Weak students

Meanwhile, prompted by the drop in the overall pass percentage by 0.7 in Tiruchi district in the SSLC exam results this year, the Educational Department authorities here have planned to identify weak students and impart intensive coaching to them much earlier this year.

A senior official said the Department had plans to distribute slow learners materials subject-wise to the identified students by July. Frequent tests to assess the performance of students periodically were also on cards with a view to improving the overall pass percentage next time.

The official said a meeting with the Headmasters of institutions in the district would be convened to discuss the reasons for the drop in the overall pass percentage and measures that needed to be taken to gear up next year.
