TN X standard results ~ SYMA Growth students do well - 2019

Old timers will recall that the First Public Examination for the students used to be at Class XI – those who 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 !! .. recall that in 1977, MK Raman of our school (The Hindu High School, Big Street, Triplicane) secured 407/500 and was State 4th  – photo of him with a beaming smile appeared in newspapers .. .. 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 …

                       Now the education till 5th Standard is Primary and upto X is Secondary .. .. Tamil Nadu Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) or Class 10th exam results have been declared this day.  This SSLC Certificate was a very important document and served as date of birth proof and more for very many years.
I have been posting about our full-time tuition centre SYMA Growth providing quality tuition free to under-privileged children.    SYMA Growth students hand-picked from lower strata of society have done well. The Academic year 2018-19 was  11th  year of SYMA Growth.  Our students did exceeding well in +2 with ‘all pass’ – making us proud.  [15 of them in Science group and 28 in Commerce group]   Our Student Ms Varsha is the topper in Science with 545 out of 600.  4 of them got above 400; 9 students are in the bracket 300-400.  In the Commerce group, the topper is Pugazhenthi 506/600.  6 got more than 400 and 12 above 300. 
o   Tamil Nadu State Board X Standard results have been announced today.  For X we had  Tamil Medium and English medium classes.

o   In + 2 – we had cent % results.  In X our students have performed well too.

o   In English medium out of 24 / 23 have passed (the other one is being checked) – our Growth topper is Ms Harini with 427/500 & Ms Jeevitha secured 418/500.

o   In Tamil medium, (which perhaps represents the poorest of poor in the society) – of 13 students – 12  have passed.  The topper is Ms Afrin Banu with 318/500.

o   SYMA greets them all .. .. 

As you may know now, there is no State level ranking !!! -  State-level ranks will not be released this year as well to ensure that students don’t get disheartened by an unhealthy competition. “We have done away with the ranking system as even one mark will cause serious distress,” said an Official. Students, who have not done well in the exams, should not get too stressed, is the view point.He said that parents, who notice unusual behaviour or sadness in their wards, should use the helpline immediately.  But is that not a disincentive to those who perform well .. .. .. because  KX1 / MI / RCB fail to qualify should we not speak of champions CSK ?

The success of SYMA Growth in uplifting the students from lower echelons of society is fully because of the untiring efforts of teachers of SYMA Growth.    SYMA places on record our profound thanks  to the Management of NK Thirumalachariyar National Boys High School, Mr S. Venkatadri, HM, NKT Boys High School, our beloved teachers of SYMA Growth, Mrs Thara, and the volunteers.  Special appreciations are due to M/s Manpower Group India and Mr PV Venkatesan – for their support in fully-funding this project for the 3rd continuous year.

We would also like to mention the efforts of Mr Durai and Mr TJ Ramani in visiting the facility daily and in the conduct of full-fledged model exams in all subjects.    There are so many of you, who have contributed in the success of Growth and a BIG THANKS to you ALL.
Queue for applications last year !

The next academic year will be our 12th year of Operations and together we will strive to continue to educate the students.  The application forms for the next Academic year at SYMA Growth are scheduled to be issued on Sunday, 5th of May 2019 at NKT National Boys High School @ 09.30 am.

With regards – S. Sampathkumar
