He had said that “standard operating procedures (SOP)” would be issued to schools, districts and divisions apart from an overall statewide SOP, for the purpose of studies, evaluation and monitoring.
He had said that evaluation would be conducted every fortnight, month and annually. A question bank will be reportedly prepared by experts and uploaded on the official UP Board websites so students can check the question pattern.
How was the UP Board syllabus changed?
Multiple meetings were held under the supervision of the Director of Secondary Education Vinay Kumar Pandey for the syllabus reduction process.
Discussions were held with the experts and other members on the Curriculum Committee after which a proposal was sent.
