The UP board exams are set to begin on March 16 amid concerns that there are few invigilators to supervise the students. According to a national daily, the UP board has not sought the help of any primary teachers this year.

For 149 test centres across the State, the UP board has appointed just 4800 invigilators. The biggest concern is for self-financing schools, who have appointed their own teachers as invigilators. Government schools, on the other hand, are known to have enough invigilators. 19 government schools, 80 government-aided and 50 self finance schools are going to act like exam centres in the UP board exams in 2017.
