Lucknow: In a major update for Uttar Pradesh Board students, the state government is considering promoting all students of class 10 on the basis of half-yearly and pre-board examination and is mulling other options as well.
The fate of about 30 lakh students will be decided on the basis of the promotion criteria that the government approves.
Deputy Chief Minister and Secondary Education Minister Dr. Dinesh Sharma will soon discuss all aspects with the board officers and send a proposal to the Chief Minister regarding the examination.
