Theory, practical pass marks ratio reversed

  • Chief Superintendents will be posted from other schools
  • 44,682 candidates from Villupuram and Cuddalore districts will appear for the exams

    VILLUPURAM: Two changes have been made for the Plus-Two examinations scheduled from March 1 to 21.

    One is the ratio of minimum marks to be scored in the theory and practical examinations for a pass. The other is the invigilation set-up, particularly for core subjects whose aggregate is important for admission to professional courses.

    Chief Educational Officer (Villupuram) P.A. Naresh told The Hindu that the ratio had been reversed to 30 marks in theory and 40 marks in the practicals. This pattern, he said, was expected to improve the performance of the candidate.
