MUMBAI: For the first time in almost a decade, over 80% of the students who wrote the Maharashtra board's HSC exam have passed. The state's pass rate for both freshers and repeaters is 84%, up 11.5% from last year.

In the Mumbai division, which includes Thane and Raigad, the pass rate has increased from last year's 69.1% to 81.1%. But despite the 12% rise, the division ranks eight, ahead only of Nagpur. The first rank has gone to the Konkan, with a pass rate of 92.6%.

Once again, girls have outdone boys, with a pass rate of 89.3% against 79.9% in the state, and 87% against 76.3% in the Mumbai division. Of 13 lakh students who took the exam in the state, over 7.5 lakh were boys and above 5.7 lakh girls. Last year, 78.8% of girl candidates passed compared to 67.6% of boy students.

On Mumbai's low rank among the divisions, board officials said the reason was a higher share of students. "Mumbai has the largest pool of students. Despite this, the pass rate is so great. Also, we had a large number of private candidates and repeaters. Among 39,084 repeaters who wrote the exam, only 11,087 passed," said Laxmikant Pande, chairperson of the board's Mumbai division, which had 3.26 lakh candidates. "But though the pass rate is not as high as that of the top divisions, more students have secured higher marks this time (10.9%secured distinction compared to last year's 9.4%)."

Several colleges reported an increase in the number of high scorers. "The leap among arts students has been tremendous. The number of students with distinction has risen," said Manju Nichani, principal, KC College, Churchgate.

At R A Podar College, Matunga, the number of students who have scored above 90% has increased, said its principal Shobhana Vasudevan. "The board has introduced various changes, like internal exams, which is a welcome move as this entails evaluating students throughout the year, helping them score better."

In a major change of format for the commerce and arts streams, the board introduced 20% internal marks in all subjects. Earlier, only languages (arts and commerce) had internal marking, awarded on the basis of oral and written skills.

This year, students also had to appear for environmental education, a compulsory subject introduced in the revised syllabus and worth 50 marks. The subject clearly helped boost the pass rate as 99.99% of students in the state passed in it. Till last year, marks received in the subject were excluded from the total.
