Sharan Shetty, 15, from St Joseph’s High School in Vikhroli, who scored 98.2%, including 15 marks for sports 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 and at the same time also rest well. 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.”

The Konkan division stood first with 96.56%, while Latur had the lowest result at 81.54%. The result has been declared as per the best-of-five subjects policy.

Chirag Bangera, 16, from Oxford Public School in Kandivli, who scored 98.2%, including 15 marks for sports, 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 all my hardwork has paid off. I have already enrolled for integrated coaching for class XI and XII and hope to crack the JEE examinations as well.”

Students will receive the original mark sheets on June 15, they will be distributed in their respective schools at 3pm. Students can now access the results on www.mahresult.nic.in.

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.
