Students who have passed out of schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) need not worry over the delay in receiving their Plus Two mark statements. They can go ahead and apply for the Tamil Nadu Engineering Admissions (TNEA 2012) and submit the filled-in applications on or before the June 6 deadline along with a printout of their scores downloaded online.
Some CBSE schools in the State had informed students that the Plus Two mark statement would be issued to them only on June 6. This had caused panic among a section of parents and students who were not sure if they could apply for the TNEA as Anna University authorities had insisted that a copy of the marksheet must be enclosed with the application form.
“There is no cause for anxiety,” TNEA Secretary V Rhymend Uthariaraj clarified. “The CBSE students can instead enclose a printout of their marksheet downloaded from the website. Subsequently, when they receive their mark statements and Transfer Certificate, they can send us a photo copy separately,” he told the Express.
Even school heads were not aware as to when they would receive the mark statements. “We do not have information about when the mark statements will be made available. Every year, the declaration of results and issuing of mark statement is being delayed,” said K Navamani, Principal of Angappa CBSE Senior Secondary School in Coimbatore.
“The result for Plus Two students was announced only on May 28. Normally, the mark statement will be issued in a week’s time. We are hoping that the statements will be issued with a couple days,” said R Nallappan, Principal of Kendriya Vidyalaya in Dharmapuri.
State Board students were spared the anxiety as the Directorate of Government Examination in Tamil Nadu had issued the mark statements on May 31 itself.
