Agartala: Feb 03: In an effort to streamline the evaluation process, the Tripura Board of Secondary Education has issued a directive to students appearing for the Madhyamik and Higher Secondary examinations. The board emphasizes the importance of writing answers in the conventional Bengali and Kokborok scripts, rather than using the Roman script.
Dr. Dhananjay Gan Chowdhury, President of the Tripura Board of Secondary Education, dismissed claims that writing answer sheets in Roman script could lead to legal repercussions. He labeled such assertions as completely false and baseless. Dr. Chowdhury clarified that a recent meeting with examination center officers focused on discussing rules and regulations for the upcoming exams.
As part of maintaining order during the examination period, officers have been instructed to inform the nearest police stations by letter. Additionally, security guards will be deployed at each examination center on the day of the exams. The move aims to ensure a smooth and peaceful examination environment.
While acknowledging the challenges in evaluating answer sheets written in Roman script, Dr. Chowdhury urged all students to adhere to the prescribed Bengali and Kokborok scripts. By doing so, the board aims to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of the evaluation process. Dr. Chowdhury’s assertion that claims of lawsuits related to Roman script usage are unfounded underscores the board’s commitment to fair and transparent assessments1.
