Tripura Board to Announce Class 10 and 12 Results by May End Amid Kokborok Script Controversy

The Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) is set to announce the results of Class 10 and 12 board examinations by the last week of May 2024. Candidates who appeared for the exams will be able to check their results on the official website, tbse.tripura.gov.in.

This year, around 33,000 students appeared for the Madhyamik (Class 10) exams, while 23,000 students took the Higher Secondary (Class 12) exams. The TBSE conducted the Class 12 examinations from March 1 to 30 and the Class 10 examinations from March 2 to 23.

Why this matters: The controversy over the Kokborok script choice highlights the ongoing struggle for linguistic and cultural identity in Tripura, with implications for education policy and ethnic relations in the state. The resolution of this issue will have a lasting impact on the education system and social fabric of Tripura.

The evaluation of answer scripts for both Class 10 and 12 has been completed, according to TBSE President Dhananjoy Ganchowdhury. The post-evaluation processes are currently underway, with the results expected to be announced by the last week of May. "Evaluation of answer scripts of both Class 10 and 12 was already done. Now, post-evaluation processes are going on. We expect to announce board results by the last week of May," stated Ganchowdhury.

This year's exams were marred by controversy over the Kokborok language script. Initially, exam officials mandated the use of only Bengali script for writing the Kokborok paper, sparking widespread protests. Later, students were allowed to take the exam in the language of their choice.

The issue sparked a political and ethnic storm, with the then prime opposition party TIPRA Motha threatening to stall normal life in the state if both Roman and Bengali scripts weren't allowed for the Kokborok exams. After an indefinite strike across the state and four U-turns, the board finally announced that it would allow both scripts, citing a lack of sufficient qualified evaluators for the Roman script as the initial reason for the restriction.

To pass the TBSE exams, students must secure a minimum of 30 marks in each subject and 150 marks in total aggregate. In case of failure in one or two subjects but attaining 150 marks in aggregate, students will need to sit for supplementary exams. If a student fails the Tripura board result, they will be required to take a compartment exam the following year for all subjects.

The Tripura Board 10th and 12th Results scorecard will include the student's name, roll number, category, subject-wise marks, grade, and qualifying status. Students can check their results on the official websites attripuraresults.nic.in and tbse.tripura.gov.in using their login credentials. In 2023, the Tripura board Class 10 exams recorded an overall pass percentage of 86.02%, while Class 12 witnessed a pass percentage of 96.08%.
