Kathmandu, May 31

The Ministry of Education has proposed conducting the secondary education examinations (SEE) through internal evaluation of the schools this year also.

A meeting of the ministry officials on Monday decided to table a proposal in this regard at the cabinet meeting seeking approval, informs Education Minister Krishna Gopal Shrestha’s press coordinator Ishwar Raj Dhakal.

“The ministry meeting decided to send a proposal to conduct the exams via internal evaluation as in the same way,” Dhakal says.

The certificates, however, will be issued by the National Examinations Board.

Once the schools evaluate the students, there will be a risk of generous scoring by the teachers as seen during the 12th-grade examinations last year.

The National Examinations Board had postponed the exams indefinitely citing the surge in the Covid-19 cases in the country. Although students and stakeholders have demanded doable alternatives as soon as possible, the government has been indecisive for a long time.
