Bengaluru: The Department of Public Instruction issued an order stating that all schools in the State are required to start holding annual exams for students in Classes 5 and 8 as of the ongoing academic year.

According to the order, the decision was made as it had become more difficult to assess students’ overall performance as part of the ongoing Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) system for students in classes 1 to 9.

Education Minister B. C. Nagesh said that the exams for students in classes 5 and 8 have been announced to improve the children’ capacity for learning. Children are scared while writing the SSLC exams as they lack confidence and are not competent. Children who take exams under the new system would do so in a manner similar to those who take exams under the CBSE or ICSE syllabus.

The Minister said the details of who will evaluate the question paper and whether it would take place at the school, taluk, or state level were still being finalised. The syllabus for exam evaluation will be from November to February and will be of 50 marks.
