224 students in panic mode as board holds results
HSC board puts the blame on colleges for not submitting marks of internal exams on time; assures that results would be out latest by tomorrow.
Due to a technical snag, the State Board’s Pune division has not been able to declare Std XII results of 224 students and officials claim that one reason for the nail-biting wait is a technical snag. When they couldn’t find the result online, many students and parents rushed to the board office at Shivajinagar where the authorities of the divisional board assured them of the results being declared latest by tomorrow.
“I just don’t know what the problem is,” said Sadhana Shirgaonkar, a student from Dr Shamrao Kalmadi Junior College. “In my whole college group, I am the only one whose result is ‘reserved’. The board officials are now saying that I have to wait till June 6.”
Another parent, Archana Bokil, said, “My boy Sarvesh is very studious. He scored 92 per cent in Std X. But today he is very nervous. He even avoided coming with me here at the board’s office. The board should at least care about the feelings of students who are eagerly waiting for the result.”
The other side
The Pune divisional board’s secretary Pushpalata Pawar tried to calm the agitated parents and students and said, “There are 224 students in Pune division whose results have been kept on hold due to two reasons. Either some junior college has not intimated us regarding the internal marks of some students on time, or the files with statements of marks of some subjects of these students were missing at the time of manually sending files to the state board’s head office for a final marks list. In any case, students don’t have to worry as we have all original answer sheets.”
When asked by when can all the students expect their results, she said, “In any case, the students will get their final marks list on June 6 through all junior colleges.” “Till three days ago, 1200 students’ results were reserved. We have minimised it to 224 today. We are working overnight on the task to declare the results of all these students and will do it by Saturday,” she added.
