City girl Rakhi Bhagwate of Prerna Convent – scored 99.09% (545/550) – is one of the top achievers of the state in the SSC 2013 results declared on Friday. But overall, the Nagpur division yet again slumped to one of its worst-ever SSC performances this year.
After ending at the bottom in HSC results, it finished second last in the SSC results on Friday, just above Latur division. Last year, its position was seventh among nine divisions. On the other hand, it maintained its dubious distinction of topping the charts for cases of unfair means cases in both exams, though there was a slight decline in number of cases. The efforts of Maharashtra State Board’s Nagpur division chairman Chandramani Borkar apparently fell short of improving its position.
