It is noteworthy that the Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) has started conducting the high school and intermediate examinations in the state from March 24. While the high school examinations were slated to be completed in 12 working days, the intermediate examinations were scheduled to be held over 15 working days.

The directives were given at a meeting held by Chief Secretary Durga Shankar Mishra with all divisional commissioners, police commissioners, district magistrates and SSPs through video conferencing.
