NEW DELHI: Girls students appearing in the UP Board 10th and 12th exams in the current academic year will get the exam centre within 5 km of radius from their schools. Differently-abled students, with more than 40 per cent disability will also get either the exam centre in their own school or within 5 km radius. Also, the boy’s students will not be allowed to appear in an exam centre of an all-girls school.

Aradhana Shukla, Additional chief secretary (secondary education) said, “At a time when the government has launched Mission Shakti for security of women, we too decided to help our girl appearing in the exam by allotting them a centre closest from their original institution.”

In some other changes, considering the COVID -19 situation in the state, a minimum of 150 and a maximum of 800 students are allowed to appear in the exam in a day in both the shifts. Also, It is a must for the exam halls to have at least 36 square feet space for each student. Earlier, this limit was 20 sq feet for each student.
