The UP Secondary Education Board is all set to conduct board exams for Classes 10 and 12 from today, February 22, in two shifts. More than 55 lakh candidates have been registered to appear for the board exams in Uttar Pradesh today.

The board exams in Uttar Pradesh begin with the Hindi paper for both Class 10 and Class 12. Admit cards have already been distributed to the candidates. 

According to a Times of India (TOI) report, Board Secretary Dibyakant Shukla said that over 3 lakh invigilators have been deployed for the UP board exams. Each invigilator has been given an ID card with QR code. The answer books of UP board exams will also have QR codes.

Shukla told TOI that the Special Task Force (STF), the local intelligence department, and the police are actively working to stop cheating in the UP board examination. “A three-tier team has been formed to open the question paper packets at the examination centres. Centre administrators, external centre administrators, and static magistrates have been included in this," he added.

Dibyakant Shukla said that the UP Board has come up with a new system for opening the question paper packet. "Under this, joint accountability of the external centre administrator and the static magistrate has been fixed along with the centre administrator. In case of a wrong opening, action will be taken against all three." 

The UP Board has also set up a Quick Reaction Team (QRT) to monitor social media, and it will remain active 24X7. 

For the examination centres and strong rooms, a command room has been set up in all the regional offices including the Board Headquarters to monitor them. 

All the district school inspectors of Uttar Pradesh will inspect the examination centres at nighttime as well. 

On UP board exams' first day (Thursday), in the first shift, the High School Hindi and Elementary Hindi examinations will be held in 8,273 centres. Military Science will be conducted in 244 centres for intermediate exams. As many as 29,38,663 candidates are registered in high school, while there are 5,123 candidates in intermediate.

In the second shift of the first day, Hindi and General Hindi examinations for class 12 will be held at 8,232 centres. Class 10's commerce exam will be held at 1,619 centres. In Intermediate, 24,29,278 candidates have been registered, while 38,437 candidates for High School.
