#GoodNews: Father-Daughter Duo Clears Class 10 Board Exam Together

A 46-year old man and his daughter in Puducherry have cleared the SSLC (Class X) public examination together, results of which were released Monday, 29 April.

Subramanian, a field inspector in the Public Works Department possessed a pass certificate, testifying to his being a Standard VII candidate, when he joined duty on compassionate grounds a few years ago.

He appeared for the ESLC examination (Class VIII) as a private candidate in 2017 for want of necessary qualification to get promotion.

After finishing the ESLC test, Subramanian appeared privately for the SSLC last year, official sources said Tuesday.

However, he failed in three subjects including Mathematics.


Again, he made an unsuccessful attempt in the supplementary examination under compartmental system last year.

In March this year, he appeared for three subjects and emerged as a successful candidate.

His daughter, Thirigunaa, who also appeared for the SSLC examination this year, passed the examination.

Subramanian and his daughter were jubilant about their feat.
