Relief for FYJC students- Eligibility for Grace marks extended to next year

There seems to be some relief for students as the eligibility criteria for Grace marks have been extended to next year.

Maharashtra Govt. had earlier acknowledged and made mandatory that if a student is to become eligible for grace marks, they had to score 25% marks minimum in mathematics and science theory papers but now this has been advanced by a year as many students have failed in the schools and colleges. So because of huge amount of failures this year, there is now no eligibility for getting grace marks. This was quoted by Sarjerao Jadhav, chairman of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education.

As big as 55% FYJC ( ) students of Bhavan's Hazarimal Somani College of Arts and Science failed, the college had to promote 46% of them, getting 30 grace marks, 10 for each one of the subjects. So the Maharashtra Govt. had to defer the policy of grace marks eligibility for Class XI students.

As most as 140 Science stream students of RD National College, Bandra, have not passed the mathematics exam out of the 796 FYJC students. The students got a very low score in their internal assessment exams. Some the parents complained and asked for re verification.
