According to the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE), the students will be marked based on performance in internal assessments as the board exams were cancelled due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and the subsequent rise in cases.

Moreover, the students will be evaluated based on their marks in Class 9 and 10, marks of both the classes with have 50 per cent weightage. In addition, of the total marks, 50 marks will be calculated based on the performance in class 9. The remaining 50 will be divided into two – 30 marks will be for the internal assessment of class 10 and 20 marks will be for practical or homework or assignments. Furthermore, educational institutions will have to submit the result to the board by June 30 and result evaluation will begin by July 3.
