Putting rumours to rest, the Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) has warned Class 10, Class 12 students and their parents not to be deceived by any fake calls asking for money.
According to the UP board, some people, who identify themselves as board members, are asking money from students in order to pass them.
In a statement UPMSP said “Some undesirable elements are using the COVID-19 situation for their personal benefit by creating confusion regarding board results…students and parents should not fall for these fake calls. We request you to inform the police if you receive any unwanted call.”
Previously, the board had announced that it will start evaluation of Class 10 and Class 12 answer sheets in districts with containment zones from May 19, 2020.
The results of Class 10 and 12 will be declared soon.
Recently, National Testing Agency, or NTA, released circular asking students to beware of fake and fraudulent calls, SMS and email regarding National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test Undergraduate, or NEET UG 2020.
