EXCLUSIVE | UP Board Exam Results 2017: Is UP going Bihar way?
Lucknow: Not many days have passed since education was shamed in Bihar where some ineligible students had topped the board examinations by allegedly exploiting the system. In a similar instance in Uttar Pradesh, some Class 12 students, who have scored excellent marks, were seen in trouble when a newstrack.com reporter asked them a very basic maths formula.
The UP Board Class 10 and Class 12 examination results 2017 were announced on Friday afternoon.
When a newstrack.com reporter asked a simple maths formula to the mathematics toppers of Lucknow-based St. Meera’s Inter Collage, they looked panicked. Apart from that the meritorious Class 12 students, named Pallavi Yadav (93.8 per cent marks) and Simran Chaudhary (92.2 per cent marks) also failed to answer a few more simple questions.
It may be mentioned that Pallavi has scored maximum marks (96 out of 100) in maths, followed by Simran who secured 93 marks. Both of them, however, failed to answer one of the simplest mathematics methods to calculate the area of a triangle, the Heron's formula.
They also could not clearly answer a few questions related to physics and chemistry subjects.
Pallavi Yadav has secured 93.8 per cent marks in UP Board Class 12 board examination. She has scored 86 marks in Hindi, 96 in Math, 95 in Computer, 96 in Physics and 96 in Chemistry (out of 100 in each subject). She aspires to become an engineer in future.
Meanwhile, Simran Chowdhary has scored 92.2 per cent marks in Class 12 examination. She got 82 marks in Hindi, 93 in Maths, 94 in Computer, 96 in Physics and 96 in Chemistry (out of 100 in each subject).
The authenticity of the school (St. Meera's Inter Collage) has been questionable in the past as well. UP Child Protection Commission had also issued a notice against its owner Vinod Ratra. If sources are to be believed, the school has connections in the UP Board from which yields it favours choosing favourable examination centres during board exams.
