Maharashtra HSC Exam 2021: In line with the expectation and the most likely decision as hinted by the State Education Ministry, Maharashtra on Thursday official announced the cancellation of HSC or 12th higher secondary exam for the year 2021.

The SDMA gave the final approval to the proposal submitted by the state school education department on Wednesday saying safety and health of the students are of prime importance for the government.

The Maharashtra government had earlier cancelled the Class 10 exam for the year 2021.

“The state board’s assessment policy for Class XII students and the date of the declaring results will be announced soon. We are committed to evaluating students accurately,” she told reporters.
