Tamil Nadu asks schools to conduct tests for Class XI admissions | Chennai News

CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu school education department on Tuesday asked schools to allot groups to students based on a test if they receive more applications than the available seats in Class XI.
The state government cancelled the Class X exams due to Covid-19. In the absence of common exams such as quarterly exams and half yearly exams, the department issued a circular to conduct the tests.
“Whichever stream received more applications, the school should conduct a test based on the questions taken from relevant subjects in lower classes. They should prepare 50 multiple-choice based questions (MCQs) and based on the marks, they can allot the groups,” the circular from school education commissioner K Nanthakumar to all chief educational officers said.
If the school receives lesser applications than the available seats, it can allot seats based on the interest of students, the circular added.
It also allowed to increase 10% to 15% seats in each stream in Class XI in government and government-aided schools if the applications are more than the available seats.
The circular asked the schools to commence online classes for Class XI in the third week of June by following the Covid-19 guidelines.
It also asked the schools to start online classes and classes through Kalvi TV for Class XII students.
