Beginning today, March 2, the class 10 or SSC board exams will be conducted by the Maharashtra Board. The three-hour exam will be given in two shifts by the board. The first shift will start at 11:00 AM and go through 2:00 PM; the second shift will begin at 3:00 PM and run through 6:00 PM. Students are recommended to arrive in the exam room 30 minutes prior to the start time.
Students taking the SSC board exams must arrive at the exam centre with their admit cards and school identification cards. No student will be permitted to take the exam without the admit card. For the secondary school certificate exams, students will get an additional 10 minutes to thoroughly examine the question paper.
The first language paper for the Maharashtra board class 10 exams will be given in the first shift and covers Hindi, Marathi, Urdu, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Sindhi, Bengali, Gujarati, Kannada, and Punjabi. German and French are among the second or third language papers offered during the second shift. Geography will be covered in Social Sciences Paper II of the Maharashtra SSC 2023 exam.
Students won't be permitted to leave the exam room until all questions have been answered and the answer sheets have been turned in to the appropriate invigilator. The schedule indicates that the class 10 examination for the Maharashtra board in 2023 would end on March 25.
Mobile phones, earbuds, smart watches, calculators, and other devices won't be permitted in the exam room. The Maharashtra board is taking precautions to guarantee "copy-free exams" this year. In accordance with the "copy-free tests," photocopy and xerox shops have reportedly been instructed to close within a 50-meter radius of the testing locations. On all exam days, there will be more police officers stationed close to the testing locations.
The Maharashtra board reported a class 10 exam pass rate overall of 96.94% in 2022. 15.21 lakh out of the 15.68 lakh students who took the SSC exam last year and appeared in it passed.
