After the postponement of the date of release, the answer keys of UPTET 2017 exam have been finally released. The answer keys have been made available today on upbasiceduboard.gov.in, Uttar Pradesh’s official website for education.
Uttar Pradesh Exam Regulatory Authority had conducted the exam on 15th October this year. The authority had uploaded the answer keys on its official website on 17th October. However, the candidates were unable to download those documents as the heavy load resulted in server downtime.
A total of 10,09,347 candidates applied for the UPTET 2017 examination but only 9.76 lakh candidates were allowed to appear for the exam. While proceeding to the exam centres, many candidates faced heavy traffic on Delhi-Yamunotri highway.
Exam coordinators didn’t allow the candidates to sit for the exam as the aspirants failed to reach the centres on time. Exam had already started and the candidates weren’t allowed to sit for the exam.
Out of 9.76 candidates, 6,27,568 for upper primary and 3,49,192 for primary had registered for the examination.
Sources told that 8 people were caught impersonating in the examination. Apart from this fraudulent behaviour of some candidates, many aspirants reported of errors in the hall ticket (admit card) of the exam.
