After the internal assessment marks were scrapped for last year's 10th Standard SSC Board Examination, the overall pass percentage of students was reduced by 12 per cent. This indeed made it difficult for SSC students to seek admission in their desired colleges as compared to their counterparts ICSE and CBSE students.

Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray had met Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to discuss the downfall of the students' results and make necessary changes for the next curriculum year. To solve the admission issues, the state government had announced that colleges should increase 5-8 per cent of seats. 

On July 10, Maharashtra Education Minister Ashish Shelar announced that a committee will be set up to revise the evaluation norms of different boards i.e. SSC, ICSE, CBSE, IGCSE and IB and will be presided by him. Notably, the internal assessment fetched 20 marks for students and the written exam would be of 80 marks but after the new regulation was implemented, students had to appear for a 100 marks written paper which, in turn, reduced their average percentage.
