Guidelines for this will be issued soon by the government. CM Yogi gave his final seal on this decision. This is the first time in the 100-year history of the UP Board that the Inter exam has been cancelled.
CM Yogi held a meeting with the Deputy CM and officials of the Education Department at Lok Bhavan on Thursday morning. Apart from CBSE, ICSE, the governments of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan had canceled the board exams. In such a situation, there was already a strong possibility that the UP government would also cancel the exam. The government has already canceled the 10th examination of the UP board.
After the decision, the Deputy CM said that it may take some time to control the infection. Because of this, PM Narendra Modi reviewed different states. After this, the central government had canceled the CBSE board’s 10th and 12th examinations. Today we have decided to cancel the 12th class examinations of UP Board. This decision has been taken keeping in view the safety of the students. However, it is being told that Deputy CM Dinesh Sharma had made preparations to conduct the 12th examination. But in view of the fear of third wave of Corona, the government thought it better to cancel the examination.
In view of the current circumstances of the COVID pandemic, the health protection of children is our top priority.
With the inspiration of respected Prime Minister @UPGovt It has been decided that in the current academic session, Board examination of 10th and 12th board of Board of Secondary Education will not be conducted.
