Govt to refund part of HSC form fill up fees
The government will reimburse part of form fill up fees collected from Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalents exam candidates.

Instead, candidates would be evaluated based on their results in Junior School Certificate (JSC), Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent tests.

“We will reach students with money and none will need to contact us for the refund,” he said.
