UP Board Class 10th & 12th Students Drop Out | Exam Reforms To Blame ?
What comes as a shock followed by the decision of students of Class 10th and 12th to opt out of the UP board examinations 2018 seems to be the latest examination reforms & code of conduct of the intermediate and high school exams of UP board. The authorities have applied stringent rules and regulations for candidates before they appear for the UP board class 10th & 12th board exams in 2018. In addition to this norm, the penalties incorporated if any candidate of UP board Class 10th or 12th is found to have flouted the norms has added fuel to the fire. This is speculated to be the main cause of the sky rocketing high rise in number of students dropping out from UP board schools for the upcoming examination session in 2018.
Recently, a copying mafia was busted which is again the speculated and most cited reason for the higher range of dropping out rate of the students of Class 10th & 12th of UP Board.

Why only after the crack down of the mafia for copying & impersonation, we see such a bad shocker in UP Board’s upcoming exams of Class 10th & 12th for 2018? Most important of all, who is answerable for all this ?
The Education System in India, especially in UP Board for Class 10th & 12th even after reformations is heading towards its doom if steps in the right direction are not taken at the right time !
