The Uttar Pradesh Basic Education Board is expected to release the revised answer key for the UPTET 2022 exam anytime today. The board had earlier announced the release of the answer key on February 25, 2022. However, UPBEB deferred the publication of the same owing to the state assembly elections. The election commission rules had restricted the government to proceed further with any recruitment process/examination in the state, as stated under the model code of conduct rule.

It must also be noted that no further objections to the final answer key will be entertained by the board.
The UPTET 2021-2022 exam was held on January 23, 2022, and the provisional answer was released on January 27, 202.
