This year, the board has recorded a pass percentage of 80.62 per cent for Madhyamik exams. A total of 39,987 candidates registered themselves in regular mode for the Madhyamik examinations this year while 5060 registered as continuing candidates, 1341 were registered as compartmental candidates and 212 as external candidates from 1066 schools in eight districts.
As per statistics provided by the TBSE, 426 schools have achieved 100 percent pass rate and Gomati district in southern part of Tripura has achieved the highest pass rate among 8 districts as per the board’s provisional grading formula.
The board examinations were suspended this year on May 1 and later cancelled on May 16 due to ongoing pandemic situation.
An expert committee was later formed on June 21 comprising statisticians, professors and school teachers on board to formulate a method of awarding marks for this year’s board examination.
“We received marks from all schools according to this formula. However, we found some problems with the marking system; these were later corrected by the expert committee. We shall announce the results on Saturday. Marksheets would be provided at a latter date which we haven’t fixed yet”, the TBSE chief said.
Unlike other years, the state education board would not be publishing any merit list this year. A total of 46,613 candidates registered themselves for the Madhyamik examination this year while 27,205 candidates were registered for their Higher Secondary examinations.
As many as 98 candidates had registered for the Madrasa Alim examination; 25 had registered for the senior secondary level Madrasa Fazil examination.
While the board results have covered almost all candidates who registered for the exams this year, 56 candidates including those who applied for improvement. Their results would be announced after a separate examination after COVID pandemic situation returns to normal.
Any candidate who feels unhappy with marks awarded in the current formula would have to appear for a separate examination, which is likely to be held in the first week of September.
