VIRUDHUNAGAR : School Education Department officials in the district are planning to prepare Plus Two students for the board exams by getting their doubts clarified from their houses through experienced teachers, who would appear in live programmes on the local TV channels.

When contacted, Chief Education Officer (CEO) of Virudhunagar district A Pugazhendi said as the board examinations were nearing, students studying at home tend to get lots of doubts in their lessons, which they would not have been clarified in the school.

“To help the students clarify their doubts from their houses, we are planning to hold live programmes through the local TV channels. Experienced teachers for all the subjects in Plus Two will be participating in the programmes. The teachers will discuss important and frequently asked questions during the programme and students in the district could call the number appearing on their TV screen to ask and clarify their doubts,” explained Pugazhendi.

Moreover, as the students get to clarify their doubts from their houses, their parents, who might be watching the programme too, would also be able to help their wards in their studies, Pugazhendi further said.

The officials were also planning to organise live TV programmes and special classes to the toppers even for the Class X students in the district, Pugazhendi added.

It is worth mentioning that Virudhunagar district had secured highest percentage in the Plus Two examinations since 1986. But in 2013-14, the district was pushed to the third place with a pass percentage of 96.12. During 2014-15, the district regained top slot with a pass percentage of 97.46.
