The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) will conduct the state board half-yearly exams for classes 9 and 10 in the third week of November. For these classes, it will be the first time the half-yearly exam will be held in a new pattern.
The UP Board will conduct the exam in multiple-choice questions (MCQs) format meaning students will be provided an OMR sheet instead of an answer sheet. The exam for classes 9 and 10 will comprise 70 marks out of which there will be objective questions of 20 marks and the remaining 50 marks will be for subjective questions, as per the official notice of the board. For each correct answer, students will be given one mark. There will be 30 marks for internal assessment as well.
