'Protesting teachers announced that they will completely abstain from work from April 24, if their demands are not met. More than two million students from Class X to XII sat the board exams this year, and a total of 74 evaluation camps have been set up,' reported the Times of India.
Last year, DGE Tamil Nadu had declared the results in May 2017. In order to reduce the stress that usually students go through, the Board had decided not to release the topper's list. 'CBSE is already following this, and why because other students who get even one mark less (than the rank holders) face severe stress. The practice of announcing the first three rank holders at the state and district level is being done away with,' School Education Minister KA Sengottaiyan had said.
