A day before, the board defended the class 10 and 12 board exam 2018 date sheets after an outcry from students about the unfair scheduling of the exams. 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.

Apart from the students, even some teachers and parents have expressed disappointment with the date sheet. According to the board, Class 12 board exams will start from February 28 while the Class 10 board exams will begin from March 12. "There should be at least four to five days gap between two papers", said Anima Das, a humanity teacher in Vidyalaya-1.

As per the datesheet, history paper is scheduled on March 20 followed by mathematics on March 21. Psychology paper is scheduled for April 05, Political Science will be conducted on April 06 and on April 07, 2018, the candidates will appear for Legal Studies.

Though CBSE states that it has prepared the datasheet so that the candidates can prepare for entrance examinations, the paper for Physical Education is just after JEE Main 2018 offline exam.
