UP Board exams 2021: No merit list will be declared this year, says CM
LUCKNOW [Maha Media]: In a meeting with officials here on Sunday, chief minister Yogi Adiyanath said following the cancellation of UP Board Class 10 and 12 examination due to Covid, no merit list would be declared. It was decided that students of these classes must be given an opportunity to appear in exams when conditions improved so that they may get a fair chance to increase their marks. Presently marks would be awarded largely on the basis of scores obtained in the previous class and the pre-board exams held earlier.
Speaking on the issue, an official of the secondary education department said, "We are giving an option to students that if they are not satisfied with the marks for the cancelled exam, the board will allow them to appear in the said exam next year when high school and intermediate examinations will be held." To note, the state government has scrapped the UP Board Class 10 and 12 exams this year due to Covid-19. A committee has been formed under an additional chief secretary, secondary education, Aradhana Shukla to hold meetings with various stakeholders and work out modalities to award marks to students for cancelled examinations.
