Decision on SSC, HSC Exam Fee Hike deferred
The general board of Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board ( GSHSEB ) has decided to put on hold the proposal for a 20% hike in fee for SSC and HSC students’ upcoming board examinations.
Board members decided that they would first discuss the proposal at length and then take a decision at the next general board meeting. If the board approves the 20% hike, the board will earn an additional 10 crore every year. Sources said the board hasn’t revised the examination fees for SSC and HSC students since 2006.
Meanwhile, the general board cleared the proposal for charging 100 as penalty from an examiner for a mistake of one mark while correcting an HSC science stream paper and 50 for one-mark mistake in the correction of HSC general stream and SSC papers.
