Fatehpur: On the lines of CBSE board, the UP Board of Secondary Education will also implement grading system in class X examinations from the year 2011.

"Draft of the grading system has been prepared and it will be implemented in 2011 board examinations. Besides, there will only be one question paper for each subject," Secondary Education Minister Rangnath Mishra told reporters on Saturday.

He said that the high school students will be required to appear in five papers only.

The minister said stern action has been taken against examination centres from where complaints of mass copying in previous exams were received and henceforth such centres will be derecognised.

"Now the district inspectors of school cannot fix examination centres, all the powers have been delegated to the district committee," he said.

He said that a draft of national secondary education campaign is also ready.

"It has been decided to set up a higher secondary school after every five kms and an intermediate college after every seven kms. For this, junior schools are being upgraded," Mishra said.

He also said that vacant posts of lecturers and LT grade in government and aided schools will be filled soon.
