In view of the Covid19 situation in the state, the Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) has postponed the Class 10 and 12 examinations.

The news has been confirmed by Tripura higher and school education minister Ratan Lal Nath.

Nath has urged the candidates to get prepared for the examinations which will be held after the situation becomes “fruitful”.

“As per decision of TBSE the board examinations of class X & XII has been postponed for the time being until further notice. My message to all the students to be prepared for the examination as when the situation will be fruitful the examination will be conducted,” minister Nath tweeted.

The decision to postpone the Madhyamik and Higher Secondary Second Year Final examinations was taken during a meeting of the examination committee of the Tripura Board of Secondary Education held on Saturday.

It was well presumed that such a decision might come up as the school-level examinations were postponed earlier.

Even the examinations of the colleges and universities of the state were also postponed as the second wave of the dreaded infection hit Tripura.

“Looking in the uprising situation of COV1D-I9 pandemic all over the country, as well as in our state and also taking into account the safety and health of the students, it will not be judicious to hold ensuing H.S.(+2 Stage) and Madhyamik Examination w.e.f. May 18 and May 19, 2021 respectively,” a press statement issued by the TBSE said.

“The Examination Committee recommends to postpone these examinations for the time being and propose to hold the examination when the situation will be conducive with two weeks’ notice,” it added.

Board president Bhabatosh Saha said the students would get some time to study well and keep at bay the infection by not venturing out unnecessarily.

“Members advise all candidates to utilize this period to get prepared more competently. This is for information of all concerned teachers, students and guardians associated with Madhyamik and H.S. ( +2 Stage) Examination 2021,” the press statement issued by the TBSE secretary further said.
