Kathmandu, December 29
The National Examination Board says it will public final results of the grade 12 examinations as soon as possible.
The exams, postponed from March-April due to the Covid-19 crisis were held in November only.
The board’s chairman Chandra Mani Paudel says he cannot specify the exact date for the results now, saying efforts are underway to publish the results as soon as possible. Earlier, the board had said the results would be announced within December.
Citing the pandemic, the board has introduced a whole new procedure to conduct these exams this year. As per the (Class 12) Student Evaluation, Examination Operation, Management, Documentation and Certification Working Procedure made public by the board, the 12th graders will be partially evaluated on the basis of the marks obtained by them in the grade 11 last year. Likewise, internal evaluations by the schools have also been given significant weight.
Educationists, teachers, and students have mixed views on this new modality.
