Mumbai division which also includes Thane, Raigad and Palghar has recorded a pass percentage of 77.04% as opposed to 90.41% last year (13.36% dip).

From the Mumbai divisional board, which also includes Thane, Raigad and Palghar, close to 4 lakh students had registered for the Class 10 examinations. The number of fresh candidates who registered for the exam from Mumbai divisional board saw an increase of 12.77% - jumping from 3,39,899 in 2018 to 3,83,320 in 2019.
This is the first time when the exams were held after the state board revised the syllabus and scrapped orals for languages and social sciences. “With the new syllabus into effect, students were already anxious. Then, the education department decided to scrap orals which added to the overall pressure as they had to write a 100 mark exam,” said Sheela Pandit, a teacher from a suburban school ahead of the exams. The number of repeater candidates went down from 42,855 in 2018 to 16,307 in 2019 due to the introduction of the new syllabus. “With the introduction of new syllabus most repeaters either write the supplementary exams in July or apply for class improvement thus bringing down the numbers,” said Krishnakumar Patil, chairperson, Mumbai divisional board.
