Grade 12 online examinations to be held for 40 marks

KATHMANDU: Examinations for Grade 12 students will be held online for 40 marks out of a total of 100 full marks. The examinations had been stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The National Examination Board (NEB) has recommended to the government to administer online examination for 40 marks, practical examinations for 20 marks and convert the total marks obtained by a student in Grade 11 for the remaining 40 marks out of 100 full marks.

According to the NEB, the decision was taken in the context of the increasing risk of the coronavirus.This decision will be implemented after the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology presents a proposal on this mixed examination system and gets an approval from the Council of Ministers.

An official at the Ministry has stated that the government will make a decision soon. The government has already issued the Student Learning Facilitation Guidelines-2077 with the provision that those not having internet access can use other means of information technology.

Talking to RSS today, the Examination Controller of the Board, Krishna Prasad Sharma, shared that the schedule of the online exam for 40 marks will be made public after preparing necessary work procedures and question papers after the government takes decision on this alternative if other alternatives are not possible.

Although students have yet to complete the exams within the determined time, they have facilities to use books and other sources. It will be a type of open exam as there will be no exam centre, supervisors and security personnel. The examination scheduled for April 20 had been postponed due to the lockdown imposed from March 24.

A total of 432,000 students have filled up the form for the examinations. The Board issuing a notice on September 11 has urged the students to provide details of migration within seven days if the students have migrated to other districts other than the one they were studying in due to the coronavirus pandemic or other reasons.
