Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) declared the results of the SSC supplementary exam on Tuesday and out of 1.3 lakh students, who had appeared for this year's examination, only 25.37% passed.

The state board declared the results at 1 pm on 25 August on its official website, where students were required to provide their roll numbers and mother's names to check the result of supplementary exam 2015.

Over 1.38 lakh students, who had failed the Maharashtra SSC Board, had appeared for the Class 10 supplementary examination in July. However, only 25.37% students cleared the exam this year and Mumbai registered a pass percentage of 17.84.

This year, the supplementary exams were conducted three months in advance on the directions of education minister Vinod Tawde. MSBSHSE used to conduct the SSC supplementary exam in October every year.

However, Tawde did not want the students who failed the March exam to waste one academic year. Around 17.24 lakh students had appeared for the SSC board exam in March this year and as many as 2.11 lakh of them had failed, The Times of India reported.
