"Those who have made the date sheet did not think about the pressure it will impose on students", said Manasi Rath, a mathematics teacher.

As the date sheet for the Uttar Pradesh Board Of Secondary & Higher Education (UPMSP Board) High School class 10 examination has now been officially declared, the students can also download the exam date sheet for future reference and making sure that they prepare for the right exam as any miscommunication can prove fatal for their career. Both the subjects are important for the students and demand proper revision. "This is a petition for the CBSE to change the current datesheet (for class 10 and 12 board exams) and make it more lenient", the petition reads. "There should be at least four to five days gap between two papers", said Anima Das, a humanity teacher in Vidyalaya-1. The 3 main papers are being conducted consecutively. Students are now concerned that they may not be able to perform well and this may affect their 12th Board result.

Besides, the JEE exam will be held on April 8 in the middle of the exam, giving more tension to the students. "Political science and legal studies on consecutive days and only one day gap for Physical Education for humanities students". The thought of appearing for JEE Main and then immediately for Physical Education is exhausting enough for the students. "The board must consider students' problem and give adequate gap between the subjects", said Abhisek, a class XII student.

However, the board clarified that it can not change the schedule according to the competitive exams as they were aiming to finish the exams soon for accurate evaluation.

According to CBSE, the early end of the exams will help candidates shift the focus on competitive exams. Hence, the Board must have also taken it into consideration.
