91.4% students clear Plus Two exams

Decision on Class 12 exams in TN to be taken in two days

The Tamilnadu government is likely to announce its decision regarding the Class 12 board exams in two days. The state is currently gathering feedback from all stakeholders, including students.

After attending a meeting, School Education Minister Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi said that although the Centre had cancelled CBSE exams for Class 12 students, Tamilnadu Chief Minister MK Stalin is keen on getting feedback from health experts, teachers, parents-teachers forums, students and even from journalists on the feasibility of conducting exams here.

“We need to get a detailed report from the CBSE with regard to calculating marks for the students here,” Poyyamozhi said. “We would get an idea only after receiving the method to assess marks from the Centre.”

The CBSE said that assessment would be made as per well-defined objective criteria in a time-bound manner. The board also said that if students are not satisfied with the assessment, an option to appear in the examinations would be provided by the commission as and when the situation becomes conducive.
