MUMBAI: The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) on Friday declared the results of class 12-supplementary examinations, which were held in the month of July. From the Mumbai division, only 5,600 students managed to pass the exam out of the total 29,057 students who registered for this re-examination.

As per the MSBSHSE, over a lakh students appeared for this exam across the state in the nine divisions. However, only 22.65 per cent managed to clear the examination. A total of 1,021,60 students appeared, out of which only 23,140 passed. The highest pass percentage is recorded in Latur division with 31.48 per cent while in the Mumbai division only 19.27 per cent passed this year.  

Subhash Bhorse, secretary of MSBSHSE, Mumbai division, said students need more attempts. “They get a period of 30 to 45 days to prepare for one or two subjects. It would be easier for them if they focus,” Mr Bhorse said.

Even though the Mumbai had maximum registered students, the pass percentage has been consistently low for the past couple of years. In 2016, the pass percentage was 21.93 while in 2017 it was 18.74.
