A record 957 students got full marks or 100% score in SSC result. Among schools, 22,384 schools got 100% results. There are a total of 22767 schools registered with the Maharashtra Board. Despite all these achievements, students seemed miffed with the board as over three hours after the declaration, the board’s official website was not working.
The links to check results were available, however, it took so much time to load that only a handful of students could access the result. State School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad took to Twitter to tell ways on how to check score, however, it did not work for most of the students. To make matters worse, there was no official word on when the websites will resume working. Students were left at trying and re-trying to load websites.

Some students started meme fest
Even child rights activist and Supreme Court advocate joined students in their protest.
