Under-aged Boy Allowed To Write TN SSLC Board Exam

The School Education Department was ordered to issue hall ticket to an under-aged boy to write his board exams by the Madras HC Bench. The decision was taken after a petition was filled seeking permission to allow a 14 year-old boy who was forbidden to take exams stating that he was under-aged.

C Arivanantha Bharathi, a class X student in a private school at Parthibanoor in Ramanathapuram, along with his father Chandrasekar, approached the court stating that he is studying in Tamil medium and the School Education Department recognised his school.
The class X board examinations will commence from 26th March, 2014. The school refused to take the examination fee from Arivanantha Bharathi. Further, all students of class X received their hall tickets from the Government Examinations except Arivanantha Bharathi.

When the student inquired about the issue at the school, he was told that he will not be given his hall ticket by the School Education Department as he was under-aged (below 15 years) and is not eligible to write the exam as he does not satisfy the age criteria to appear for the SSLC board exams. The student then approached the court aggrieved by the way things were turning out. He contended that he is studying in the school since VI standard and that the school have collected entire fees as well.
