the scholarships has been raised to 40% from 35%. As per the revised age limits, the pre-upper primary exam (Class 5) candidates should not be older than 11 years (as of June 1) while the age limit for pre-higher secondary exam (Class 8) candidates is 14 years.
The first exam with the revised syllabus will be conducted in 2017withapplication based and multiple choice questions. The new syllabus and paper pattern can be viewed here.
