After a host of errors that riddled SSC exams and results, the students finally received their marksheets on Thursday, including the 1,500 whose results had been withheld by the board for various reasons. However, many students are still unsure if they have received the right result.

One of them is 16-year-old Manthan Solanki, who appeared for his exams with the hall ticket number he’d received from the board in March.
However, when he used the same number to apply for the online junior college admissions, the website stated that the number was already registered for the admission process, under another student’s name. “When we enquired, we found that two students were given the same number.
A few weeks later, we were provided with a new number and we’ve received my son’s result with the new number as well. Now, we are confused if the marks are his or the other student’s,” said his father, Girish. The Divisional State Board has already received similar queries from many parents.
“Students don’t have to worry about it; they have been given the right marksheets. Still, if they are unsure, they can approach the board office. We will allow them to check the photocopy of their answer sheets to ensure their marks are correct,” said Laxmikant Pande, chairman of the divisional board.
Even as board officials insist that there are no errors in the score cards, some principals still claim that many students have no received the correct results. “There are students whose results still mention that they have failed in graded subjects, which is incorrect. We will approach the Vashi board office on Friday for clarity,” informed Prashant Redij, member of the Headmasters’ Association of Mumbai.
On account of the confusion surrounding the SSC results, the deputy director of education’s office has extended their deadline for uploading application forms on their website for junior college admissions, till 4 pm today. In case there are any corrections in the applications, the changes should be made today by 4 pm.
