As per the reports, the Uttar Pradesh Govt is planning to hold the exams for Class 10 and Class 12 as they have not yet confirmed the cancellation for the same. Dinesh Sharma, Deputy Chief Minister of the state, who also holds the Education portfolio, in his recent interaction with a News Channel, said that UPMSP is ready to conduct exams for both Classes 10 and 12. Making his point clear he said, “We will be holding a meeting with the Chief Minister this week to decide whether the exams for Class 10 will be held or the students will be promoted to the next class.”
Talking with ABP News about holding class 12 exams, Mr Sharma said that since the results of Class 12 exams play a crucial role in future studies of the students, UPMSP is looking forward to conducting these examinations. They are waiting for the centre’s decision on it.
The UPMSP board is confident about conducting the board exams smoothly. Backing the arrangements made by the board, Sharma said, “We are ready to conduct board exams. UP Board will conduct exams and declare results within a month”.
While most of the State Boards and CBSE have canceled the exams for Class 10, the UP govt is yet to make a decision. Mr. Sharma said that a decision on high school exams will be taken after his meeting with the Chief Minister within this week. They will make a decision on holding intermediate exams, in accordance with the Center’s decision, which might come on June 1.
Over 56 lakhs students have registered themselves for the board exams of class 10 and 12. Out of which, 26,09,501 applied for class 10 whereas 29,94,312 applied for class 12.
Earlier, the UP government had postponed the board exams for classes 10 and 12 in the wake of the panchayat elections. They had to further defer the dates due to an unprecedented surge in coronavirus cases across the country. In the latest update, the government seems confident about conducting the exams for both class 10 and 12.
Before this, Divya Kant Shukla, the UPMSP Secretary had issued guidelines to all district schools to upload the results of pre-board and half-yearly exam results on the official website of UPMSP. Thus, people were speculating that class 10 exams may get canceled and the students might be promoted to higher classes based on the internal assessments.
