Message to students from Kamal, Madhavan

As Tamil Nadu Plus Two results were declared on Thursday, actors Kamal Haasan and Madhavan came out with messages for students.

The actor-turned-politician posted: “மாணவ கண்மணிகாள், பரீட்சைகளும், மதிப்பெண்களும் மட்டுமே உங்களின் அளவுகோல் அல்ல. அதிக மதிப்பெண் பெற்று மகிழ்ந்திருப்போருக்கு வாழ்த்துக்கள்.பெறாதோர் வருந்த வேண்டாம். திறமைகளை தேர்வுகள் மட்டும் அளவிடுவதில்லை. வாழ்க்கை உங்களுக்காய் காத்திருக்கிறது. ”

The rough translation goes like this: “Students, exams and marks don’t determine your capacity. I appreciate the ones who have scored well. People who have not scored well, there is no need to worry about it. Talent is not measured by exams. Life is awaiting you.”

Madhavan has revealed that he only scored 58% in his board exams and encouraged students who scored less. The talented actor says that the game hasn’t really started yet.

He posted: “To all those who just got their board results— congratulations to those who exceeded their expectations and aced it … and to the rest I want to say I got 58% on my board exams.. The game has not even started yet my dear friends.”

Tamil Nadu recorded a pass percentage of 92.3 in the Plus Two board exams, the results of which were declared on Thursday. The Directorate of Government Examinations took students and teachers by surprise with the sudden declaration of results since the last exam for absentees is scheduled for July 27.

As many as 7.79 lakh students wrote the exams in March. The pass percentage saw a marginal increase, compared with the 91.3% recorded last year.
