UPMSP is among the few education boards which declared its results based on the exams conducted in an unimpeded manner. For central and most state boards, exams were halted due to the pandemic; some states are yet to reconduct those exams, while a few others have already cancelled them and will declare results based on past performance of students.
The board also started an online correction process in certificates, where students who appeared in the examinations from 2017 onwards can apply for changes in the certificates issued. Students can apply through the website - upmsp.edu.in, or through seva kendras in the state. The correction process is totally free. However, one has to pay Rs 100 in case of duplicate marksheets.
