Every year, the TN board release the district level toppers list details. But, it leads to some unhealthy competition among schools. So the DGE Tamilnadu decided to stop the district level merit student list.

  2. Kanyakumari at 98.17 per cent.
  3. Chennai at 93.86 per cent.

From 2017, 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.
