The education Minister Arvind Pandey has directed the Uttarakhand Vidhyalayi Shiksha Parishad (UVSP) to start the process of evaluation of answer sheets of class X and XII board examination. In a programme organised at the state education directorate here on Wednesday the minister said that the pending process of the evaluation of board examination should start. He said that the department officers and officials of UVSP should act in association with the district magistrates for the evaluation centres. In another important decision, the minister directed the UVSP that the time table of the remaining examinations should be declared in such a way that the students get a time period of 15 days for necessary preparation.
It is pertinent to mention here that the class X and XII examination of Uttarakhand board scheduled on March 23, 24 and 25 were suspended by the UVSP after the lockdown to break infection cycle of novel Coronavirus was enforced by the Government.
The examination of class X started on March 2 while the examinations of Class XII commenced on March 3. A total of 1,50,279 candidates are enrolled for class X while 121126 students are registered for class XII examination this year. The decision of the minister regarding start of evaluation process is important since the entire process of board examination is already late by more than one month. With the UVSP yet to take a decision on holding the remaining examinations, it is very likely that the whole process may get delayed by at least one more month.
