Haryana Class 8 board exams: The Haryana State Administration has landed on the decision to conduct the state board exams for the students of Class 8. Despite several private school bodies rejecting the very idea, the board exams are likely to commence for Class 8 students from the concluding week of March 2022.

Shedding light on the same, the Haryana State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) has clearly stated that Class 8 students studying in government and private schools of the state will have to pass Class 8 board examinations in the written mode. The SCERT added that only after witnessing the satisfactory performance of the students in Class 8 board exams, they will be promoted to Class 9. However, this decision of the SCERT did not go down well with numerous officials from the private school boards and schools affiliated to the ICSE and CISCE board.

In response to the decision, the private schools affiliated with CBSE and CISCE board voiced their concerns to state that holding board exams may be troublesome for Class 8 students, as different boards have different syllabus and teaching pedagogy.

This decision has also drawn flak from the parents of many students. As claimed by the Haryana Progressive Schools' Conference (HPSC), the parents have expressed their dismay on the schools following the pattern of Haryana board, despite their children being admitted to CBSE and CISCE board schools.

As of now, the SCERT and Board of Secondary Education, Haryana (BSEH) are going ahead with the Class 8 board exams in this academic year. Meanwhile, schools have urged the state administration to postpone exams for Class 8 students and implement them from the next academic session.
