Kathmandu, June 14
Nepal Student Union (NSU), the student wing of the main opposition party Nepali Congress, has appealed to the government to not take the grade 11 examinations this year.
On Sunday, an NSU delegation met Education Minister Giriraj Mani Pokharel and submitted a memorandum requesting the grade 11 examinations be concluded with internal evaluation like the Secondary Education Examinations.
Meanwhile, for the grade 12 examinations, the NSU has requested the government to hold the examinations in the students’ own schools with monitoring from the nearest school after the risk of coronavirus infection gets low.
The team also demanded the grade 12 exams get a national examination standard, informs NSU General Secretary Deepak Bhattarai.
Furthermore, the NSU has demanded the new academic session be started with transmission of lessons via radio, television, newspapers and online mediums, during this pandemic.
