The board exams in the state will begin on February 18. The Board has allotted forenoon session for high school or class 10 exams and afternoon session for intermediate or class 12 exams for most of the subjects. The UP board exams will conclude on March 6.
UP Board has been infamous for mass misconduct during exams in the past. The government in past few years has taken several measures to check cheating during exam.
As a result of strict measures taken to stop students from misconduct, UP Board has seen many student drop out of exams altogether after appearing for the first exam.
Some of the measures taken by the UP administration last year included CCTV cameras and voice recorders at the exam centres. The administration also identified hyper-sensitive exam centres and had extra steps taken to avoid any misdemeanor at these centres.
Reports suggest that this year the number of students who registered for board exams has reduced in comparison to last year. In 2019, over 57 lakh students were registered with the board for annual exams. The number has reduced by at least 1 lakh this year.
