Villupuram Collector reviews Plus-Two exam preparedness

Special Correspondent

“Basic amenities will be provided at all 84 centres”

VILLUPURAM: Since the public examinations for Plus-Two students are a turning point in their career, all arrangements have been made for the smooth conduct of the examinations, according to R.Palanisamy, Collector.

After reviewing the preparedness for the examinations with officials and teachers here, the Collector told reporters that adequate water supply and basic amenities would be provided at all 84 examination centres - 44 in Villupuram education district and 40 in Tindivanam education district.

A total number of 31,191 candidates, including 15,879 boys and 15,312 girls, would sit for the examinations to be held from March 2 to 25. If outside elements cause disturbance, police's help could be sought, he said.

The Collector called upon parents and guardians to ensure that their wards keep good health throughout the course of the examinations by taking easily digestible nutritious food and rest.

They should also ensure that their wards turn up at the examination centres punctually and return home in time. The Collector further said that question papers would be stored at eight places in the district with police protection.

Depending upon the previous incidents, 15 examination centres in the district had been identified as problematic and, therefore, adequate security would be provided at those places.

Invigilators and students were prohibited from carrying mobile phones into the examination hall. A total number of 2,147 officials of the Education Department and teachers would be put on supervision. Besides, 14 flying squads, headed by the Chief Educational Officer and the District Education Officer, would be doing the rounds.

If any candidate is found copying, he or she would be barred from writing examinations for an year. Those copying from answer sheets of other students would be debarred for two years, and those indulging in objectionable behaviour either during the examination or while leaving the hall would be permanently barred from taking the qualifying examinations.

If any malpractice is noticed during inspection, disciplinary action would be taken against the headmaster or headmistress concerned. Those who were caught for malpractices should be retained in the hall till the examinations get over.

The Collector categorically said that invigilators should not publicise the names of erring students because if the nature of their mistake does not warrant any penal action, they could be allowed to appear for the examination the next day.
