TN state board results ring in happiness

The class XII board exams results were announced on Thursday, May 9. Across the state, scenes of anxiety turned to jubilation; the overall pass percentage stands at 88.1 per cent, higher than last year’s 86.7 per cent. A few images that capture the mood of the day.

Why does the government not consider students who did not take Tamil as the subjects for Language paper 1 and 2 in the official rank list? Right now it does no consider people who took other languages in its official rank list.

The reasoning here is that it wants to give some credit to those taking Tamil as their language papers.

If the government truly wanted to recognize those testing in Tamil then it should rank only those students who studied all their subjects in Tamil.

Such a ranking would, in addition, tell us how well schools that are directly run by the government (public schools) perform in the 12th standard exam. Also it seems impressive to list the number of centums in each subject, maybe the public will be interested in knowing how many of these centums were obtained by students who studied and took the exam in Tamil.

Hope someone in the education department is reading this, and decides to publish such statistics? Maybe The Hindu could raise this in its print edition

Congratulations to all the Toppers of TN XII Exams 2013. Best wished
for all those who passed the exams. Coming to reality, the education
system in Tamilnadu has become more of memorizing Question Answers and
vomiting the memorized things in the exam hall. I know how students
are taught to even memorize mathematics sums which ensures centum in
the exams. One should remember that a good number of the top ranking
students of XII - TN admitted to Engineering Colleges FAILED IN
MATHEMATICS last year. Removal of Entrance Examination system for
Engineering & Medical Admissions has killed the analytical skills and
intelligence of TN students.
