Attention all Maharashtra students in Classes 10 and 12! Get ready for a slight change in your upcoming board exams. The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has decided to remove the 10-minute extra reading time you normally get before starting your papers.

Maharashtra Board Exam 2024 Timings Change Classes 10 & 12

This means you'll now have 3 hours and 10 minutes to answer all the questions instead of the usual 3 hours and 20 minutes. Why the change? Well, the Board wants to make sure nobody leaks the question papers anymore! Some sneaky folks used the reading time in past years to peek at the questions and share them with others. Not fair, right?

So, Class 12 exams will still start on February 21st, and Class 10 exams will begin on March 1st, 2024. Just remember, you'll jump straight into answering after getting the papers; no pausing is allowed!

Here's a quick reminder of the new timings:

  • Class 12 (HSC): February 21st to March 14th (3 hours and 10 minutes per paper)

  • Class 10 (SSC): March 1st to March 22nd (3 hours and 10 minutes per paper)

Don't worry, this change won't make the exams any harder. It's just about keeping things fair and square for everyone. So, focus on your studies, practice reading questions quickly, and remember – you've got this!
