Maharashtra State Board for Secondary and Higher Secondary Education has finally announced the SSC results 2014 yesterday, schools across the city were surprised to receive calls from anxious parents stating that their children’s results had been reserved. Mumbai divisional board claims that ssc results 2014 had been withheld for only those candidates whose internal marks had not been provided by the schools to the board.
The Maharashtra board officials has told all parents that schools have not submitted the internal marks. However, school officials stated that we have proof that we submitted the marks to the board twice in the past three months. Chandrika Ragji, principal of Yashodham High School in Goregaon (E) said that, the Board officials had signed and acknowledged receipt of the marks.
The principals of several schools told mid-day that the board had asked them to re-submit the internal assessment marks to the board just a week ago, which we did, and now the board says we haven’t sent the information. The principal of a Malad school said that i'm sure that the ssc results were delayed because the board has misplaced some of the marks.
At St Xavier’s Boys Academy in Churchgate, the results of 12 students have been reserved. The school found out that most of these were students with various learning disabilities (LD). “If the board claims that internal assessment marks have not been provided to them, then that’s wrong.
For students with LD, they are allowed to opt for an easier version of Maths, wherein practical marks are not a component. What is the board trying to prove?” asked Savio D’Mello, the school’s vice-principal.
Hundreds of SSC students and parents flocked the Mumbai division’s board office in Vashi on Tuesday. Most were demanding reasons for the results being withheld and expressed worry that this would affect their junior college admission.
“I couldn't see my daughter’s ssc result on the website despite entering the correct information. We were all very excited and anxious, but now we will have to wait longer to know the results. Board officials have registered my daughter's hall ticket details and have promised to let me know about the result in 2-3 days. I hope this does not affect her junior college admission,” said Dinesh Kurdhunkar (50), a parent.
Many students and parents were also miffed at their calls to the board helpline numbers going unanswered. “I called the board helpline number for three hours at a stretch, but no one answered my calls,” said Naigaon resident Kalpana Sharma, whose sister appeared for the SSC exams this year.

On the other side Laxmikant Pande, Mumbai divisional board chairman told mid-day that the SSC results were withheld because schools failed to submit marks on time. “We had to request schools to submit the marks right till the last moment, because of which some results have been withheld.
We request students to visit our board office and submit their information and we will ensure that they receive their marks within the next couple of days,” said Pande. He, however, refused to state exactly how many students’ results were reserved.
Board Officials from the state board office in Pune said that the problem of thousands of results being reserved is limited to the Mumbai division. Schools also told mid-day that the problem may have cropped up due to the hall ticket errors that had mard the beginning of the SSC board exams this year.
In the midst of all this, board officials assured mid-day that students will get the hard copies of their marksheets on June 26. Statistic that shames is that the number of schools in the state in which the entire batch of SSC students has failed.
