The proposal tabled by the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education on the minimum pass percentage in theory exams for SSC and HSC has been rejected by the state government. The proposal was tabled last year in October.

With this, the rule of students scoring an aggregate of 35 out of 100 in both practicals or orals and written exam to pass will continue.

For the sciences, the bar was set at 14 marks. All board papers carry 80 marks in the written examination, except for physics, chemistry and biology, which carry 70 marks for the written paper and 30 marks for practicals.
