Tamil Nadu continues not to disclose ranks and toppers of board exams

236

Continuing last year’s decision of not announcing ranks and toppers of board exams, Tamil Nadu’s school education department reiterated same rule this year too. Earlier, the government would recognise the top three ranks in the state. But last year, the government decided to do away with announcement of ranks for Class X and XI board exams and this year it applied to Class XII board exams too. The decision had been taken to prevent unhealthy competition and promotion among schools, leading to stress for students.
