The Tamil Nadu Board HSC +2 exams started on March 1 and ended on April 6 this year. Last year, Tamil Nadu witnessed a marginal improvement in the performance of students in the TN HSC +2 exams as the overall pass percentage was recorded at 92.1 as compared to 91.4 in 2016.

The directorate said that out of the 893,262 students, who took the exam, 822,838 passed. Girls performed better with a pass percentage of 94.5 as compared to 89.3% for boys. It said 1,171 students scored over 1,180 out of 1,200 marks.

Last year too, Virudhnagar topped all the districts with a pass percentage of 97.85.

The state did not release the names of the toppers and its education minister KA Sengottaiyan said that naming them would put additional pressure on students who scored less than the toppers. Students across the state welcomed the government’s decision to refrain from naming the toppers immediately.
