More Than 400,000 Students Miss First Shift Of UP Board 2023 Exams
The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) recently conducted the class X and XII board examinations on February 16, 2023. The exams were held across 8,753 examination centers equipped with CCTV cameras and other surveillance facilities to ensure fair and secure testing conditions. The UPMSP has taken extensive measures to ensure the smooth administration of the exams, and students and staff are commended for their cooperation in this effort. We wish all the students who appeared for the exams the best of luck and look forward to seeing their results.
As per the official document, 31,08,584 students registered for the Hindi paper exam in the first shift. Of this, 2,17,702 students were absent, as per attendance records. For the class XII Military Science paper, a total of 5,640 students registered, out of which 487 were absent during the examination. While it is unfortunate that some students missed the exam, we wish all the candidates who did appear for the exams the best of luck, and we hope that they performed to the best of their abilities.
Reports indicate that during the UP Board 2023 exams, as many as 10 students – including 7 males and 3 females in Class 10, and one student in Class XII – were caught using unfair means during the exams. This behavior undermines the integrity of the examination process and is not tolerated. It is important that all students uphold the principles of honesty and fairness during exams to ensure that their results reflect their true abilities. The administration will take appropriate action against those who violate the rules and regulations of the examination.
In addition to the students caught using unfair means during the Class 10 Hindi paper examination, it has come to light that a total of 9 proxy candidates were found during the checking of examination centers. Of the nine proxies, five were from Ghazipur, and one each from Mathura, Jaunpur, Bulandshahar, and Lucknow. The administration takes a strong stance against this form of cheating and has filed a First Information Report (FIR) against these proxy candidates and Yogendra Yadav, the principal of Suchit Nandan Inter College, Vishnupura, Ghazipur. We hope that these incidents serve as a reminder to all students that honesty and integrity are paramount during exams and any attempts to subvert the examination process will not be tolerated.
The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) is conducting Class X and XII examinations from February 16 to March 4, 2023, over a total of 14 working days. Notably, this year the board has introduced new measures to prevent cheating, including printing QR codes and the board’s logo on the answer sheets in four different colors. These measures are aimed at deterring mass copying and ensuring the integrity of the examination process. It is important that all students abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the board to ensure that their results reflect their true abilities.
