An article with the screenshot of a News18 report is widely shared on social media claiming that Yogi Adithyanath’s government in Uttar Pradesh will hold special examinations for 10e and 12e students in the class. The post even claims through the screenshot that the students who were promoted in 10e and 12e must pass a special examination if one aspires to a job in the public service. Let’s check the claim made in the mail.

Claim: The UP government has notified a “special examination” for 10e and 12e students in the class aspiring to government jobs.

Do: The UP government had not notified a “special examination” for 10e and 12e students in the class aspiring to government jobs. A notification was issued by the government of Assam that no student would be able to apply for a position in the state government if they did not apply for the “special examination”. However, it was decided on July 08, 2021 that this “special examination” would be abolished, after opposition from various student organizations. Therefore, the claim made by post is FALSE.

We searched for news articles on the claim made in the post and found the original News18 report published on July 7, 2021. The article talks about a notification issued by the Assam government and not the UP government.

Due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, state governments across the country canceled the board exams for students in grades 10 and 12. Thus, a notification was issued by the government of ‘Assam notifying a special examination. According to the notification issued by the government of Assam, no student could apply for a post in the state government if they did not apply for this special examination.

However, this idea of ​​a special exam has been contested by various student organizations. Subsequently, Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma held a meeting with representatives of AASU (All Assam Students ‘Union), ABSU (All Bodo Students’ Union) and AJYCP (Asom Jatiyatabadi Yuba Chatra Parishad) to discuss the alternative assessment method needed. by canceling the 10e and 12e exams. Therefore it was decided on 08 July 2021 that this “special examination” (alternative evaluation formula according to article 5 of the government notification) would be deleted.

There is no report on the UP government notifying a “special examination” for 10e and 12e students in the class aspiring to government jobs.

In short, the UP government did not notify a “special examination” for 10e and 12e students in the class aspiring to government jobs.
