The half-yearly examinations that were scheduled to be conducted from December 7 for government and government-aided school students of Classes XI and XII have now been postponed in Chennai, Chengalpattu, Tiruvallur and Kancheepuram districts.

According to a release on Wednesday from the School Education department, the half-yearly exams will be conducted as per the present schedule from December 11. “The exam scheduled for December 7 and 8 will be held on December 14 and 20,” the release said.

This is to avoid difficulties in preparing question papers at the school-level for the four districts which was hit badly by Cyclone Michaung.

The Chief Education Officers in the respective districts were also notified about the conduct of the exams accordingly. The exams scheduled for Classes VI to X will be held as per schedule.
