CHENNAI: The plus-2 state board exams began with a relatively easy language paper on Thursday. “Except for two one mark questions, Tamil paper-1 was very much the same as last year. The question paper had many expected questions and students found it easy,” teachers said. Some students said that a four mark question about poet Bharathidasan’s song was a little confusing.

Around 9 lakh candidates from 2,794 exam centres from Tamil Nadu and Puducherry registered for the exam. “The plus 2 public exam started without any major issues. No incidents were reported from across the state,” officials from the Directorate of Examinations said. School education minister K.A. Sengottaiyan and school education secretary Pradeep Yadav inspected the public exam preparations at Lady Willingdon Higher Secondary School, Triplicane in Chennai.

 

The examination directorate also launched a helpline to clarify queries and doubts for students and parents. “We did not receive many calls today. Some parents called and enquired about the Neet and staff members advised them to contact the authorities concerned,” sources said.

Some district level officers complained about the lack of interest among  teachers for exam duty.  “We have barely managed to appoint invigilators as many teachers reported sick on Thursday. The department should initiate steps to have more teachers for exam work or it will affect the supervision of exams,” they said.

 

In Chennai, over 50,000 students appeared for the plus-2 exams. At Puzhal prison, over 100 prisoners are writing the plus 2 exams this year.
