Agartala: Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) on Saturday cancelled Madhyamik and Higher Secondary examination for this year.
The exams were scheduled to begin from May 18 last but postponed due to the surge of Covid-19 in the state.
Meanwhile, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and several state boards have already cancelled the exams, which has piled up pressure on TBSE to decide the modalities for promoting them.
The state government had constituted an expert committee with academicians, top officials, health experts and psychologists to deal with over 47000 candidates for board exams.
The committee had held a meeting early this week and opined not to hold the exams considering the threat of spreading infections.
Besides, the Tripura government has also held opinion polls of the guardians in the digital platform seeking their advice and over 85 per cent of respondents opposed holding the exams, said education
minister Ratan Lal Nath.
He said that TBSE will declare the result of both the exams by July 31 devising a standard method in consultation with the experts.
However, if any candidate is not satisfied with the score, he or she can write the exams when Covid situation will improve and life becomes normal, as per the opinion of the Supreme Court, Nath added.
