90 percenters up 43% in HSC, degree cutoffs may get steeper

PUBLISH DATE 31st May 2018

The state recorded a pass percentage of 88.41 in the higher secondary certificate (HSC) exam, the results for which were declared by the Maharashtra state board of secondary and higher secondary education on Wednesday. The pass percentage dipped by 1.09% as against last year — partly responsible for this was the almost 4% drop in the results of the minimum competency vocation course (MCVC).

The number of students scoring above 90% went up from 3,819 last year to 5,486 this time — a whopping 43% increase which is set to make vying for senior college seats all the more tougher. Mumbai division had the highest number of 90-plussers, followed by Pune.

Konkan maintained the top spot among divisions with a 94.85% pass rate, Kolhapur was next with 91% while Nashik was at the bottom of the table with 86.13%. Pune division retained its third spot among the nine divisions with 89.58%, but its pass percentage fell by 1.58 in comparison to last year.

Addressing a news conference here on Wednesday, Shakuntala Kale, chairperson of the state board, said, “We have ensured that the results are announced in time in spite of rumours doing the rounds on social media, confusing parents and students. We will be filing cases with the cyber cell of the city police against those who spread rumours about the result dates.”

With Konkan and Kolhapur having comparatively fewer students registering for the exam, these divisions manage to maintain the top two positions almost every year.

Most 90 percenters from Mumbai divn, followed by Pune & Nagpur

Aurangabad division retained its fourth spot with 88.74%, followed by Latur, which jumped three spots to reach fifth position with 88.31%.

Amravati, meanwhile, slipped one position to sixth with 88.08%, followed by Nagpur in seventh place with 87.57%. Mumbai was eighth with 87.44% — a dip of 0.77% over last year. Nashik’s decrease in pass percentage was the highest among all divisions — about 2.09%.

The highest number of 90%-and-above scorers are from the Mumbai division (2,288), followed by Pune

(790). Next in line is Nagpur division with 698 scoring above 90%. Amravati followed with 594. Kolhapur accounted for 350 90% scorers while Aurangabad had 284 of them. Latur (259), Nashik

(156) and Konkan (57) rounder off the list.

Kale said the state board had appointed external examiners for the science practicals as well as for the environment subject. “To ensure security, we had a barcode on every page of the answersheet. As always, there were multiple question paper sets for the English language.”

About 9,095 repeaters had appeared for the exam, and of them 2,794 passed (30.72%). This is an 8% drop in comparison to last year. Within Pune district, 1,21,993 students appeared for the test and 1,09,601 passed.

A total of 38 cases of malpractice were registered and 35 results have been kept reserved by the Maharashtra state board of secondary and higher secondary education.
