Tamil Nadu Half-Yearly Exams 2023 Postponed; New Schedule Announced

In response to the aftermath of Cyclone ‘Michaung,’ the Tamil Nadu government has officially declared the postponement of the half-yearly examinations for state-run and government-aided schools. Initially slated to commence on December 11, Chief Minister M K Stalin directed the deferment across the state to accommodate the recent challenges faced by educational institutions.

The School Education Department swiftly formulated a revised timetable, rescheduling the half-yearly exams for classes 6 to 12 to take place from December 13 to 22. This adjustment aims to provide students and schools with sufficient time to recover from the disruptions caused by the cyclonic weather conditions.

In the wake of Cyclone ‘Michaung,’ schools in Chennai, Chengelpet, Kancheepuram, and Tiruvallur districts had been closed from December 4 to 9. The government allocated a fund of ₹1.90 crore to address the aftermath, focusing on activities such as cleaning school premises affected by heavy rains and flooding in the aforementioned districts.

With schools set to reopen on December 11, the government has scheduled the distribution of textbooks and notebooks on December 12. This initiative is specifically aimed at assisting students who may have lost or damaged their study materials during the adverse weather conditions.

A key factor influencing the decision to postpone the exams is the realization that students cannot adequately prepare without their study materials. Consequently, a collective decision was made to reschedule exams uniformly across all districts, maintaining a common question paper throughout Tamil Nadu.
