UP Board 10th and 12th Exam 2021 May be Postponed: As per the latest update, the Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) may decide to postpone the UP Board 10th and 12th Exam 2021 due to the upcoming Panchayat Elections in the state. The final proposal about deferring UP Board Exam 2021 has been sent to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s office who is expected to take a final decision on it soon. Going by the schedule released the State Election Commission, the UP Panchayat Elections 2021 are scheduled to be held in April 2021 in three different phases. The last phase is expected to end by 30th April while the counting of votes is expected to happen by 3rd – 4th May 2021. As per these dates, the Panchayat Elections of UP are likely to crash with UP Board Exam 2021 starting from 24th April. To avoid this clash, UPMSP and UP Education Department has presented a proposal to postpone exams until 8th May and start it simultaneously with CBSE Board Exam 2021.
As per a media report filed by leading daily Dainik Jagran, the Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, who also holds the portfolio for Education, had confirmed that UP Board 10th and 12th Exam 2021 will be held only after the conclusion of Panchayat Elections. Without giving any specific dates, he said that revised time-table for the UPMSP Board Exam 2021 will be issued soon after consultation with necessary stakeholders, after the election dates are announced.
As per the official date sheet released by the UP Board, UPMSP plans to hold the Class 10 and 12 Exams for High School and Intermediate students starting from 24th April 2021. However, due to delay in holding of Panchayat Elections, the exams are likely to be pushed back by nearly two week and start in1st Week of May 2021. As per tentative estimates, Election Commission is likely to conclude the Panchayat Polls cycle within 42 days of the issuance of the order. With exams likely to be postponed by nearly a week, the result declaration is also expected to be pushed further. As per the earlier date-sheet, UP Board High School and Intermediate Board Exam 2021 Results were expected around 10th June 2021. However, after the delay, this can change to 15th or 17th June 2021, depending on speed of the evaluation process.REGISTER FOR RESULTS UPDATES
