At JNV Tamenglong examination centre for Tamenglong block, as many as 250 of 355 registered candidates appeared.
At Tengkonjang Higher Secondary School in Noney as many as 168 students of 276 total registration for Noney district appeared.

At Langmei Higher Secondary School in Tamei for Tamei block, less candidates turned out with 51 students of 121 registered candidates.
The registration and attendance from Tamei block are comparatively low every year; perhaps due to lack of awareness about the facilities being offered in Jawahar Navodaya vidyalaya Tamenglong, as per sources.
