Mumbai: The Maharashtra State Board on Wednesday restored the 10 minutes question paper reading time for the forthcoming SSC and HSC exams.
The board had on February 10 done away with the question paper reading time to discourage portions of the question paper from getting circulated on social media platforms. Last year, the board had come across several instances of students circulating portions of question papers on WhatsApp groups on getting the paper for reading purposes.
After several requests by students and parents, the board has decided to restore the reading time. However, students will get the question paper when the exam begins at 11 am or 3 pm. They can read the paper for 10 minutes and start writing thereafter. The exam will end 10 minutes after the allotted time. For instance, if a paper ends at 2 pm, it will now end at 2.10 pm.
Students will have to be in their exam halls 30 minutes before the exam. No delay will be allowed. In case of unavoidable circumstances, a student can approach his/her nearest examination centre and write the paper.
Reading question papers was introduced by the board in 2015 to help students decide on which questions they need to attempt first. HSC exams begin on February 21 and SSC exams start on March 2.
Boards like CBSE and CISCE have allotted 15 minutes for students to read their question papers.
