The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) has said that the class 10 and 12 exams date sheet circulating online is fake.
This comes after a ‘fake’ date-sheet of class 10th and 12th examination was found widely on the internet.
Divya Kant Shukla, Secretary, UPMSP, confirmed that the revised date-sheet of class 10th and 12th that is being shared on the internet is fake.
“It is informed that the high school (Class 10) and intermediate (Class 12) examinations date sheet of the year 2021 was being circulated on WhatsApp dated 17-5-2021 which says that examinations will be held from 05 June 2021 to 25 June 2021. This timetable is fake. FIR will be registered against those who have circulated this fake news,” the Board Secretary said.
Last month, the Uttar Pradesh government had deferred the board examinations of class 10th and 12th following the worsening COVID-19 situation across the country. The administration is yet to take any decision on the same.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath chaired a meeting where the closure of the schools was extended until further notice. The administration has also allowed school teachers to work from home.
