State Board gives students second shot at improving marks, in practicals too
Also, they can henceforth appear for the practical examinations, too, to improve overall tally. So far, students were allowed one shot at improving their Board results through the Class Improvement Scheme (CIS).
MSBSHSE chairperson Sarjerao Jadhav said changes in the CIS would come into effect from the next Board exam in March/April.
ďStudents appearing for CIS used to have little time for improving their score. This was against the basic purpose of the scheme, so we decided to give students another chance,Ē he told Newsline on Friday.
Jadhav said there were more takers for CIS from science stream of Class XII as students needed to improve scores for admission to professional courses like engineering and medicine. Students appearing for the board examination with all compulsory subjects are entitled to CIS, as per which they can appear for the consecutive Board exam.
Introduced in 2008, the origin of CIS was the belief that a studentís performance cannot be evaluated by way of a mere few hours of exam at the end of the academic year.
On an average, 2,200 students of Class XII opt for CIS every year. The number for CIS among Class X students is relatively fewer and annually about 100 students opt for it, MSBSHSE officials said.
