Protests following Govt’s Decision to Hold Board Exams

Earlier in January 2022, the Haryana State Government had issued a Gazette Notification in which it had expressed intent to hold Board Exams for Class 5 and Class 8 students. The notification states that all schools operating in Haryana will mandatorily have to participate in the HBSE Board Exam for class 5 and Class 8 students. Haryana State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) had appointed Haryana Board of School Education (HBSE) as the nodal agency to hold the exams.

Following this, several parents and school associations held protests sharing their concerns around holding board exams at the state level. Despite protests, the state government went ahead with Class 8 Board Exams from 18th February onwards which was met by widespread street protests by parents on Saturday. Following this, the state government has decided to roll back its decision to hold Haryana Board Exams for Class 5 and Class 8 students.
