Tamilandu Government Plus Two (+2) state board examinations results will be out this week according to a government release. It will determine the fate of more than 3 lakh students in tamilnadu. My aunts daughter mithra is also awaiting results.
As usual students are anxious about the results. Depending on the marks they score in +2 they get seats in higher studies. Usually there will be a competition for engineering and medical seats. This year about sixty thousand engineering applications have been sold and everybody is expected to get a seat.
I think IT/computer engineering is not a favorite among students as it was previous years. As the silicon valley is experiencing job cuts due to global economic recession students fear to take IT courses. Major IT companies in Bangalore, Hyderabad and chennai have laid off workers due to the decrease in profits.
