Lucknow, May 28 : Results of the Uttar Pradesh Board for classes 10 and 12 are expected to be announced in the last week of June. The checking of the copies were underway at a fast pace after the lockdown and it will be completed in the next fortnight. Board sources here on Thursday said that efforts were on to declare the results of X and XII board exams latest by June 30.
The new academic session is also slated from July 1. Another report said that around 85 per cent work of evaluation had been completed and the entire copy checking work would be completed by the first week of June and thereafter, work for declaration of results would be done. Secretary of UP Board Neena Srivastava would complete her three month extension on June 30 and hence, the results would be declared before that date. Earlier, the government had given Ms Srivastava three-month extension after she retired from service on March 31 during the lockdown, so that the results were declared in her tenure. The examination for both classes X and XII were held from February 16 to March 6 this year and the results were expected on April 24.
But due to lockdown, the Board's plan got disturbed. Around 56 lakh students had registered themselves to appear in X and XII UP Board exams this year, but around three lakh had dropped out and did not appear for the exams. (UNI)
