The National Examination Board has prepared to announce the results of last year’s Secondary Education Examination (SEE) in the third week of June.
According to the board, now the work is going on to check the answer sheet and get the result. According to Board’s Controller of Examinations (Class 10) Vishnunarayan Shrestha, the work of bringing the answer sheets and results to the central office has reached the final stage.
The board has designated 51 centers across the country for examination of answer sheets. The answer sheet should be sent to the center after testing it at the center. Exam controller Shrestha said that after receiving the answer sheets from all centers, they will be entered into the computer.
Four lakh 85 thousand 396 examinees from 12 thousand 83 schools participated in the examination which was conducted from 17th to 29th of Chait last year. In which the number of male and female students was two lakh 42 thousand 674 and two lakh 42 thousand 712 respectively. This time SEE was conducted in Japan along with Nepal.
This time, when the results are published, the issue of which guidelines to use regarding letter marking has not been decided yet. Last year, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology revised the guidelines on alphabetization and made arrangements to bring a minimum of 35 percent for theoretical and a minimum of 40 percent for practical.
The guidelines closed the way for admission in class 11 to those who scored less than 35 as ‘non-graded’, while the old guidelines opened the way for admission to class 11 by treating those who scored less than 20 marks as ‘E’.
Last year, when the results were published according to the revised guidelines, the board announced the results according to the old guidelines after seeing that many students were ungraded. Chairman of the Board Dr. Mahashram Sharma said that this time too, the board will decide whether to publish the results according to the old or revised guidelines. This news is in Gorkhapatra daily.
