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.

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.
