This year, students will not be ranked on state and district level as it is said to have promoted an unhealthy competition among schools and students.

"Examinations and marks are incidental in the journey of education and are not the ultimate destination. While exams are a good method to assess the competitive spirit of students within the classroom, we saw that over the last few years, it is being misused and has led to a lot of concerns," The Hindu quoted school education secretary T Udhayachandran as saying.

The Tamil Nadu School Education Department announced the results of the Class 12 board exams on May 12. The Class 12 exams for Arts, Science and Commerce stream were conducted in March.
