Tripura Government has cancelled the Tripura board exams 2021 for class 10 and 12 due to the rise in COVID-19 cases. The decision was announced by Education Minister Ratan Nath in view of the health and safety of over 73000 students registered for the board exam.
“Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) and the department have decided to cancel Class 10 and 12 exam 2021 due to rise in the Covid-19 situation.

The state board examinations for the year 2021 were scheduled to begin on May 18 but were postponed due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in India.

He said that students who are not satisfied with the evaluation will be given an opportunity to appear in the examination if the situation improves.
Many states have cancelled their respective Class 12 board exams amid the COVID-19 situation in India.
