TN +2 results out ~ SYMA Growth students perform moderately well.

Our student B Karthika has done us proud securing 1154/ 1200 – Business Maths 200;  Accountancy 199; Commerce 197 & Economics 193.. .. ..

SYMA [Srinivas Youngmen’s Association]  has been in the field of Social service since 1977 ~  in the past few years, our initiative in the field of Education ‘SYMA Growth’ has been prospering.  SYMA Growth – a fullfledged tuition centre, is our  cherished  initiative in educating the economically poor children, uplifting their standards and making them responsible citizens.   In realising our unsaturated desire for improving the society, there is need for shaping the children and inculcating in them the good qualities, making them responsible citizens.

In this beautiful World, most students are frightened to face the Public examinations.  SYMA’s vision is  to provide good quality education training free of cost  for those students who suffer for want of opportunities.  On 6th July 2008,  Mr.R Sekar, IPS, Commissioner of Police launched our Tuition Centre ‘Growth’  and a right beginning was made.  Every year since, we have been tasting grand success with very good results.
The classes for the present academic year started  in June 2016 after our initial screening ensuring that the most deserving were selected on economic criteria.  The Centre is run on all days from 6-8 pm in the evening and on Sundays @ 10-12 am and has  +2 Commerce, + Science Group; X standard – Tamil and X Std English medium – each having around 30 students. 

There are anxious moments in life ~ the day when results are announced is one of that. In earlier days, SSLC was a great landmark and results used to be published in Newspapers.  In fact, local dailies would run a special supplement and finding one’s number in the paper would give the student the greatest joy.  The SYMA administrators re-live that anxiety these days when the results of +2 / X are announced, as we care so much  for the future of our students from SYMA Growth.

Today, +2 results have been announced in the State.  In what is percieved as the first of many changes that is to come in Tamil Nadu's education system, the education department has said that the first three ranks in the state board exams will not be announced. Normally, the department announces names of three rank holders.  This announcement came  on a day when a panel is meeting in Chennai to discuss the necessary reforms in education in the state.

For those who do not know, the structure of education in TN State is based on the national level pattern with 12 years of schooling (10+2+3), consisting of eight years of elementary education, that is, five years of primary and three years of middle school education for the age groups of 6-11 and 11–14 years, respectively, followed by secondary and higher Secondary education of two years each besides two years of pre-primary education. The entry age in class 1 is 5+. Prior to 1980s it was : 11 + PUC + Degree.

For the first time in the history of Tamil Nadu a transgender candidate cleared class 12 state board exams, the results of which were announced today.   The state saw an overall spike in the pass percentage from 91.4 last year to 92 this year. Among the districts, as usual, Virudhunagar topped the list with 97.85% students passing the exam.   A total of 8,93,262 students took the exam in March this year and 8,22,838 cleared it.

At our Tuition Centre – SYMA Growth – 9th year of operations, the results have been a mixed bag.  School topper from Growth has secured 1154 out of 1200, a Himalayan achievement indeed. Overall, 6 students got more than 1000.  The results are to be viewed in the background that these students hail from very poor economic background, with parents mostly having no education and the atmosphere is also not conducive for studying.  Some have performed well; yet it would have given us more happiness if all of them had passed.  In Science group 2 students failed and in Commerce 4 failed out of 24. 

No words can describe our gratitude to the management of NK Thirumalachariar Educational Trust and NKT Boys Higher School.  We thank the NKT Management for providing us the infrastructure and all the support.  We thank  the Head master of the School Mr S Venkatadri.  We pray to Almighty for continued success of this project 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 must place on record our thanks and gratitude to those teachers who taught these students with great dedication, commitment and devotion.  Our Coordinator Mrs Thara and the team who assisted her also deserve special appreciation. .  A Big Thank you to all of you  who have been supporting us in all our endeavours.

Together We will strive to make the society better place for all of us. ~ and very very special thanks to M/s Experis IT and Manpower Inc for their sponsorship.  Gratitude is due to  Mr PV Venkatesan of Manpower also.

SYMA rededicates itself and marches on in the 10th year of the Operations striving to ensure that students from lower echelons of the Society are provided quality educational support, free of cost.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar
