Board Exams likely to be introduced for Class 5th and 8th

The Central Advisory Board of Education and all the states reached to a consensus that Board exams would get re-introduced in the 5th and 8th standard in a meeting that was held recently in New Delhi.

The proposal of bringing back the board exams for classes 5th and 8th was sent to the Union ministry for approval after it was proposed by the Madhya Pradesh state advisory council.

Board Exams may be introduced for Class 5 and 8


The decision has been taken after observing the declining performance in their academics by the students. Since the students are not taking the exams seriously now the board exams have been made optional.

In addition to this, chances of automatic promotion up to class 8 under the UPA-era no-detention policy likely to be eliminated. It was the first meeting held in this regard after the NDA government came to power.

The school education minister Paras Jain was also present in the meeting which was headed by Smriti Irani, the Union Minister of Human Resource Development.

Once the consent is taken at the meeting of Central Advisory Board of Education the Board exams will be restarted in all the states from next academic year.
