Haryana CM Khattar


The Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar, has said that the state board examinations for classes 5 and 8 in Haryana schools have been deferred for the next session. He said, “In wake of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, studies were affected. Thus, we have decided to defer the board examinations for class 5th and 8th for the current session. The board examinations shall be held next year. For the current session, schools have been asked to conduct the examinations at their own level.”

He further elaborated, “To discuss the issue of whether to hold board examinations for these two classes, a meeting is scheduled to be held on February 25. We have decided not to hold state board examinations for these two classes, for the current session.”

The board of School Education Haryana had recommended conducting board examinations for grades 5 and 8 in all government and private schools in Haryana in October 2021. The government had issued a notification and appointed Haryana’s SCERT as the “Academic Authority” for conducting Class 5 and 8 examinations.
