Exams for class I to IX will not be preponed: Min

About 50,000 students did not appear for the class XII public examination that has been conducted by the school education department across the state. School education minister Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi on Thursday chaired a meeting with concerned officials to discuss the issue.

On the first day of the class XII public examinations which took place on Monday, about 50,000 students did not turn up due to several reasons including health issues and exam fear. The rising fever cases in the state is also said to be a reason for the low attendance. The department directed district heads to inspect the schools and figure out the exact reason. In the meeting, the minister discussed the possibilities of providing another chance to the students who did not turn up for the examination.

Following the raise in fever cases, the state government has also been trying its best to control the infection. To keep the situation under control, information has leaked that the department has been planning to conduct annual examinations for classes I to IX much ahead of their schedule. However, the minister said that the information was fake and the government has no such proposals. He further said that the examination would be conducted as per the schedule.

Speaking to reporters, the minister said, “A discussion was held after a large number of students failed to appear for the public examination. In 2021-22, about 1.90 lakh students were identified and rejoined in the schools. Of which, many had dropped out after a few days. But exam hall tickets were given to them as well with an aim to bring them back to school. But now, we are forced to review our decision.”

Expressing hope that a solution would be found ahead of the class X public examination, he said that the dropouts had been high in Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri and Dindigul districts and a discussion would be held with the respective district heads to sort out the issue. He pointed out that 49,000 students did not turn up for examinations during 2019 due to Covid-19 fear.About 50,000 students did not appear for the class XII public examination that has been conducted by the school education department across the state.
