Even as schools across India are celebrating their Class 10 Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) results, institutes in Mumbai are unable to join in them.

Four hours after the results were announced today, Mumbai students still do not know how much they have scored in different subjects. Schools in Maharashtra, including those in Mumbai, Pune and Nagpur, have not received each student’s marks. Instead, the board has sent them grades.

On Friday, CBSE had announced that it would send affiliated schools grades as well as marks after the online results were declared.

While online results were announced by 1 pm, Mumbai schools have not yet received an email. On the other hand, schools in Thane and Navi Mumbai received comprehensive results on time.

This is the first time schools have faced such a problem, said principals. “We have been waiting for the results since morning,” said Malika Subramaniam, principal, Navy Children School, Colaba. As many as 40 of the school’s 174 students secured a 10 CGPA. “So far, we can only view the grades of students, but are unable to derive percentages.”

Unlike their counterparts in Navi Mumbai and Thane, Mumbai schools are unable to announce their high scorers and celebrate on a large scale. “We know our results are good because the number of students scoring 10 CGPA has increased, but we still don’t know who is the school topper,” said Avnita Bir, principal, RN Podar School, Santacruz. Of 249 students, 92 received 10 CGPAs.

Even students are confused. They need to know how much they have scored so they can participate in Class 11 admissions to Maharashtra state board colleges. “My friends in other schools found out their percentages. But, I only know my grades so I don’t know whether to celebrate or not,” said Sushen Nare, student of Rajhans Vidyalaya, Andheri.

Meanwhile, students in Navi Mumbai and Thane are over the moon about their high scores. “I wasn’t expecting to score 99.4%. I didn’t do anything extraordinary to prepare for the exams. I only read my textbooks and kept referring to my notes. I also rested every now and then,” said Aayush Shah, Sheth Karamshi Kanji English School, Mulund.

Neer Savla from Sheth Karamshi Kanji English School, Mulund, scored 99.2%. “I took small breaks and played outdoor games to unwind. I want to be a paediatrician,” she said.
