Entrance Tests in all type of Schools are banned from 1st to 8th standard

A major relief to parents seeking admission into schools for their children, the Government on Friday (6th July) issued orders banning entrance examinations for admissions from 1st standard to 8th standard in all types of schools.

Schools violating the rules will be charged with a fine of Rs. 25,000 to Rs. 50,000 for every violation from 6th July. This law came from Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, which came into effect from April 1 of 2010.

The Right To Education Act Says:
“If any school or person subjects a child to a screening procedure, shall be punishable with fine which may extend to Rs 25,000 for the first contravention and Rs 50,000 for each subsequent contraventions.”

Effect of the New Law:

The Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalayas (RPVV) schools conducted entrance test on April 9 violating the act and have paid a fine of Rs 25, 000.

Exams only measure a small portion of a student’s true potential. There are so many other things that exams do not measure, but are important to one's future success. So we think it’s a right decision.
