The pass percentage for first-time candidates in SSC exam this year increased by 1.79% to 91.90% in Mumbai division, but a drop of 1.90% was recorded across the state.
Of the 1,609,406 students that took the exam in the state, 1,434,143 students — 671,853 girls and 762,290 boys — passed from nine divisions.
Konkan division came in first with 96.56% success rate, while Latur division had the worst result at 81.54%. The results are based on the best-of-five subject policy.
Talking to HT, one of the high scorers, Sharan Shetty (15) from St Joseph’s High School in Vikhroli, said, “Since I had to make time for studies and sports everyday, I planned my day well to make sure that I don’t miss out on anything...Now I want to concentrate on preparation for MH-CET exams so that I can get through an institute of my choice to pursue engineering.” Sharan scored 98.20% (including 15 marks for sports).
Another high scorer, Chirag Bangera (16) from Oxford Public School in Kandivli, said, “I used to practice previous year’s question papers regularly and was very confident about scoring above 97%. The results have made me really happy as my hard work has paid off. I have already enrolled for integrated coaching for classes 11 and 12 and hope to crack the JEE examinations as well.”
Chirag too has scored 98.20% (including 15 marks for sports).
The original mark sheets will be distributed in schools on June 15 at 3pm. This year, students will be able to apply for verification of marks immediately after the results, from June 7 to June 27. Students can also get a photocopy of the answer sheets at a minimum fee and then submit it for re-evaluation.
The SSC exams this year offered more concessions to students, with extra facilities for special students and multiple sections for science. To reduce the examination stress, the board split science subject into two sections, so it becomes easy for students to revise. Students with special needs were allowed to use adult writers, if they were unable to find writers younger to them. Students were also given 10 minutes extra to read the question paper before they start writing.
The re-exams will be conducted in July, for which students will have to register online. The dates for the exams are yet to be announced.
