Maharashtra HSC board about to clash with JEE Main 2021:

  • The clash of JEE Main exam 2021 dates with those of the dates of the 12th boards of the Maharashtra board became a recent controversial topic among the students who are about to appear their JEE exams along with their boards.
  • The National Testing Agency (NTA) has scheduled JEE Mains in four sessions – February, March, April and May 2021. However, students have been complaining about the clash between Maharashtra Class 12 board exam 2021 with JEE Main 2021 exam date scheduled in April and May sessions.The JEE Main 2021 application form is still available for February session till January 23. Moreover, they can also appear in March 2021 session for which, registrations shall reopen after the declaration of JEE result for the February session, as announced by authorities.
  • A student named AchalGajanamreplied to the tweet of Maharashtra School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad to not take the board exams on the dates of JEE Main. The minister had tweeted about the release of the Class 12 Boards Timetable of Maharashtra. Therefore, the reply by the student caught an immediate media attention making it trending on twitter.
  • It should be noted that the NTA is conducting four sessions of JEE Mains instead of two to
  • In several tweets, many different students pointed out that the broad period of Maharashtra HSC Exam 2021 overlaps with JEE Mains exam to be held in April and May sessions.
  • As of now, the Maharashtra School Education Minister has only announced the examination dates for the theory / written and practical exams; however, detailed subject-wise date sheet with details about the time and dates is still awaited. In all likelihood, the Maharashtra Board i.e., MSBSHSE will soon release the Maharashtra HSC Exam Date sheet 2021 soon on its official website and provide much needed clarity to students about its clash with the JEE Main 2021 engineering entrance examination.
  • Some students even tweeted that the online classes aren’t smoothly running to which students can practically and validly attain their exams. Whereas, colleges expect to finish the subject practical and journals within a month, this is a new unfair going on with the lives of young students.
  • The request concerned all over the twitter to set the Maharashtra HSC Class 12 board according to the dates of JEE and NEET examinations.
  • It is likely to say that the JEE and NEET examinations are national competitive exams prepared according to all the states of the nation, which means the Maharashtra itself finally has to take a step aback to change the schedule as JEE and NEET are adamant to change theirs just for the sake of one sake.
  • Students appearing in the board examination in the state of Maharashtra would have to take the examination in an offline mode. Students will be required to appear in the board exams at a centre determined in their respective cities. On the contrary, JEE Mains is conducted at selected centres within a state. Therefore, many students living in rural areas will have to travel a few hours to reach the JEE Main exam centre.
  • As many students who will be appearing in Maharashtra Class 12 board examinations are also preparing for Engineering entrance exam—JEE Main 2021—the clash in exam dates would not only disturb their preparations, it would also make travelling and reaching the JEE Main exam centre difficult.
  • Even as students are relieved after the announcement of Maharashtra HSC Class 12th exam dates, those who are appearing for JEE Main 2021 are worried because of the fear that the two exams might overlap and create unnecessary pressure.
  • JEE Main is the essential entrance test for admission in first year engineering courses offered after Class 12th board exams. While JEE Main is India-based and conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA), HSC is a board-level exam conducted by respective boards.
