April 18 led to protests by students, parents, students’ organisations and political parties in the state.

The TSBIE, which faced flak over the alleged bungling, has said 1137 candidates of the 3.8 lakh students,
whose answer scripts were reverified after they failed in the exams in March, were declared passed.
