The students, who were given two to five stances of Sangam literature books such as Pathinenkeezhkanakku and Pathinenmelkanakku, completed the task within the stipulated time. Ettuthogai, Pathupattu, Agananuru, Purananuru, Kalithogai, Thirukkural, Nanmanikadigai, Elathi and Iniyavai Narpathu were among those written in Tamizhi.
