Whether it’s the strictness to keep the copy mafia at bay or any other reason, 40,392 students have skipped on the ongoing UP Board exams till now. The examination had started on Friday and this figure also includes 20,674 students who didn’t take the exam on the first day, as per the data released by UP Madhamik Siksha Parishad on Friday evening.
“Around 40,392 candidates did not turn up to write their examinations. This is the number that we have tabulated after compiling students’ attendance on the completion of first two days of the exams. We can’t say exactly if it is due to strict measures put in place to put an end to copying,” Neena Srivastava, Secretary, UP Board was quoted by HT.
