About Exam

Exam Brief

The Tripura Board of Secondary Education was established in 1973 by the Tripura Board of Secondary Education Act, 1973, under the Tripura Legislative Assembly. There are two main examinations conducted by the Tripura Board, the Madhyamik Pariksha (10th Class) and the Higher Secondary examinations (10+2).

In essence, the Tripura Board of Secondary Education aims to instill critical thinking, open-mindedness, and flexibility in student learning. As a result, the Board provides students with high-quality education and skills. Tripura Board of Secondary Education prepares the curriculum and syllabus for Class 12 students and is also in charge of conducting the Class 12 board exam.

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Study Plan to Maximise Score

Preparation Tips

A comprehensive study and preparation plan is very crucial to pass the 12th Tripura Board exam. As a result, all students must study all subjects from their respective streams.

If you are from the Science stream, focus on all the important subjects viz. Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics. Don’t lose your confidence if you face any topic or question which seems complicated. Regular and honest practice is the key to mastering mathematical concepts and equations. Make a habit of solving mathematical problems daily and develop tricks and shortcuts to speed up the process. Repetition and revision is the key to success. Remember this mantra.

  • Practice Honest and Consistent Preparation: Board exams test the knowledge and understanding of all the concepts from different subjects. It requires consistent and honest efforts. So, it is recommended that all students should be honest with themselves. Passing the Tripura Class 12 board exams is not that difficult; you can clear it if you study for the exam daily. Be optimistic in your approach and study with confidence. Thorough preparation becomes essential, especially if you are looking to score 90+ marks in the exam. Don’t miss studying on any single day. Make a habit of studying every day. 
  • Be Confident: Nothing is impossible, and if you study with honesty and confidence, you will surely achieve success. The Tripura Board 12th exam will be conducted in March-April, so you have six months of preparation time. There is plenty of time to study all the subjects and revise them thoroughly. Avoid negative thinking and prepare for the exam with a positive mindset.
  • Make Proper Notes for Each Subject: It’s not practical and feasible to go through all the concepts and sections completely at the last moment. That is when revision notes and charts come in handy. When you are studying, make a habit of taking notes. Prepare a quick recall sheet for each subject in which you will list all of the important points. In your notes, you can include important formulas, hints, and important points to help you solve the question paper in the shortest time possible. It will be useful on the day of the exam when you need to take a quick glance over the entire subject.
  • Improve Your Problem-Solving Skill: Solving a question is one thing and solving it in the stipulated time frame is another. You only have a limited amount of time during the exam, so it becomes very important to work on your problem-solving skills. All the students are advised to practice previous year question papers and sample papers to make a habit of solving questions quickly.
  • Don’t Read Unnecessary Things: There is no limit to the amount of learning you can have, but there is a fixed time available for you. Therefore, it is recommended to only focus on important topics and will be asked in the examination. Follow the syllabus religiously and study all the important topics more than once. If you follow a syllabus-based preparation plan, you are guaranteed to pass the exam with flying colours. Don’t fill yourself with useless information that isn’t relevant or important from the exam point of view.


Exam Taking Strategy

Exam preparation is not the only thing to achieve the desired results. While you are in the examination hall battling with the questions paper, it’s equally important to have composure and confidence. These are some of the important points to keep in mind while writing the exam.

  • Don’t spend too much time on a single question. Divide your time properly between all of the questions. It will be disastrous if you spend a lot of time on one question and then the answer turns out to be incorrect.
  • It is advisable to start with the questions that are easier, and you know the answers with surety. Then proceed on to the more difficult ones later. This will not only help you save time but also improve your confidence while answering the questions.
  • Do not answer questions in a rush or hurry. First of all, frame the answers in your mind and then write them down carefully. This way, you will avoid the penalty of providing wrong answers. 
  • For MCQ questions, don’t try guesswork. Try to solve the question first and if you are able to solve it, then give the correct answer.
  • If time permits, revisit all the questions and see if the answers you have provided are correct.

Detailed Study plan

You will find it easy to pass the board exams with flying colours if you have the right books and study materials with you. You will need to prepare for this exam with continuous hard work to get excellent marks. You’ll also need a smart and detailed study plan. Create a comprehensive routine and follow that honestly daily. 

Stick to a smart and strict schedule. Do not rely on cramming. Learn all the fundamentals first, and then you can go on to more detailed planning. You may give the best shot for Tripura 12th board exam preparation by following a well-defined study plan and putting in honest and consistent efforts.

Subject-Wise Study Plan

There are five subjects in every stream that you can opt for in the Tripura board Class 12 examination. English and Bengali are two compulsory subjects, while you have the option to choose the remaining three.

Preparation Tips For Mathematics

Mathematics is all about practice and practice. Hence you must devise a well-thought-out strategy and study plan. Keep in mind the following points to prepare for the basic questions that will be asked in the exam:

  • Revise Text Books: Practice both Board books and NCERT books.
  • Practice Mock Tests: In addition to studying the textbooks, go through the previous year papers in order to succeed in the exam. Mock tests and practice questions are available for free on Embibe. To pass the board exam with good marks, sign up on Embibe and start practicing.
  • Sample Papers: TBSE releases sample papers prior to the exam. It helps students get an idea of the type of questions asked along with the marks distribution and the total number of questions.
  • All Questions Must Be Attempted: Since there is no negative marking in the exam, all questions must be attempted.

Preparation Tips For Physics

  • Physics is a subject that requires a lot of problem-solving. You should focus more on formulas and numerically based on those formulas. Go through any guidebook and memorize all the formulas and important tricks. Don’t just solve problems; understand them as well. This will help you solve similar problems that will be asked in the exam.
  • Make a habit of solving questions daily.
  • Go through the previous year’s questions and see the type of questions that have been asked in the exam.
  • Always make your own notes and cheat sheet for quick reference in the final days before the exam.
  • Time management is equally crucial for preparation. While taking mock tests, keep an eye on the timer as you can’t afford to waste your time.

Preparation Tips For Chemistry

  • Chemistry is all about reactions, chemical equations and remembering chemical formulas. So it is necessary to go through these things in detail.
  • Like other subjects, refer to the Government textbooks to start your preparation and also refer to other reference books to understand the concepts better.
  • Make a chart listing all the important chemical formulas and reactions. There are more than 30 important chemical reactions, so memorise them and revise regularly. 
  • Balancing reactions is an important part of chemistry preparation, so make a habit of writing chemical equations daily.
  • To prepare for the Science portion, join online study groups.
  • There will be questions about unit conversion and the fundamentals of cell development.
  • There aren’t many Chemistry questions.

Preparation Tips For Biology

  • Biology is a subject that requires plenty of things to memorise. Hence, it is advisable to prepare for Biology in the mornings since that is the best time for memorisation.
  • You will need to draw diagrams and figures in Biology a lot, so start practising diagrams. 
  • Go through important topics and make your own notes which will come in handy during the final days of the examination.
  • Make careful observations on the labelling of diagrams and figures since wrong labelling is not going to get you full marks for any question. 
  • MCQs are an important part of Biology, so practise these questions as well regularly.

Preparation Tips for English

  • To get good marks in English, you must study the subject regularly. There are different sections in English, and you will have to plan your study accordingly.
  • The questions asked in the exam are not very difficult, so with consistent efforts, you are sure to get excellent marks in English.
  • Put extra focus on the Grammar section as it can become a little tricky.
  • In the Reading section, make a habit of reading the composition thoroughly before you start answering.

Preparation Tips for Bengali

  • Since Bengali is the mother tongue for the students of Tripura, it is considered one of the easiest subjects to practise and get good marks in. 
  • Similar to English, there are different sections in Bengali for which you will need to practise individually. 
  • In the Bengali language, you will need to focus more on the Grammar part since that is considered the most difficult part by many students.
  • When you are answering the Reading section, keep an eye on the timer as you may spend extra time on that section, and you won’t have sufficient time to work on other sections.

Preparation Tips for Arts Subjects

Students from the Arts stream have the option to choose from Geography, History, Civics, Economics, Psychology, Political Science, Sociology, among many others. If you are an Arts student, start your preparation with Government text books. You can download all the standard books prescribed by the Tripura Board from Embibe. Here are some of the best tips and suggestions to get full marks in these subjects.

  • Dedicate time to each subject. Don’t miss out on any subject because each carries equal marks.
  • For History, while you are preparing for the exam, make a habit of taking notes and creating cheat sheets containing important dates and events. This will help you revise all the important topics a few days before the examination.
  • When you are memorising answers, make a habit of writing those down. Doing this will help you remember the answers easily and for a long time.
  • For subjects like Political Science and Sociology, it will be very helpful if you refer to Government textbooks and also NCERT textbooks because all the concepts are explained in detail and in a lucid and easy-to-understand way.

Preparation Tips for Commerce Subjects

Students from the Commerce stream have the option to choose from Economics, Accountancy, Business Studies, and Entrepreneurship. You will need a separate study plan for all these subjects. For all these subjects, it is advisable to refer to Government textbooks because they strictly follow the Tripura Board syllabus for Class 12. You can also study from other reference books to get a deeper understanding of concepts that are not very clear. Here are some of the best tips and suggestions for you to follow:

  • Make a strict and feasible study timetable that you can follow. Don’t create an impractical routine because that will only waste your time.
  • In the Accountancy subject, you will need to solve numerical problems based on the formulas. So make a list of all the important formulas and memorise them.
  • For Business Studies, you will need to prepare answers in a descriptive manner. So start preparing for long answers and questions and try to write those in your own words.
  • For Economics, refer to Government textbooks and prepare notes and cheat sheets.
