The Karnataka High Court has upheld the state government’s decision to hold board exams for students in Classes 5, 8, 9, and 11. This decision comes after a division bench permitted the government to proceed with the examination process.

Following this ruling, the Karnataka State Education Assessment Board (KSEEB) has announced that the remaining subjects’ exams for Classes 5, 8, and 9 will take place from March 25 onwards.

The division bench, comprising Justice K Somashekar and Justice Rajesh Rai K, decided after considering appeals from the government against a previous verdict. The decision of the government to conduct exams has been challenged by a single judge’s ruling.

Moreover, the court directed the government to consult stakeholders before announcing assessments for future academic years.

Advocates representing various parties shared their perspectives on the matter. A Velan, representing the RTE Students and Parents’ Association, emphasized the importance of consulting parents, teachers, and schools as per the Karnataka Education Act. On the other hand, Advocate KV Dhananjaya supported the single judge’s decision, while Advocate Pritvish Mirle raised concerns about disparities between assessments for private and government schools.

In light of the court’s decision, the Karnataka State Examination and Assessment Board has revised the timetable for Classes 5, 8, and 9 exams. These exams will be conducted in the afternoon on March 25 and 27, with consideration for the ongoing SSLC exams from March 25 to April 6.
