Board Exam in April 2020 was Postponed

TNDTE Result 2020

The Tamil Nadu Directorate of Technical Education (TNDTE) also known as Department of Technical Education (DOTE) is one of the prestigious organisation in the State of Tamil Nadu. Located in the capital city of  Chennai, this organisation is accountable for all technical educations units in the State and is controlled by the Tamil Nadu Education Department.

According to the tentative calendar of events for the academic year 2019-2020, the odd semester practical exams were supposed to begin on March 23, 2020, and the theory exams on April 3 2020. However, the wake of the Corona has urged the government to close all the educational institutions in Tamil Nadu from March 17 and later on, the lockdown has been made nationwide. This has led to a state of uncertainty regarding the exams.

On 16-04-2020, the Tamil Nadu Higher Education Department principal secretary to the government has sent a circular to The Director of Technical Education, Chennai, The Director of Collegiate Education, The Registrars of all Universities under the aegis of Higher Education Department and All Deemed Universities/ Autonomous institutions.

In the wake of COVID-19 outbreak all the universities and colleges under the aegis of Higher Education Department, Tamil Nadu were directed to remain closed from 17-03-2020 to avoid the spread of coronavirus in this State. Now, most of the educational institutions and hostels have been recognised as quarantine centres, in case of emergency or any other contingencies.

In view of the above, you are asked to conduct the semester examinations at the beginning of next academic year, i.e. as and when the colleges reopen and reschedule the semester examinations continuously, without giving breaks in between and if necessary to conduct examinations in two sessions as morning and afternoon. Appropriate arrangements have to be made to publish the final year results at the earliest. The date of reopening of the colleges will be announced later. The educational organisations are advised to instruct their students to prepare for the examinations during this period.


The students need not worry about this pandemic situation and their future. Once everything settles down, they will announce the reopening and exam dates; which we will publish on this site. Until then, stay safe and sound!
