Board examinations of SSC and HSC are the most significant examinations countrywide. All states are conducting public examinations for class 10th and class 12th. Some states were also conducting examinations in class 5th and 8th. The Union HRD ministry is going to issue a notification to the state education boards to allow to hold exams for class 5th and 8th. However ministry has also suggested the children who do not pass these exams are allowed to appear for another exam just in a week’s time.
As per the No-Detention policy or no-Fail policy, school children are not failed till 1st to 8th standards. The policy was launched to reduce student’s pressure and dropouts from schools. The policy is yet again in news during the exam and result season as last year Rajasthan government passed a bill scrapping the policy. It has become the first state in country to bring amendment to No Fail Policy till Class VIIIth. It has claimed to bring this amendment in order to improve level of education in state schools.

No-Fail Policy Revision & Board Exams
From next year, students in all schools regardless of their affiliation to state or central board, will have to appear for two board examinations before Class Xth exam if the policy is revised. The controversial policy is already catching eye in all states. Rajasthan and Karnataka are currently supporting scrapping of the policy. The policy allows all students to continue their study till 10th without clearing a single exam.
As per the new proposal which is under consideration by Ministry of Human Resource Development, there will be one level test at IVth standard. The second level test will be at the end of the VIIIth standard.
Currently, in presence of No Fail Policy students are evaluated directly by boards at class 10th. Class 10th board examination results are known by different names like SSC, Matriculation exams, SSLC or Madhyamik results. All states including Maharashtra, Goa, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab and Rajasthan will be declaring SSC Result 2016 during end of May 2016.
With the start of new academic session in coming June 2016, the controversial education policy of No-Fail will be buzzing up largely in the education world. HRD launched the policy under RTE Act which allow students to have right to education regardless of scores till 10th.
