He said the government would issue detailed guidelines for calculating the marks for the students.
Recalling the lockdown declared on March 25 last year and the subsequent relaxations announced by the government in view of the corona pandemic, Mr Palaniswami said after the virus spread was brought under control, schools were reopened for Classes 10 and 12 from January 19 this year and the students were given immunity boosters and vitamin tablets.
He said right through the academic year 2020-21, students were attending classes through Kalvi TV and by online mode in view of the pandemic-induced lockdown.
He said taking into account the constraints being faced by the students while learning through online mode, the syllabus were reduced, he said. (UNI)
