The results were based on the new tabulation method after the UP government cancelled the exams owing to a surge in Covid-19 infected cases. For (class 12) students, the board considered 50% marks obtained in class 10, then 40% in class 11 and the remaining 10% obtained by students in the pre-board examination of class 12. Likewise for class 10 students, 50% marks were calculated on the basis of total marks obtained in class 9 and 50% of marks scored in class 10 pre-board.

As many as 29.9 lakh candidates had registered for class 10 exams of which 29.8 lakh were declared pass. In class 12, 25.5 lakh candidates were declared successful out of 26.1 lakh who had registered. Among 29.8 lakh who passed class 10 exams, 82,238 students were given promotion without any marks. These students said officials were those who were passed due to ‘doubtful’ situations. Likewise, in class 12 62,506 students out of 25.5 lakh were promoted but were not given any marks as these were cases of doubt.
As per the communique from UPSEB, students who failed to secure minimum pass marks in theory subjects during the tabulation exercise, and those whose scores of annual examinations of class 9 and 11, and marks of pre-boards of class 10 and 12 were unavailable were given promotion in a uniform manner.
“These students had to be promoted because the Board didn’t have any data of such students. This was most likely because their schools conducted no exams where students could appear,” said a senior official.
