Maharashtra HSC Board

Established way back in 1965, today the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education is one of the most popular state boards in the country.

A walk down the lane of history

Originally established as the Maharashtra State Education Board in the year 1966, it was later changed by Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education. With its headquarters in Pune, as of now, it has a very high enrollment rate, ranking second only after the CBSE.

Setting a strong foundation

One factor that sets the Maharashtra HSC Board above all other state boards is the fact that it indulges in frequent updating of curriculum across grades. The holistic learning approach that is introduced by the board ensures that the student learns more than mere rote learning. That is why the rules set out by the board are never tampered with and there is strict adherence to rules and regulations.

Growing through the years

The board is pretty prompt with matters pertaining to conduction of exams and declaration of results. Exams are conducted twice every year in the months of March and October. The results for the same are declared in the months of June and January. It is interesting to note that very few students opt for reevaluation of papers in the Maharashtra HSC Board. Among those who do, marks are usually not altered beyond plus or minus 5 marks, thereby proving the credibility of the unbiased marking scheme of the board.

The building blocks

The Maharashtra HSC Board comprises of eight divisional boards which come together to form the state board. With the primary duty of deciding which school or college will conduct the final exams, all such divisional boards work hand in hand to ensure smooth and flawless exams for the 1,400, Higher Secondary Certificate ( HSC ) exams every year. Located in Amravati, Aurangabad, Kolhapur, Konkan, Latur, Mumbai, Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune, the nine divisional boards decide whom to appoint as the paper setter or translator. The board has English and Marathi as the official languages and conducts examinations in both the medium.  It also decides upon who will have custody of all the question papers and other confidential documents and who will transport and same. The careful decision of who will hold the coveted designation of checking the papers will also be decided upon by the divisional board.
