The board examinations of the Uttar Pradesh Board for classes 10th and 12th are starting from 22nd February. Uttar Pradesh Board of Secondary Education is the largest board in Asia. This year, students will be provided with color-coded hi-tech answer keys where they will write the answers to the questions asked. For the first time, the answer sheets in board exams will also have QR codes.

The answer sheets will have separate QR codes on and in the middle of the first page, ensuring that the exam copies cannot be altered in any way for copying. Teachers on duty at the examination centres will also have ID cards with QR codes. Uttar Pradesh Board Secretary Dibyakant Shukla said that the board examinations will start from 22 February 2024 and this time the board examinations will be completed within 12 working days. The high school and intermediate examinations of the Uttar Pradesh Board will end on March 9, 2024.

More than 55 lakh students will appear for the exam, including 29,47,311 for the Class 10 exam and 25,77,997 for the Class 12 board exam. To accommodate these students, 8265 examination centres have been set up across the state. These include 566 government schools, 3479 aided schools and 4220 unaided school examination centres.

A significant change has been made in the examination process with the generation of computerized ID cards with QR codes and numbers for 2.75 lakh observers to prevent malpractices. Additionally, QR codes, numbers and logos are printed to prevent any manipulation in the copies. Command and control centres have been set up at Prayagraj headquarters and all five regional offices to monitor the examination.

With around 1,35,000 examination rooms on the campus and over 2,90,000 voice recorders equipped with CCTV cameras, extensive surveillance has been maintained. District and state-level control rooms will continuously monitor them through webcasting. 16 districts including Mathura, Baghpat, Aligarh, Mainpuri, Etah, Hardoi, Azamgarh, Ballia, Mau, Prayagraj, Kaushambi, Chandauli, Jaunpur, Ghazipur, Deoria and Gonda have been identified as sensitive districts for special attention.
