UP Board Class 10, 12 Exams 2021: The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad has made big announcements on the UP Board Class 10, 12 Exams 2021 on its official website upmsp.edu.in. The board has decided to toughen its rules for the exam centres for the next year’s board exams in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The board has made it abundantly clear that schools that do not have access to 10-ft wide road will not be designated as exam centres. According to the Hindustan Times, the board has also decided to increase the number of exam centres by one-and-a-half-times to ensure the compliance of social distancing norms announced by the government in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
The board has yet to announce the dates for the next year’s board exams. This would depend on the COVID-19 situation in the state. The UP board may widen the gap between two papers to reduce the risks for coronavirus for candidates.
