UP Board’s high school and intermediate examinations were completed peacefully on Saturday. The special thing is that the examination has been conducted in 12 working days, the shortest time recorded in the history of the board. Earlier last year, the examination was held in only 14 working days. 324008 candidates (High School 184986 and Intermediate 139022) remained absent in the examination. The number of people leaving the exam is the lowest in three years. In 2023, 450011 (high school 252833 and intermediate 197178) and in 2022 434404 (high school 261011 and intermediate 173393) were absent. The main reason for this is effective control on registration of fake candidates and increased confidence of students towards board exams.

After the completion of the cheating-free examination, UP Board Secretary Dibyakant Shukla told the media at the board headquarters on Saturday that FIRs have been lodged against a total of 56 people in different districts who affected the sanctity of the examination. This year only 48 candidates were caught cheating, whereas in 2023 and 2022, 127 and 190 candidates were caught cheating respectively. This year, 37 solvers were caught appearing for the exam in second place, while in 2023 and 2022, 133 and 47 solvers were caught respectively.

In this, CCTV cameras of 455 examination centers were not live, they were immediately made live. All the centers and their strong rooms were monitored through 180 employees appointed in three shifts on 60 computers in the command center of the Board Headquarters. The strong room was also monitored from the command centers of the five regional offices. Apart from this, officials in all the districts inspected the strong room at night, due to which the purity of the question papers was maintained.

He was arrested inside and sent to jail and the board canceled the recognition of that school.
