The results of the secondary school certificate (SSC) examination for 2015-16 will be declared at 1pm on Monday, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education announced, putting an end to rumours on the tentative dates doing the rounds of social media sites.
More than 17.27 lakh students from across the state, including 3.74 lakh from the Mumbai division, took the exam this year.
Students will be able to access the results at www.mahresult.nic.in. The mark sheets will be distributed in schools on June 15. 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, the dates for the exams are yet to be announced.
