Rabindra Dhungel, 18 august 2020. Stating that the school has given arbitrary marks, the National Examination Board has made public the results of SEE without the overall GPA details. The board has hidden the details of how many students have passed in which GPA out of 472,078 students. The board meeting held on Monday verified the internal evaluation done by the school and made the results public.
A total of four lakh 82 thousand nine hundred and 86 students had applied for the examination in the SEE of the year 076 BS and the marks of four lakh 72 thousand 78 students were obtained in the board. A total of 459,275 students participated in the SEE of 075 BS.
The government had decided to give the grade sheets based on the internal evaluation of the school as the corona infection was on the rise and quarantine was imposed in the schools. Earlier, the schedule for conducting the SEE examination from April 22 was made public. However, the test was postponed the day before as Corona’s risk increased. The question papers that were found near the center were returned and kept at the police office.
The board has not made public the overall GPA details of the students participating in the SEE. According to the source, the GPA details have not been extracted by analyzing that the schools have given arbitrary numbers and the public may have a negative impact on the students saying that it is a ‘corona batch’.
We did not process the details from the computer after the board told us not to extract the details of the GP, ”said Ram Raj Khakurel, Controller of Examinations, Class 10 Examination Control Office under the board. He said that the details including GPL were not released as there was no examination at the national level. So, educationist P.D. Balachandra Luintel said that the board did not analyze the overall data and delayed the publication of SEE results. “Now that the SEE results have been made public, it’s just a matter of time. The results had to be made public by analyzing the data from the system to understand the status of the exam and for future improvements.
How did the school conduct an internal assessment after hiding the data without analyzing it? Good or bad? How do you know the trend last year and now? ‘He said. Luintel says that if the data is analyzed, it will not only help in exams, but also in improving the quality of education and the institution. With the government’s decision to issue grade sheets based on the school’s internal assessment, parents began pressuring teachers and the school to give their children higher grades. According to sources, ordinary schools have given higher marks to students than big schools.
No reuse and no upgrade
As the results have been made public on the basis of internal assessment and verification by the school, there will be no re-examination and grade promotion examination for the students participating in the 076 examination. If the result of the student is postponed due to various reasons, if there is an error in the name, surname and date of birth, the application has to be submitted to the Education Development and Coordination Unit within 35 days with the recommendation of the concerned school.
Career problems if internal evaluation is not right
The results of the SEE affect not only the student’s GPA and the grade he or she got in each subject, but also his or her overall career. Experts say that if the internal assessment is not correct, the student may experience lifelong stress. According to Nandlal Poudel, head of the Education Development and Coordination Unit, Kathmandu, there are more students bringing GPA 4 and higher GPA in this year’s SEE than in the past. Pabson chairperson Tikaram Puri said that if the internal assessment of the school was not done properly, there would be problems in the career of the students. “If the internal assessment is not correct, the student may face stress even in the future career. Because the students will be admitted in class 11 based on the result of SEE, ‘he said.
The subject of choosing in class 11 after SEE also affects the future of the student. Admission for higher education is based on the subjects studied in class 11 and 12. The grade and GPA obtained in SEE is used as the basis for admission in class 11. There is a criterion for enrollment in science group based on high GPA and grade in a certain subject. Experts say that weaker students may get higher GPA and enroll in class 11 in science and may not be able to study.
However, the Chairman of the National Examination Board, P.D. Chandramani Poudel, on the other hand, said that the same grade obtained in this year’s SEE would not show the same ability of the students as they were not assessed on the same standard. He said that it was a sensitive issue as students would be admitted in class 11 based on their SEE results.

Educationist P.D. Balachandra Luintel says, “Anything can be done after hiding the data.”
Now that the SEE results have been made public, it has only been a trickle down the drain. The results had to be made public by analyzing the data from the system to understand the status of the exam and for future improvements. How did the school conduct an internal assessment after hiding the data without analyzing it? Good or bad? How to know the trend of last year and now? Shouldn’t the center evaluated by the school analyze the data? Trying to hide weaknesses or strengths is a big mistake.
Seeing the announcement of the results of the current SEE, it was like running away from the system. Data should be analyzed even after the exam. The grade had to be analyzed before the result could be obtained. If the data was analyzed, not only the exam but also the reading and the weakness of the institution would be helped. After hiding the data, whatever is done can be done. The data on the number of high, medium and low GPAs and the situation in the state should have been transparent. The country has never been colonized by anyone, but our education is in the shadow of colonization. There was ignorance about the exam.
The government missed the opportunity to improve the National Examination Board system. Properly analyzing the current data, it would be helpful to plan what we did in the event of an emergency. From a new magazine daily
