Chairman of the National Examination Board Pvt. Dr. A task force led by Chandramani Poudel has recommended conducting Secondary Education Examination (SEE) in the last week of June.
In the report submitted by the task force to the Minister of Education, Science, and Technology Giriraj Mani Pokharel on Thursday, it is mentioned that the SEE examination can be conducted from the last week of June if the model of lockdown is different after 25 April. The source said, “The test can be done till July 15.”
It is also recommended to conduct SEE and Class 12 examinations at the same time (two shifts).
A total of four lakh 82 thousand 707 students will participate in the SEE examination. 1 thousand 995 examination centers were designated to conduct the examination on March 6. However, due to the coronavirus (Covid-19), it was decided to postpone the SEE exam only on the evening of March 20.
Now, the task force has recommended to add more sub-centers and take security measures so that the examinees can reach the examination center after eating at home. Even so, some schools in Himalayan and hilly districts will be recognized as examination centers. “There will be no problem as the central chairperson and the inspector will not belong to the same school,” said a ministry official.
The task force also concluded that the results of the examination could be published within 45 days instead of 69 days.
According to the task force, the class 11 examination is conducted only after some time.
Results within April 25
Similarly, the results of the annual examination from class 1 to 9 will be published by April 10.
The Ministry of Education has urged the Ministries of Social Development of the state as well as the umbrella organizations of private schools to publish the results as soon as possible.
