WITH AN increase of nearly 1.2 lakh students set to appear for the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) written examination beginning Tuesday (February 28), officials of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) have confirmed that this is the highest number of students registered for the exams so far.

Confirming the figure, Gangadhar Mhamane, chairman of the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, said 15,05,365 students have registered for February-March 2017 exams as compared to 13,88,467 students during last exams.

“There could be two main reasons for the substantial increase in numbers. One factor is that the SSC results have been quite good for the last two years and more importantly, students are getting more chances to pass Std X and not lose out on an academic year. Since we started taking supplementary exams in July itself, many students passed and joined first year junior college and the effect can be seen now,” said Mhamane.
