On the last day, each examiner will have to bring the answer scripts and other confidential material including question paper, marking scheme etc and submit the same.

This year, the board has also set-up class 9 and class 11 question papers centrally, however, the checking of answer script for these classes will be done at the respective schools only. The board is responsible for checking class 10 and class 12 board answer scripts.

The move will ensure that the result is declared on time. Several major boards including the UP Board, have put the evaluation process on halt to put a curb on spread of coronavirus.
