Tthe Maharashtra State Board for Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has announced a change in their September-October 2014 board exam session.
The state board secretary announced that the HSC paper of English Literature, which was originally supposed to be held on October 15, 2014 will now be held on October 20, 2014 instead.
The change has come in to effect to avoid a clash with the state elections, scheduled for October 15, 2014.
A senior state board representative was quoted as saying, “None of the SSC examinations were getting affected by the election dates, so we only changed the exam date of one subject from HSC. We had anyway left some buffer days in anticipation of the elections so making changes to the time-table was not difficult.”
