Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister has announced that in the upcoming session the board exams for both class 10 and class 12 students would be concluded in a time span of 16 days. Speaking to ANI news agency, he said that the board exams would begin on February 7.
UP Board has been notorious for delay in exam schedules and cheating during the exams. In 2018, the government had taken several precautionary measures to check unfair practices during the board exams. Almost 10 lakh students had dropped out of board exams in 2018 due to the strict steps taken by the state government.
It is expected that in 2019 too the government would keep a strict check on exam practices.
In 2018, more than 29 lakh students had appeared for the class 12 board exams and almost 36 lakh students appeared for the class 10 board exams.
