Results of X Std State Board in TN-- SYMA Growth Students excel !!! [Cent % Pass in English Medium]

Old timers will recall that the First Public Examination for the students used to be at Class XI – the passed would join PUC in College and those days, the State First used to secure a little over 400 out of 500 -  a time when securing more than 80% was considered the ultimate !! ..  Those were the times when Newspapers would roll out special editions containing the Roll No. of those Candidates who passed the Examination.  It was ‘all numbers’ and those Special Supplements would sell like hot cakes…….. students, parents, near and dear would be elated to see their Registration No. appearing on the newspaper – it was a time to celebrate and so they would buy toffees and distribute ! – simple life … and the elite few who got 400 and above and got State ranks – their names would appear on the newspaper – the greatest of honours indeed…

Times have changed but this caption has not changed – almost every year, the newsitem reads ‘Girls came on top in the class ten examinations in the state’.  This year  2012, it is no different  with nearly 89 per cent of them passing the Tamil Nadu government-conducted exams, the results for which were announced today – 4th June 2012.  This was the first set of exams held under the uniform education syllabus -  ‘Samacheer Kalvi’  or Tamil Nadu Uniform System of School Education or Equitable education system,  a Government programme to integrate the various school educational systems within the state which has over 1.2 crore students in four streams of school education comprising about 45,000 state board schools, 11,000 matriculation schools, 25 oriental schools and 50 Anglo-Indian schools, with different syllabus, textbooks and schemes of examinations.  Lot of confusion prevailed when it was introduced.

This year,  86 % of the over 11 lakh students cleared the exams; a Tanjavur student, Srinath, topped the exams with 497 out of 500 marks – how phenomenal and how proud his parents, teachers should feel.  A little over 88 per cent of girls and around 84 per cent of boys cleared the exams even as there was a sharp dip in number of students scoring centum in Maths, coming down from around 12000 to around 1100 this time.

Those are statistics – more than the students and some parents, we at SYMA have been anxiously waiting the results.  As you would know, we have invested lot of time and energy in running our tuition centre ‘SYMA Growth’.  Our aim and target group is different – it is not the best students that study in city school who try every sinew to get great marks.

The students of SYMA Growth come from economically lower group of the Society, who lack the financial means to have private tuitions.  Most of them are children of parents who either have not been educated or are engaged in smaller jobs and do not have a good environment conducive to studies.  We have handpicked them and have tried to nurture them to ensure that they pass, raise their knowledge and end-up in good positions, which for sure would raise their economic conditions.  Thus the challenge is always higher – as they come from poor background with illiterate parents, they are otherwise not well-supported.

We have done everything – providing good infrastructure, ensuring tutoring by dedicated intelligent teachers, trying to develop their personality and providing them confidence – supporting them economically too;  still – after closely monitoring them in the examinations conducted periodically, we had our pulse raising with anxiety, expecting them to do well.  Today, they have done us good – by coming out with flying colours and securing good marks.  The results are really encouring making SYMA happy and proud. 

We are very happy to know that all the students of our English Medium passed; and 4 from Tamil Medium failed.  Statistically:

X Standard – English Medium:
37 Appeared – 37 Passed :  10 Students secured above 400; of them 4 above 450.
C Rahul of NKT Boys High School is the topper securing 458 out of 500.      His father works in a small hotel and sure he has done his father proud !!!!

X Standard – Tamil Medium
25 appeared : 21 Pass [4 failed] – One student – Augustin Arul Ponvenchur secured  418.

Congratulations and Well done – Rahul and all other boys & girls.

We pray to Almighty for continued success of this project ‘SYMA Growth’  and look forward to continued support of you all.  The success is due to the blessings of Lord Parthasarathi who guides us in all our steps.  We express our gratitude and thanks to  the  Management of NK Thirumalachariyar Boys High School who provided us the infrastructure,  the HM Mr N Venkatadri and his staff members.   We must place on record our thanks and gratitude to those teachers who taught these students with great dedication, commitment and devotion.  We thank all our teachers -  Mr N Venkatadri,  TS Sriraman, Senthil Murugan, KS Venkatakrishnan, Kannan, T Srinivasan,  KN Vijayalakshmi,  Subashini, Lakshmi Arulalan,  Kanthimathi, Devasena, Vijayakrishnan, MK Sridharan – for their care and attendance. Our Coordinator Mrs Thara and the team who assisted her also deserve special appreciation.

Many of you have supported SYMA especially this project  and it is time for SYMA to say thank you to all of you.  Thank you.

One more year and SYMA happily pursues relentlessly its goal.  We have started distributing the application forms for enrolment into Tuition Centre for the Educational Year 2012-13.  The applications will be processed and deserving students would be enrolled after personal interview conducted by SYMA Office bearers.  The guidance and professional tuition is being provided free of cost to the students and We seek to uplift those downtrodden by providing quality education.   Come and join us in our movement to serve the Society better.

With regards – Secretary
Srinivas Youngmens Association.
