In W.P. No. 19834/2007 filed by one Selvan A. Mohammed Wasif , the High Court, Madras has issued the following directions on 9-6-2007:-
(a) Admission of a student from class X to class XI within the same school should not be treated as a fresh admission but only as continuation of the original admission done in that school. So issuing transfer certificate to class X students within the same school and readmitting them to class XI is against the rules.
(b) All the students of the same school who have qualified in class X Board Examination should be offered admission in Class XI as far as possible subject to the availability of seats. The schools may consider students from other schools for admission after accommodating the students of their own school.
(c) No admission test should be conducted by schools for their own students. After admitting their own students if there are still vacancies, they may be filled either on the basis of the Class X Board Examinations or by conducting an admission test for the students who are from other schools.
(d) No school should prescribe any cut-off marks for admission to class XI or for allotment of subjects.
2. With a view to implement the directions of the High Court, Madras, the Government direct the Director of School Education / Director of Matriculation School, Chennai to communicate these orders forthwith to all the Higher Secondary Schools in Tamil Nadu for strict compliance.
