NEW DELHI -- If you want to give your child a great education, head south. At least that's what data aggregated from the marks scored by this year's class 12 students seems to suggest. A Times of India report exclusively released the results of a survey that showed schools in Tamil Nadu doing exceptionally well on this count, along with several other schools in southern India.

"Their schools may have higher number of students scoring 95% and above, but the overall average is an indicator of how the whole batch has performed."
