NAVI MUM­BAI: More than 75% of Class 12 stu­dents from Navi Mum­bai who ap­peared for the HSC ex­ams passed. Re­sults were de­clared on Thurs­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the state board data, 12,337 stu­dents (fresh and re­peater can­di­dates) reg­is­tered for the exam, of which 12,259 ap­peared for the exam, and 9,281 of them ( 75.71%) cleared the exam.

Only two col­leges ac­quired a cent per­cent re­sult — Nerul’s SIES Ju­nior Col­lege of Com­merce and St Xavier’s High School and Ju­nior Col­lege of Science, Nerul. Five col­leges se­cured a pass per­cent­age of over 95%.

Teach­ers, how­ever, said the per­for­mance of the stu­dents has dipped this year. “The stu­dents have not fared as well as last year, the science sec­tion in the col­lege has not given the best per­for­mance. I think this is be­cause it is the first year the sub­jects were com­bined, and stu­dents prob­a­bly had a tough time cop­ing,” said a teacher from a col­lege in Vashi, on the con­di­tion of anonymity.

De­spite the dip, there were sev­eral suc­cess sto­ries from the city. Sreelek­shmi Pil­lai topped SIES Nerul with 91%, fol­lowed by Hi­ral Kathiria who scored 89.6% and Rishabh Jain who got 89.3%.

This was the sixth con­sec­u­tive year that the Nerul col­lege se­cured a 100% re­sult, said Rita Basu, prin­ci­pal of the col­lege. “This year, 257 stu­dents ap­peared for the exam. We are still eval­u­at­ing and com­par­ing the pre­vi­ous year’s statis­tics, but so far it seems like there has been an im­prove­ment,” said Basu.

At Be­la­pur’s DY Patil Col­lege, Amit Pandey from the science stream scored a stag­ger­ing 96.5% while Deepti Tarkar topped the com­merce sec­tion with 83%.

St Mary’s Vashi recorded a pass per­cent of 99.77%, just miss­ing the 100% re­sult mark.

At Vashi’s Fa­ther Agnel Mul­tipur­pose School and Ju­nior Col­lege, the pass per­cent­age this year was 99.21.

From the science sec­tion, Sau­rabh Jag­tap topped the col­lege, scor­ing 92.5%, and the com­merce sec­tion top­per was Bharat Choud­hary, who scored 91.3%.

“From our col­lege, of the 254 stu­dents who at­tended the exam, 252 stu­dents have passed, one stu­dent’s re­sult has been re­served and one stu­dent from the com­merce sec­tion has failed,” said an of­fi­cial from the col­lege.
