Evaluation System

Evaluation and Assessment is an integral component of any teaching-learning system. The Government of India in 1990 vested UPSOSB with the authority to examine and certify students up to pre-degree level, and thus, UPSOSB became one of the National Boards of Examination. It is the only Board which conducts two full-fledged examinations every year during April/May and October/Novermber. UPSOSB has been conducting its public examinations since 2013.

Unique Features of the UPSOSB Examination System

UPSOSB does not have the infrastructure of its own. It shares the infrastructure and human resources of the institutions established by the public sector and private sector to conduct its examinations without disturbing their academic schedule.

UPSOSB gives a lot of flexibility to the students in matters related to examination such as (no compulsion of appearing in all the subjects at the same examination) appearing in one or more subjects in the examination as per the convenience, credit accumulation of the passed subjects, nine chances to appear in the public examinations over a period of five years, and transfer of credit of two subjects passed from other selected boards and up to four subjects in the case of ex-UPSOSB learners.

A student is allowed to write answers in the examination in any of the scheduled languages of India except language papers even if he/she has not opted for that medium.

A student can appear in On Demand Examination at Secondary level and Senior Secondary level examination any number of times as per his/her convenience.
