The success rate of girl students is 84.9 per cent,somewhat better than boys performance which was 82.24 per cent. A total of 2,32,619 repeater candidates also appeared for the examination,of whom 68,643 (29.51 per cent) passed. The number of candidates scoring distinction increased by more than 40,000 this year. Number of candidates securing first-class also showed a similar rise of 40,000-plus.
MSBSHSE chairman Sarjerao Jadhav said it was the first time in the recent history of the Board that SSC examination results are out by June 7. We made efforts to ensure results are declared early. The extended result dates used to have a cascading effect on junior college admissions and eventually led to shrinking of the first term of Class XI. This academic loss can now be avoided, he said.
Among the nine divisions of the Board,newly formed Konkan division topped with a success rate of 93.79 per cent. Kolhapur division was second with 90.36 per cent,Mumbai division followed with 88.92 per cent.
