: The school might not have achieved centum results in the recently held Plus Two examinations but it has emerged as a school to be most watched in this part of the region thanks to its achievement.

The overall pass percentage of the school is 95.64 and it figures at 24 {+t} {+h} place in the list released by the Chief Educational Office based on percentage of pass among 93 schools. Some of the schools placed above it have attained cent per cent results by sending just a few students for the examinations. But the Syed Ammal Higher Secondary School, a government-aided institution, started in 1965, has secured 95.64 per cent out of 849 students appeared in the examinations. Of them, 812 students — 464 girls and 348 boys — emerged victorious, an amazing result among the schools which are following State board pattern.

Another surprising figure is that as many as 1,100 students have been promoted or newly enrolled to the Plus Two in the school for 2011-2012 academic year.

Some more students have also approached the school management for Plus Two admission. It means that more than 1,100 students will write the all-important public examinations from a school alone, raising surprise that it will be among the very few schools in the State in sending the highest number of students for Plus Two examinations.

“It is really a tough task for us to prepare an average of around 700 to 800 students every year for Plus Two examinations. We get an average of 95 per cent pass results every year from a large number of candidates. It is possible because of a team of dedicated teachers,” says Babu Abdullah, Correspondent of the school.
