Maharashtra SSC, HSC Exam 2021 Update: The Maharashtra Education Department and the State Board have been considering postponing the Maharashtra SSC Exam 2021 for Class 10 students and Maharashtra HSC Exam 2021 for Class 12 students due to the recent increase in COVDI-19 cases in the state, according to the latest update. While officials from the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) and the Education Department have not commented on this, media reports from Nagpur have suggested that such a plan is being considered in view of the worsening COVID-19 situation across the state. However, a final decision on the MSBSHSE 10th and 12th Exams 2021 deferment may be taken soon.

After that, we'll have to get the chief minister's office's approval for the final proposal.
