The Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) will conduct classes 10 and 12 final examinations from May 10.
“We have taken decision to hold classes 10 and 12 board examinations from May 10 and it is expected to conclude on June 7,” TBSE chairman Bhabatosh Saha told reporters in Agartala on Monday.
Saha said the board has expected that the examination routines would be published this week.
He added that there would be two sets of question papers with odd and even numbers for the examinees this year.
Students with odd roll numbers would get the odd set of question papers and those who have an even roll number, would be given an even set of question papers.
For the secondary examinees, the theory paper would be set with 80 marks while the rest 20 marks would be sourced from 5 marks each of weekly tests and internal projects or assignments and the rest 10 marks would come from pre-board examinations.
The class 12 examinees would appear for theory examinations of 70 marks while the rest 30 marks would be included of 20 marks from actual experiments, 5 marks each from the practical notebook and pre-board examinations.
The pass mark for each subject would be 33 instead of 30 for the examinees who would appear for the new syllabus and for the old syllabus pattern, the pass mark would remain 30.
Saha said that from this year on, the board has decided to introduce a sixth elective subject for the class 10 students where they can choose a language or non-language subject
