UP Board Exams 2021 – Class 10, 12 exams to be cancelled? Check recent updates

New Delhi, 6 May 2021 – Considering the present COVID situation in the country, it is being speculated that UP Board examinations are expected to be cancelled. The speculations of cancellation grew stronger ever since the Education Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Dinesh Sharma was tested COVID positive. It is also found that 17 officers out of 19 who handle the operations of board examination in the state are coronavirus positive and will not be able to join work soon. 

Key Highlights:

  • UP Board 2021 exams are expected to be cancelled
  • Lockdown in UP has been extended due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in the state
  • The Education Minister of UP, Dinesh Sharma and other 17 out of 19 officers are COVID positive.

The Uttar Pradesh government has extended the lockdown due to the precarious second wave of COVID-19. Hence, it will be risky to conduct exams for such a large number of students amid the rapid increase of infected cases. While the UPMSP (Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad) has already decided to postpone the new UP Board exam 2021 date for Class 12 and 10 till the situation normalizes, a complete cancellation might also be on the cards.
