Of the 1,53,401 repeater students registered for the exams, 1,52,552 appeared and 75,262 cleared the exams, which means a pass percentage of 49.34 per cent.

Sindhudurg district saw the highest pass percentage of 96.38 while Nanded division saw the lowest pass percentage of 81.13.
The pass percentage of children with special needs was 87.46.

Of the total of 50 subjects for which exams were held, 14 saw 100 per cent result.

The only significant difference was in the result of general mathematics, where the pass percentage last year was 84.75 while this year it was 79.49.

A total of 3,74,014 students got first-class with distinction, 5,37,273 got first class, 4,24,878 second class and 1,01,757 students just passed the exams.

A total of 4,731 schools in the state scored 100 per cent result while 21 got zero per cent. The exams were conducted in eight mediums, namely Marathi, Hindi, Urdu, English, Gujarati, Kannada, Sindhi and Telugu.

From next year, 20% must in theory to clear a subject

From academic year 2015-16 onwards, individual passing will be necessary in theory paper. For a 100-marks paper, 80 is for written paper and 20 for practical. So far, if a student got 20 in practical and 15 in theory, he was considered to have passed in that particular subject.

However, now a student will have to get 20 per cent marks individually in written paper and 35 per cent aggregate to pass that particular subject, state board officials in Pune said on Monday.

For physics, chemistry and biology exams, 70 marks are given for theory paper. Even in this now, a candidate has to secure at least 20 per cent, besides an aggregate of 35 per cent to clear the subjects.

The board is also planning to make the language question papers activity-based from the next year onwards in class 9. Till now, students with third language as English were getting activity-based question papers but from 2016, all language exams in class 9 will be activity-based. This will be introduced till class 12 in natural progression mode with the first SSC batch attempting activity-based language question papers in 2017.
