In the wake of Corona pandemic, UP Board is taking the help of technology to prepare the results by June 27.
It has launched a limited access portal to work as a bridge between officials working at headquarters and those at the firm finalising the Board exam results.
To maintain confidentiality, this firm is based out of Uttar Pradesh.
The usual practice has been to send a team of 8 to 10 experienced staff members from each of five regional offices of UP Board located in Prayagraj, Varanasi, Gorakhpur, Meerut and Bareilly to the state where the results are being finalised to maintain confidentiality.
With social distancing becoming a norm, this year, the portal is being used for receiving queries from the firm representatives and sending required information regarding missing details on case by case basis like missing practical or written exam marks of some students etc.
This is being done by getting the doubt sorted with the help of UP Board’s regional offices by HQ.
“Everything is being done online without anyone physically needing to travel out of state,” said officials.
After thorough testing, the portal has been made operational just three days back, they added.
Though owing to the confidential nature of the work, no board official is ready to comment on record, UP Board secretary Neena Srivastava said the evaluation work was now over and results were being finalized.
Another official of the board, aware of the procedure, shared that only designated few individuals have been granted access to interact through portal on both sides.
