Kathmandu, December 30
The National Examinations Board says the Secondary Education Examinations (SEE) will be held between mid-May and mid-June next year for the current academic session.
Whereas the exams used to be held in late March every year, the Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent disturbances in the academic calendar will defer the exams by two months, says the board’s chairman Chandra Mani Paudel.
With a target to hold the exams by mid-June, the board issued a notice today, calling the schools and students to fill up examination forms.
“Classes should be conducted without giving any holidays and the exams should be done by mid-June,” Paudel says, “Otherwise, the academic year will go to waste.”
The exams were postponed at the 11th hour in the last session as the fear of coronavirus infection increased. Later, the government had authorised schools themselves to grade their students, which the National Examinations Board had certified.
