Mumbai: The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) has not yet announced when it will declare the results of Class 10 (Class X) SSC examination 2016, though multiple reports taking round in the media speculate that the results would be declared Tuesday May 31, 2016.
Generally, the Maharashtra board declares the Class (Class X) SSC results in the first or second week of June. Last year also the Maharashtra board had declared the Class 10 results on June 08, 2015.
However, after Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani stated that all board results this year would be announced before May 31, it was speculated that the Maharashtra SSC Class 10 results 2016 will also be declared before May 31.
But, the Maharashtra board has not yet made any official announcement about the exact date of Class 10 result 2016 declaration. All reports taking round in the media that the results will be announced tomorrow i.e. Tuesday May 31, 2016 are all assumptions and speculations.
If the Maharrashtra board is indeed declaring the results on May 31, it will issue an official release by today evening. Till such an official statement is released, all reports are mere speculations, school managements advise the students.
The Maharashtra board has already announced Class 12 HSC results on May 25, 2016. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) announced Class 12 results on May 21 and Class 10 results on May 27.
States like Karnataka, Rajasthan, Bihar, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Tripura and Jharkhand have also declared their results. Some states which are yet to announce results have announced that they will declare the results before May 31.
"We fail to understand why the Maharashtra board takes so much time to declare the results. States like Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh where number of students appearing for exams are far more than Mahasrashtra. Yet they are able to declare their results much before", Prakash Shah, a parent, said while talking to ummid.com.
"After Union HRD Minister's statement we hoped that like CBSE and other states, Maharashtra too will declare Class 10 results before May 31. But, we are disappointed because so far the board has maintained total silence on the exact date and time of result announcement", he added.
During an hour-long interaction with students on social networking site Facebook on May 17, Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani had said at a meeting headed by Secretary, School Education, HRD Ministry with all state boards held in October 2015 "a decision was taken that all results across the country will surely be declared by May 31".
The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary & Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) is an autonomous body constituted under the provisions of the Maharashtra Act No. 41 of 1965.
The MSBSHSE conducts HSC and SSC exams in Maharashtra via the nine divisional boards: Pune, Mumbai, Aurangabad, Nashik, Kolhapur, Amravati, Latur, Nagpur and Ratnagiri. The office of the board at present is in Pune.
The MSBSHSE declares the results of SSC or Class 10 exam results of all divisions on the same day and at the same time. It declares the results online on www.mahresult.nic.in. Results are also available on some other websites including the board's mirror sites.
Meanwhile, the Maharashtra board has released the date and time table of Supplementary/Repeaters examination for Class 12 HSC students. The students who have failed in the Feb/March 2016 exam and also those who want to improve their grade can appear for this exam.
