Tamil Nadu’s ‘centum’ madness: Of what use is a full score when thousands pull it off

Tamil Nadu’s ‘centum’ madness: Of what use is a full score when thousands pull it off?

Getting 200 marks in a subject should not be the aim of a student, said an educationist.

With the Class XII board exam results out on Tuesday, students in Tamil Nadu can be proud of the overall pass percentage of 91.4 per cent. But it seems that scoring full marks in various subjects has become a fairly frequent occurrence now.

Three students have topped the examination with a score of 1195 out of 1200, Aarthi V and Jeshwanth KH of Shri Vidya Mandir Matriculation Secondary School in Krishnagiri and Chatriya Kavin of Good Shepherd School in Chennai.

Pavithra G of Shree Niketan School in Tiruvallur and Shruti S of Good Shepherd School in Chennai secured the second rank with 1194 marks. The overall pass percentage of the state at 91.4 per cent is an increase from from 90.6 per cent in 2014, 2015 and 88.1 percent in 2013.

There is no definite advantage even where the standard is high. Everyone is looking for white collar jobs. How many are opting for research?
Very few from state boards do well in JEE for IIT.

At best they can join Anna univ guindy or MITchromepet on basis of their marks.

if they are in tamil medium it is uphill struggle in colleges.

It is well known that state board has low standard.

most brahmins have moved to cbse or icse.
More number of sixes and boundaries in shorter distance boundary field.
So also, huge numbers of centum in State Board syylabus.
In my days to get a Second Class in B.Com from Madras University under Dr.A L Mudaliar, was a difficult feat ! I have never seen First Class in B.Com. In those days we can get centum only in Mathematics. Strange are the changes. Today I feel hjappy to see the liberal attitude in evaluation of Examination papers. I welcome the change. This will certainly encourage the students to study more.

In those days, if you secure even Second Class in Arts or Commerce and first in Science, you are assured of Bank Job. First Class Science Graduates could also become Demonstrators in Colleges. Now it is totally different.
