According to the Board officials, around 270,000 students failed to secure passing marks in Hindi in Intermediate, while 528,000 students in High School failed in their Hindi paper.
Around 239,000 students of High School and Intermediate of the Board had skipped their Hindi papers.
A high school teacher who evaluated Hindi copies for class 12, said on condition of anonymity, “Many of the children did not know simple words like ‘atmavishwas’ and wrote ‘confidence’, albeit with a wrong spelling. Some of them wrote ‘suffer’ for ‘yatra’. This reflects their level of the knowledge of the language,” she said.
She further said that majority of the students tend to ignore Hindi because they feel there is no need to study the language which does not offer future prospects.
Board officials, meanwhile, said that the number of students failing in Hindi was around 1 million last year. Around 5.6 million students had appeared in the Board examinations of the UP Board this year.
