Agartala: Four days after the Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) announced the results of the Secondary (Class 10) and Higher Secondary (Class 12) examinations, Tripura government has directed the board to review the results following widespread protests by students who failed to clear the exams this year.
Speaking with reporters on Thursday, education minister Ratan Lal Nath said that the results of those students who are dissatisfied with their performances in some schools would be reviewed by the board.
He claimed that there would be a permanent solution to the problems that have arisen in the last few days with the secondary and higher secondary results.
“The school authorities had sent the numbers of the examinees. On the basis of those numbers, the experts’ committee had evaluated the candidates for secondary and higher secondary exams. The board announced the results on the basis of that assessment. However, since the results were announced, there has been sporadic discontent in some parts of the state,” Nath said.
He said that the education department has directed the board to review the results to find out the mistakes.
“We have asked to find out the mistakes and take necessary action. We do not believe in the movement. The BJP-IPFT alliance government took action as soon as the allegation of error was raised. So, there is no need for any movement. Soon all the problems will be solved,” Nath added.
The education minister further said that the Tripura Board of Secondary Education will hold a meeting with the experts’ committee on Thursday.
“The board will find a solution in consultation with the school authorities. The entire process of reviewing the results would take a maximum of one week,” Nath said.
The education minister has requested those who are still dissatisfied with the results to sit for the exams.
Since the announcement of the results of secondary and higher secondary exams, protests led by NSUI state vice-president Samrat Roy have created unrest across the state.
An official from TBSE said that the candidates who did not get minimum 10 marks in the school examination have started the agitation. Most of the agitating candidates have been vocal in demanding that they have been unfairly failed.
Despite COVID-19 restrictions, a large numbers of students took to the streets on Tuesday and Wednesday. Attempts were made to convince them, but on the contrary, they behaved violently. However, the police dealt with the situation with utmost patience.
The education minister said that after the announcement of the results in West Bengal, a review was done to find out the mistakes.
