The state government has not yet announced any dates for resuming offline classes.

The UP Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) had recently issued a statement regarding the “fake” UP board exam date sheets for Class 10 and 12 circulating on social media. The UP Board Secretary Divyakant Shukla in a press conference stated, “An examination schedule of UP Board high school and intermediate exam to be held between June 5 and 25 went viral on social media on May 17 is bogus and fake. We request everyone to ignore it. The board will lodge an FIR against all those who will be found guilty of spreading fake news.”

The UP government has also postponed the high school class 10 and intermediate class 12 exams of the UP Board due to the surge in Covid-19 cases in the state. The UPMSP has not made any announcement regarding the fresh dates of the board exams.
