Every year, the Higher Secondary (HSC) board examination results are usually announced by the month of May, however, this was delayed this year due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country which led a lockdown. Based on High Court's decision earlier in the month of May 2020, it was announced said that HSC board exam results will be released by June 10, 2020. The government had given a nod to begin the process of assessing the examination sheets. 

However, in a recent conversation with Mumbai Live, Maharashtra State Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad confirmed that the HSC Board Exam Results 2020 were now delayed and will not be released on June 10. On being asked about the same, she said, "It is not possible to announce the results on June 10 and they will now be released in a month or so, as the paper correction has been delayed due to the lockdown. Answers sheets were collected at the post offices and centres which were then sent or assessment to the respective teachers, and we are monitoring this process since May 18. We are working towards announcing the results by the first week of July."

In May 2020, the Secretary of the School Education Board, Vandana Krishna had asked authorities to ensure that the process of assessing papers was conducted in a smooth fashion, where teachers could either collect the answer sheets or they could be delivered and picked up by them.

The lockdown due to coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has delayed several processes in the education sector. While the examinations for first and second-year college students were cancelled sometime back, CM Uddhav Thackeray,  On May 31, 2020, announced that the university examinations for final-year students were also cancelled, and they would be marked based on aggregates. Guidelines were issued by the UGC.

Further, the last 'geography' examination for SSC students (class 10th) was also cancelled this year, and a decision was recently taken that the scores of the other five papers would be used to draw an average score for the cancelled paper. Chairperson of the Maharashtra State Board, Shakuntala Kale stated the same to the media
