Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said, “About 75 per cent of the nearly 11 lakh students who skipped this year’s board examinations were from neighbouring states, and some of them were even from foreign countries like Nepal and Bangladesh”. He had earlier said, “We are happy that it was a copying-free examination and the answer sheets have been evaluated on time. We will declare the results of UP Board examinations for Class 10 and Class 12 in April. The new academic session will start on April 16 and by July, the new education calendar will be issued”.
Since nearly 11 lakh skipped their UP Board exams due to the fear of failure, some of them turned to desperate measures like attaching notes on their answer sheets. Currency notes of Rs 100, Rs 50 and Rs 500 were found in answer sheets during the checking of Class 12 board examination papers in Firozabad district. One of the examiners said, “Students, whose exams did not go well, are attaching currency notes in the examination papers to bribe us. We are giving marks only on merit. None of us are accepting the money found in the answer sheets.”
