NewsMobile fact-checked the post and found the claim to be false.

We ran a Google search to look for media reports regarding the same and found a report by NDTV dated May 20, 2021.

The report stated that a ‘fake’ date sheet of Class 10 and Class 12 is circulating on social media platforms.

“It is informed that the high school (Class 10) and intermediate (Class 12) examinations date sheet of the year 2021 was being circulated on WhatsApp dated 17-5-2021 which says that examinations will be held from 05 June 2021 to 25 June 2021. This timetable is absolutely fake. FIR will be registered against those who have circulated this fake news,” NDTV quoted the Board Secretary Divya Kant Shukla as saying.

We then checked the website of the Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad and found a notice dated May 17, 2021, where it has been clarified that the viral news is fake.

The official handle of Uttar Pradesh Fact Check also rubbished the viral claim.
#FakeAlert: The schedule of UP Board high school and intermediate exams is being viral on some WhatsApp groups and social media. #InfoUPFactCheck In this regard, the Secondary Education Council, Uttar Pradesh has clarified that such messages are completely fake,” the tweet read. 
Moreover, we did not find any updated datasheet or information regarding the Uttar Pradesh Class 10 and 12 Board examinations, released recently by the concerned authorities.

This proves that the viral claim and the date sheet in circulation is fake.
