The Government Syed Murtuza Higher Secondary School in the city, Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Musiri and Government Boys Higher Secondary School, Lalgudi, have been designated as nodal centres for online filing of applications for private candidates appearing for the March 2014 SSLC/Plus Two examinations.

Last year, private candidates were allowed to file their applications online through browsing centres. But mistakes in the spelling of names of candidates, initials, data of birth and other details caused problems in issue of certificates.

Applicants also had to go to three places to get the photographs, upload the applications and to pay the examination fee.

To avoid the problem, nodal centres have been designated this year.
