A total 2.9 lakh answer sheets are yet to be assessed and about 1 lakh need to be moderated. The Saturday’s count of answer sheets, which was 2.7 lakh, went up as several miscellaneous folders were now loading up in the system.

Firing cannons on the Maharashtra government over the issue, Aaditya Thackeray, Yuva Sena chief put out a number of tweets from his handle alleging that the Maharashtra government has played with the future of students.

Commenting on the incident, the appeared students said that the delay in results have left them hanging as they delay might cause him loss of seats in foreign courses and jobs as well.
