Earlier, the minister had said that TN class 12 results would be released in the first week of July. The minister has, however, said the results can be expected by the second week of July.
Around 34,000 class 12 students still have to appear for a pending examination. Of total 34,000 students, 718 have expressed their willingness to take the exam, he said. There was some issue regarding assessment of both these groups of students, he added.
He also said that conducting exams and bringing these students to exam centres will be a challenging task for the government in view of extended lockdown.
Minister further informed that the schools will be reopened after the pandemic is over in the state.
