CEO urges teachers to identify slow learners

There must be a special focus on Plus One students as they would be facing public examination for the first time, according to Chief Educational Officer N. Marimuthu.

Speaking at a review meeting with the heads of high and higher secondary schools from government, aided, Kallar reclamation and Adi Dravidar schools here on Saturday, he said that teachers of classes 10, 11 and 12 must make special efforts to identify slow learners and provide additional coaching to them after school hours.

“The nominal rolls - the list of students taking the public examinations - have arrived. All teachers must prepare their students for practical exams and main exams that are to be held in March and April with all seriousness,” he said.

According to a School Education Department offcial, the results of students in class 11 were not encouraging. Many students fared below 50% in most subjects in the quarterly and half-yearly examinations. “A lot of competitive exams like National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) have questions from class 11 portions. Students must ensure that they prepared well,” he said.
