According to The Hindu, the overall pass percentage stood at 94.4 percent, which is 0.8 percent higher than the previous year. This also makes it the highest pass percentage recorded in the past five years. Nearly 9.82 lakh students appeared for examinations out of which, 4.91 lakh were girls and 4.9 lakh were boys. Following a pattern set by other states, the Tamil Nadu government has also done away with declaring ranks this year. It is doing so to promote "healthy competition", government officials had said last week.

This year too, 61,115 students managed to get a perfect score of 100 percent in social science, whereas 13,759 students managed to achieve full marks in mathematics and 17,481 students in science, although the number of centums dropped from previous year.

In 2016, 6.5 lakh students had appeared for SSLC examinations out of which 92.9 percent students were successful.
