Vandana Mohan, a teacher, said, "When we contacted the board regarding the date-sheet, officials said that they can not come up with a time-table suitable for each child who opted for subjects from different streams as they are optional". The scarcity of the examination dates for the UP Board class 10 exams was prevailing for quite long time and it has now been finally released by the UP Board.

The hue and cry over the CBSE date-sheet by students of all the three streams, supported by teachers, has borne no fruit as CBSE officials ruled out any change in the schedule as over 12 lakh students have registered for the exams.

The students, parents and teachers have been raising demands for a changed datesheet, claiming that not enough gap has been given between subjects.
