Update 2021 –
Haryana Government confirmed the decision of restarting Class 8th Board in 2021. Students of CBSE and ICSE schools in state have to give the exams.
News Update -The Haryana Govt. has started board in the 8th Class of the state. Due to Covid 19 Outbreak, this rule may not apply in the year 2020. For 2021-2022, 8th will be board class in Haryana. So in this session there may be not board exam for 8th class.
The decision came in to existence following the reports of poor performance of the students at the base levels. Due to this reason no good stuff was available for the higher classes.
The decision to this effect took place in the meeting of high officials of Haryana Education Dept chaired by the Chief Secretary. So far the board exams are only for 10th and 12th classes.
Before 2010 the eighth class students had to undergo the board exam. That’s why the students would be serious about their studies. The standard of the education was not so low as it is today.
But then Right to Education had come in to being which made it mandatory for the govt to make the education necessary for all the students of 14 yrs age group.
Consequently the drop outs who were 14 and without any basic education could get admission in the 8th class straightway. This new policy dulled the system. The system had said that no student up to eighth class must get fail marks.
Why is there need of 8th class Board Exam ?
So this new policy made the mockery of the education. No student could get below fail marks and he/she would be in the next class. When such students reached the 10th or 12th they spoiled the education system and results of the board.
When their knowledge was tested by some NGO, abysmal results came out in the light. They were not able to read the basic sentences what to speak of some really good ones. Some of them even have problem in reading the Hindi sentences.
So there was the need to overhaul this sick system.
The official website of HBSE/ BSEH – https://bseh.org.in/.
Only board exams can not improve the situation, there is the need to improve the whole education system for the radical and fruitful change.
Update 2020 – Haryana CM Mr. M.L. Khattar has announced the board exam for 8th Class for the session 2020-2021 in his 2020 Haryana Budget Speech on 28th of Feb 2020. Also he has said that the students of the state will have the ” Right to Education “. Board will not charge any fee and fund from the students.
