Exam Brief

The West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) is an autonomous body established by the government of West Bengal to look after the secondary education activities in the state. WBBSE is responsible for framing rules and regulations, guidelines, syllabus, evaluation criteria etc., for the Class 8 along with the other classes from 6th to 10th examinations in West Bengal. 

As per the WBBSE guidelines, the evaluation of all Class 8 students throughout the year is conducted by the respective schools. Accordingly, every school conducts Formative (FA) and Summative Assessment (SA) and examinations for 8th students. Students studying in the 8th standard can check the exam pattern and syllabus.

Please note that there is no pass / fail system upto 8th grade evaluation for West Bengal Board of Secondary Education. Care is taken by the teachers that the students get at least 25% or more marks and promoted to the next higher class. 

But if a student falls short of 25% either in Summative Evaluation or in Formative Evaluation or in both, one month’s time is given. In such cases, both the student and the teacher work together hard to improve the performance of the student and then the evaluation is done again. This process is continued until the student improves adequately to score 25% plus and promoted to the next higher class. 

Hence, every grade 8 student is promoted to grade 9 after passing through this evaluation system.

Student Counselling

  • Secondary education consists of 6th to 10th grade in West Bengal and 6th to 8th grade of education may be considered the foundation for the higher classes like 9th and 10th in the secondary section.
  • Through constant education and guidance in two earlier classes (6th and 7th), a student is no longer new to the secondary education system. They have matured to some extent with age. 
  • The student needs to consolidate more on his studies to make the foundation stronger, plug in all the loopholes/shortfalls/weaknesses at this stage and start mental preparation for the 10th board exam two years down the line.
  • Parents need to understand that at this stage along with studies, games & sports and interest in various other areas, one more factor starts disturbing their kids. That is the adolescence factor. Parents need to play a critical role in nurturing their children at this stage of adolescence.
  • Proper guidance, control and close monitoring are needed at this stage, especially by the parents of their kids.
