Agartala, December 26: The Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) has announced the dates for the 2024 Higher Secondary and Secondary examinations. The Madhyamik (Class 10) exam will start on March 02 and the Class 12 exam will start from March 01, according to the TBSE president Dr. Dhananjay Gon Chowdhury in a press conference here on Tuesday.
The Madhyamik exam will end on March 23 and the Higher Madhyamik exam will end on March 30. The first day exam for both classes will be English. Dr. Chowdhury said that the number of candidates has decreased this year due to the implementation of the Vidyajyoti scheme, which provides free education to students from economically weaker sections. The estimated number of Madhyamik students is 38,538 and the estimated number of Higher Madhyamik students is 27,608, which is 10,000 less than last year.
The TBSE has also released the details of the exam centers and venues for both classes. There are 69 centers and 144 venues for the Madhyamik exam and 60 centers and 98 venues for the Higher Madhyamik exam. The exams will be conducted in eight districts of the state: Dhalai, Gomati, Khowai, North Tripura, Sepahijala, South Tripura, Unakoti and West Tripura. The number of schools, centers and venues in each district varies according to the number of candidates.
