The UPSMP board announced its results way behind schedule this year, with the exam pushed back due to the UP elections and then the controversy over the grace marks policy further delaying the results. Last year, the board had declared its results by May 15.
This year, around 34.04 lakh students appeared for the class X boards, while class XII boards had a total of 26.24 lakh students appearing. A significant minority of students did not turn in their exam sheets as the board was particularly strict with the conduction of the exam, aimed to stamp out the use of unfair means. The board also announced a policy of re-evaluation of all answer copies of candidates who score above 90 percent.
The declaration of results was met with exaltation and excitement. UP CM Yogi Adityanath announced a cash prize for all girl students who cleared the class X and XII examination.The board authorities though reminded students that the online results could not be considered equivalent to their original mark sheets. The UP Board website says that the result on the website cannot be considered original mark sheet. “Neither NIC nor Board of High School & Intermediate Education- U.P., Allahabad is responsible for any inadvertent error that may have crept in the results being published on NET. The results published on online are for immediate information to the examinees. These results cannot be treated as original mark sheets. Original mark sheets are to be issued by the Board separately,” the UP Board website read.
