Varsha Gaikwad, Minister of School Education, Maharashtra on Twitter said “In view of the current status of the pandemic, projections that children are vulnerable to newer strains and the anxiety among them, the Maharashtra government had demanded that a "Non Examination Route" be considered for Class 12 students.

The minister further added, “ We'd also stressed on the need for a 'Uniform Assessment Model' across the country. I welcome the Centre's decision to cancel the CBSE board exams.”

“There is no doubt that Class 12 exams are an important milestone in a student's life, but given the current circumstances the health and mental well-being of our children should be prioritised. The decision regarding the state board's Class 12 exams will also soon be taken keeping the student's health and safety in mind,” said the minister.

Recently, in response to a petition, the Maharashtra government told the Bombay High Court that HSC exams are more important for students than SSC. One can’t compare 12th Maharashtra board exam to the SSC exams as the former holds more importance.

Earlier, the Maharashtra Board has also announced the evaluation criteria of Class 10 students. The students of Class 10 will be promoted to the next class and marks will be awarded on the basis of the internal assessment of their performance in Class 9.
