Children from Grade 1 to Grade 10 took the tests. Students, in addition to Tamil Language, had a choice of Hinduism, Christianity or Roman Catholism as electives in religion.

More than 300 volunteer teachers administered the tests in 37 different test centers, organizers said.

Officials said that an Test-center Director, Examinations Supervisor, assistant invigilators and Administrator for the Question, Answer sheets were appointed for each test center. The examination officers had a joint session in April when they were given test instructions, according to TES officials.
