Dr. Dinesh Sharma, the Deputy Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, said on Saturday that the UP board class 10 exams had been canceled due to the second wave of COVID-19. He went on to say that all pupils in class 10 will be promoted to class 11 without having to take an exam.
The class 12 exams, on the other hand, will be held in the second week of July. Following a cabinet meeting with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the decision was made.
The criterion for student promotion will be defined by UPMSP in due course. Around 29 lakh children registered to take the class 10 examinations this year. These children will all be promoted to class 11 next year.
UP Board 10th Exam Cancelled Due to COVID-19
Exams for grades 10 and 12 have been postponed twice this year. Exams were originally scheduled to begin on April 24 but were postponed to May 8 due to a conflict with the Panchayat elections. As a result of the growing instances, the state went into lockdown on April 30, and all educational institutions were ordered to close until May 10. However, due to the government's decision to keep all educational institutions closed across the state until May 15, examinations were once again postponed.
Aside from that, the minister dispelled any doubts about the class 12 board exams, which are set to take place in the second week of July. In a high-level meeting with the Union Minister of Education
Ramesh Pokhriyal and secretaries of other states/UTs, the UP board decided to go with the second alternative given by the CBSE. The UP-board class 12 exams would take 1.5 hours to complete.
