Maharashtra Board 2021 Syllabus

There are many chapters that have been only taught for reference and not included in the syllabus and therefore the students need not go through those before the examination. The students can view the syllabus of the same from the Maharashtra Board official website.

Exam Pattern 2021

The exam pattern of Maharashtra HSC 2021 is different for all Commerce subjects namely Accountancy, Economics, Business Studies. The exam is held in offline mode, and students have to answer very short, short, long, and essay type questions. The questions are asked from the syllabus of Maharashtra HSC 2021. Students should go through the exam pattern while they are preparing for the exam as it helps them work on their time management skills. They must practice previous years’ question papers to know the Maharashtra HSC exam pattern better. 

·         Exam for each commerce subject is held for 100 marks, wherein 80 marks are allotted to theory and 20 marks to practical/oral/project.

·         Each student will have to attain 35 per cent marks in each subject to pass an exam.


For the board exam 2021, Maharashtra Board has revised the class 12 examination pattern for all subjects. Board has introduced some major changes in the design of the question paper and evaluation scheme. The list of changes introduced to the Maharashtra Board HSC exam pattern is as follows:

1. Addition of 25 per cent objective questions: According to the revised evaluation scheme, the board has decided to add 25 per cent objective type questions in the HSC exam question paper. These objective type questions will be in the form of Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs). 

2. Decrease in total marks for final assessment: Another major change introduced by the Maharashtra Board board involves reduction in total marks. From the next academic session, total marks for Class 12 students will be 600 marks instead of 650 marks.

3. Internal assessment/practical component for all subjects: The education board has introduced an internal assessment or practical exam of 20 marks for all subjects of class 12. Now the theory paper will be of 80 marks with 20 marks kept for the internal assessment. Out of these 20 marks, 5 marks will be assigned to listening skills, another 5 marks will be kept for oratory skills and the remaining 10 marks will be allocated to the subject-related activity. The same criteria will be applied in all subjects of Class 10th.

Maharashtra Board HSC Commerce preparations

1. Addition of more objective type questions comes with an additional advantage for students as they will be able to spare more time to write long and subjective type answers in their exams, hence will increase their chances of scoring better marks. To prepare for objective type questions, students must clear all their concepts and learn all definitions, formulae and important terms/facts.

While writing the exam:

·         Read the question and options carefully

·         Calculate the answer first in the mind and take out the suspected answers

·         Eliminate the options which do not match your answer

·         Work with the options which are near to the correct answer (according to you) to arrive at the correct one

2. As far as the reduction in the overall score is concerned, students need not make any different preparation arrangements for this change as it has nothing to do with their course syllabus or preparation techniques. They just need to work hard for each subject to score good marks so that they can have a decent aggregated score at the time of the final assessment. They should practice with model papers and previous year question papers to get an idea of topics that are frequently asked in exams and also know the type of questions asked over years.

3. Internal assessment aims at estimating a student’s educational progress and ability of learning. This requires students to be consistent in their performance throughout the year as the internal marks will be based on continuous evaluation instead of year-end evaluation. They should actively participate in the different activities conducted as a part of the internal assessment like test of listening and speaking skills in language subjects, conducting experiments for practical examinations, etc.

 Thus, Tie up your shoes and gear-up for the exams as not much amount of time left.
