UP Board 2021 Class 12th Exam will be held on July 2021


UP Board 10th Exam 2021 Cancelled: Finally, in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, UP Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Mr Dinesh Sharma stated that the UP Board High School Exam 2021 for Class 10 students has been cancelled, putting an end to a long-standing dilemma for almost 28 lakh kids. Mr Sharma further stated that the UP Board Intermediate Exam 2021 for students in Class 12 will be held in the second week of July 2021. The announcement comes as a huge relief to UP Board Class 10 students, who have been waiting for it for nearly three weeks.


Class 10 Exam Cancelled, Promotion Criteria to be Announced Soon

With the postponement of the examination, it is now apparent that all Class 10 students enrolled in UP Board-affiliated institutions have been promoted to the next grade without having to take the exam. Mr Dinesh Sharma said that the UP Board 10th Exam 2021 has been cancelled owing to COVID-19, but he did not identify the promotion criteria that will be utilised to evaluate them. The criteria for promotion will be announced at a later date.


Class 12 Exam in 2nd Week of July

While the UP Board's Class 10 (High School) test has been cancelled, the state administration has decided to hold the Class 12 (Intermediate) test once the pandemic situation has improved. As per UP Deputy Chief Minister Mr Dinesh Sharma's declaration, the UP Board 12th Class Exam 2021 will be held in the second week of July 2021. As of now, no precise date for the exam has been set because the administration will assess the current circumstances and only hold tests if it is feasible. In terms of pattern and syllabus, he stated that the exams would be held in accordance with the current pattern.


Class 6 to 9 and Class 11 Students to be Promoted

Apart from cancelling the Class 10 exam for UP Board students, the state administration has also announced that no yearly assessment exams will be held for students in grades 6 through 9, as well as students in grades 11 and 12. These students would all be promoted to the next class without having to take an exam. In the absence of the specific board's promotion policy, this decision would apply to all students of the board as well as students of other boards.


UP Board Result: The Uttar Pradesh Board had previously requested that schools upload pre-board and half-yearly exam results to the UPMSP's official website. Divya Kant Shukla, the UPMSP Secretary, had also issued directions in this regard to all district schools across the state. Following the decision, rumours circulated that the UPMSP will cancel class 10 exams and evaluate matric results based on the internal evaluation. Meanwhile, the pending examinations are expected to be held between July 15 and August 25 by the Central Board of Secondary Education. Nothing has been finalised as of yet, and the final decision on the Class 12 exam dates is expected on June 1.
