Best of Five Scheme For SSC Students

Best of Five Scheme For SSC Students
There is good news for students of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) board. The ‘best of five’ scheme that will enable SSC students to use five of their top-scoring subjects to determine their final percentage will be implemented from this academic year, the state government has announced. This means that students, who will appear for SSC examination this year, will get the benefit of this scheme. Under the scheme, students appearing for the SSC exam will have to pass in all the six subjects.

While the marks obtained by the students in all subjects will be shown in the mark sheet, the overall percentage obtained by the student will be based on the aggregate of five subjects in which the student has scored maximum marks.
The subject, in which the student has scored badly, will be dropped while counting the final percentage.
The scheme that was worked out by the State School Education Department in association with the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education aims to relieve exam-related pressure on students.
The ‘best of five’ system is already in place in the CBSE and ICSE examinations and the idea behind the plan to introduce this in the SSC board was to reduce exam pressure on students and also bring parity in the evaluation system.
Dr T A Shivare, principal of Hinduja College and chairman of Association of Non-government Colleges said that he welcomed the introduction of the scheme. “This scheme will help SSC students while seeking admission in junior college. This decision will bring about a parity between SSC and other boards,” he said.
