Concerns over the delay in HSC results were calmed yesterday after the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) announced that the class XII results would be declared on June 2 at 1 pm.

The announcement will come as relief to students, as there were fears that the results could get delayed due to the recently held elections. mid-day had earlier reported (‘HSC, SSC result dates keep students on the edge’, May 26) how the state board was reluctant to even announce a tentative result date, despite other boards like CBSE and ICSE having already declared their results in the second half of this month.
When contacted, MSBSHSE Secretary Krishnakumar Patil said, “We have not succumbed to any media pressure. We announced the result date today only after ensuring all result preparations were over.”
When asked why the board could not set a tradition of declaring HSC results by May-end every year (Last year, the result for HSC was declared on May 30), he replied, “In the past, too, we have declared results in first week of June. According to protocol, it is expected to declare class XII results before June 10. So, there has been no delay in declaring this year’s HSC results.”
Board officials said the students could check their results online at www.mahresult.nic.in, www.maharashtra.education.com, www.hscresult.mkcl.org. Students can take a printout of their mark sheets from these websites, but the bonafide mark sheet would only be distributed at their colleges on June 10 at 3 pm. The Board has also tied up with telecom company BSNL to make results available through an SMS service. On result day, students can receive information about their result by sending an SMS MHHSC<seat no> to 57766. Nearly 14 lakh students across the state appeared for HSC exams that were held from February 26 to March 26.
Carrying on the trend from last year, the board will allow any student who feels that their answer sheet may have not been evaluated properly to apply for rechecking. The student would have to apply for a photocopy of the answer sheet for any particular subject or all subjects by paying fees at their respective divisional board between June 2 and 21. Within five days after receiving the photocopy, students can apply for rechecking. The option of recounting of marks is also available. Students can approach their college or divisional board between June 10 and 20.
