TN Plus Two Exam 2023: plus two language in tamilnadu ,board exam 2023, About 50,000 students did not appear in the examination. The issue of dropout of students from the examination on such a large scale was also raised in the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly on Friday. State School Education Minister Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi assured the House that steps would be taken to identify potential dropouts and encourage them to appear for supplementary exams.
The minister said that adequate awareness will be created among students and parents on the importance of appearing for board exams to complete school education. Responding to a special calling motion moved by the main opposition AIADMK and other parties in the Assembly, Poyyamozhi said Chief Minister MK Stalin was the first to raise the issue as to why so many students did not appear for the language paper for the first time. .
The state government has provided Rs 40,299 crore to the school education department and given several benefits including providing free uniforms and notebooks to government school students. Despite this, the question that is uppermost in the minds of the people is why so many students did not appear for the language test. All the students of 12th were promoted when they were in 10th because the exam was not conducted due to Kovid.
