That is 11th and 12 th in some states. Full name is Intermediate. And the college is known as Junior College. It is not for the lack of knowledge that the term is used, though people outside the state may not be aware of it. May be the name was indicative of that phase between school and college.

Board of Intermediate Education is the name of the institution which governs in AP.

Saw this at a Pay & Park in Cochin.
In Malayalam he says that they are not responsible for any damages caused to the vehicles whereas in English it became "repairing caused"

I wish I knew parking places where cars got unexpectedly repaired!

But my wife always says "under repair," when she means "broken," so this mistranslation must be common?

Well, then (mis)understand this:

"My car got repaired/car is under repair(same as your Missus says)". (read in Chennai accent!)

This, is quite common in TN, which implies, the car is broken!
