On similar lines, the UP Board High School Exam will be held from 16th February to 6th March 2017.
Earlier rumours suggested that the UP Board Exam 2017 might be delayed due to the UP Elections which are scheduled to be held around the same time. However, the announcement of the tentative UP Board Exam dates from 6th February has given hope to 65 lakh students, who will be appearing this year.
UP Board Date Sheet 2017 to be announced next week
This announcement is has eased nerves of nearly 65 lakh students who will be appearing in the world’s biggest school-level board examination. Sources from UP Board have also suggested that the official UP Board Time Table 2017 with subject-wise details will be declared in the coming week, as the final modalities regarding the dates are being worked out by the UPMSP.
UP Board Exams - Earlier than last year
Although the official UP Board High School Time Table and UP Board Intermediate Time Table are yet to be formally announced; the tentative dates suggest that the UP Board Exams will be held earlier than last year. Last year, both UP Board 10th Exam and UP Board 12th Class Exam began on 18th February. Compared to that, the UP board Intermediate Exam Date for 2017 has been pushed ahead by almost 12 days to 6th February 2017. Similarly, the UP Board High School Exam 2017 is also expected to begin 2 days earlier on 16th February, this year. With the UP Board Exam Date being pushed ahead, we can also expect the UP Board Exam Results 2017 to be announced earlier as well.
UP Board Exam 2017 - Biggest Board Exam in the world
As stated earlier, UP Board is not only the biggest school board in India; it is also the biggest school board examination in the world. This makes conducting UP Board Exam 2017 a major challenge for UPMSP (Uttar Pradesh Madyamik Shiksha Parishad). In 2016, a total of 37,49,977 appeared for the UP Board 10th Exam, whereas 30,43,057 participated in the UP Board Intermediate Exam. If the growth trend continues, we could easily see these numbers rise significantly.
