Maharashtra has performed better in this year's Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exams, recording an overall pass percentage of 88.32 as compared to last year's 83.48. However, Mumbai's overall pass percentage has dipped a little, from 88.92 last year to 88.84 this year.

And in keeping with the tradition, this year too, girls in state have outshone boys with 90.55% girls passing as compared to 86.47% boys.

This year, 15,49,784 regular candidates took the exams in state and 13,68,796 of them passed. The overall pass percentage of regular candidates from nine regions is 88.32. From Maharashtra, 8,46,761 boys took the exams and 7,32,218 of them passed, while 7,03,023 girls took the exams and 6,36,578 of them passed.

In Mumbai, 3,44,338 students appeared for the exams, out of which 3,05,912 passed — a pass percentage of 88.84. In city, 78,477 scored 75% and above, 1,04,112 scored between 60% and 74%, and 95,743 scored between 45% and 59%. The number of students who scored between 34% and 44% is just 27,580.

Students can get their marksheet from schools on June 26 at 3pm. They can apply for recounting from June 26 till July 5 and for the photocopy of their answer sheets from June 17 till July 7. The Mumbai Divisional Board has started a helpline for students from Tuesday, which will be active till June 26.

This year, out of the 3,500 city schools, 801 got a 100% result and 1,417 got a 90-99.99% result. On the other hand, 105 schools from state and 45 schools from city got a 0% result.

Reacting on the 0% result of city schools, chairman of Mumbai Divisional Board, Vashi, Laxmikant Pandey said, "We will inform the deputy director of school education about these schools. Appropriate action against these schools will then be decided, which could also be de-recognition."

Board officials said SSC results this year got delayed because of the introduction of the subject ICT. The subject was 40 marks theory and 10 marks oral, which was later converted into grades.

The number of students passing in maths this year as compared to last year saw a substantial rise — 92.52% passed this year as compared to 77.47% last year. The reason behind the rise, according to board officials, is that this year it was a 100-mark exam, whereas last year it was out of 150 marks.
