Shivangi Kumari 2nd Mar, 2020
Hey Sahil,
Sorry ,but it is not possible to appear in only selective subject in your class 12 improvement examination. According to Maharashtra HSC Board 2020, candidates will have to appear in all the papers and will not be given the option of appearing for only those subjects which they have scored less. While the option to appear in selective subjects only is available in CBSE board Exams.
Yes you also have to reappear in the practical exams .

TANUJ JAIN 24th Feb, 2020

Hey Aspirant,

Here are few points regarding passing criteria for Maharashtra HSC Board:

The exam is divided into compulsory and non-compulsory subjects. The compulsory subjects include two languages and Environment Education. The non-compulsory subjects include four subjects as per the choice of the stream made by the student. Further, every subject (apart from Environment Education and Physical Education) is divided into two parts – written paper marks and practical or internal marks. From a total of one hundred marks, 80 marks are allotted for the written paper and 20 marks are given for practical or internal assessment. To pass a particular subject the student needs to score a minimum of 35 percent marks out of 100.

Hope this helped,

Thank You, All the best.
