The ADC spoke to R R Bhise, secretary of Mumbai Divisional Board, who said, “The result this year is not too bad. If we look at the overall pass percentage combining fresh candidates and the repeaters, the pass percentage has dropped by 0.83 percent. Mumbai division has the highest number of students scoring distinction and first class. The results overall is good, but we are looking at improving it further.”
“The state has bettered its performance as compared to last year. However we are looking the areas we need to improve in. It was surprising that Konkan division managed to record the highest pass percentage this year. Many people would attribute this to malpractices or copying cases. I would like to clarify that the number of copying cases registered in Konkan division was the least compared to the other eight divisions,” said Sarjerao Jadhav, Chairman of MSBSHSE.
Jadhav added, “Though Mumbai division has been witnessing a drop in pass percentage since the past two years, I don’t think any special attention is needed as the drop is marginal and would soon be reversed.”
