Though all preparations by the Haryana Board of School Education (HBSE) pointed its readiness for holding successful tests, candidates are confused as the private colleges are demanding change in the examination schedule because Children's Day is celebrated on November 14.
"The government should change the examination schedule as Children's Day is celebrated on November 14 in all schools. We would not be able to provide space as the students need to listen to Prime Minister Modi's Man ki Baat address on the day", Kulbhushan Sharma, President of Haryana Private Schools' Welfare Association, said while talking to the media.
He also said that if the government doesn't accede to their demands, the association will move to the High Court.
Sharma said there are abour 14,000 private schools in Haryana, and about 01,000 schools have been chosen for the HTET November 2015 exams.
Interestingly, the Haryana Teachers Eligibility Test (HTET) 2015 were already postponed - first due to panchayat polls and later unavailability of HTE centers. The exams were earlier scheduled to take place on August 30 and 31. They were later rescheduled for October and finally to November 14 and 15.
The controversies surrounding the Haryana Teachers Eligibility Test (HTET) 2015 do not end here. The Haryana Board of School Education (HBSE) in a bid to promote Prime Minister Modi's 'Digital India' campaign had declared to conduct online computer tests. In response to this, the board received applications from about 44,000 candidates.
The board however directed 12,000 candidates to sit for paper based written exam due to inadequate number of exam centers. The online exams for the aspiring candidates will be held in the engineering and polytechnic colleges of the state.
To give the candidates an idea of the online exam pattern, the board has provided online mock test facility on its official website.
