A total of 83.68% students have passed the higher secondary examinations of Science stream conducted by Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE), the results of which were declared on Saturday.

A total 3377 candidates from Science stream had appeared in the higher secondary exam, out of which 2826 candidates passed.

The previous year, 2702 candidates out of 3319 candidates from Science stream had passed the exam. The pass percentage of Science Stream was 81.41%.

“The TBSE has declared the result of Science stream first like other state boards eyeing the students’ convenience to appear for national-level entrance exams to pursue higher studies. Results of Commerce and Humanities are expected to be released shortly,” TBSE president professor Mihir Deb told reporters at the board’s office after announcing the results.

The results are now available in tbse.in and tripuraresults.nic.in.

“Students, who are eager to apply for review of answer sheets, need to apply in prescribed review forms by the coming five days through their respective school headmasters. Review forms would be made available to schools along with the marksheets. Students could apply for reviewing at least three papers. Each paper would charge Rs 130. Review results would be hopefully published in the next month,” Deb said.

He also said shortage of examiners was the main reason why the board could not declare results as quickly as other state boards. Nearly 600 board examiners - 200 were for higher secondary and 400 for Madhyamik failed to report on time, Deb said.

“I had written to the government about the issue. If this persists in future, quick release of results will be a great problem,” the TBSE chief said.
