Rabindra Dhungel, 30 september 2020. Although various options have been recommended for conducting the Class 12 examination, which has been postponed due to covid-19, the decision has been delayed. If the National Examination Board is not in a position to take the Corona exam, last month with the option of online examination of 40 marks out of 100 integers, experimental marks of 20 marks and counting of total marks of class 11 to the remaining 40 marks or internal assessment without examination Was suggested. Although the suggestion has reached the Council of Ministers through the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, parents and students are confused as no decision has been taken so far. It is unlikely that the test will be held ten years before an immediate decision is made.
After ten years, it will be more difficult to conduct exams in the Himalayan district. In such a situation, it is said that the option of internal assessment and certification of class 11 results with 50/50 percent may be strong. Since the online book exam for the forty numbers will be an open book exam, questions have been raised about its reliability and the possibility of online access to all places. Minister for Education Giriraj Mani Pokharel had told the RSS a few days ago that he was in favor of holding the Class 12 examination board examination and that it should have an international equivalent.
If there is an online exam, questions have arisen such as how much time for the exam, where to place the exam center, how to deliver the question to the students, how to collect and evaluate the answer scripts and when to publish the results. The government has already issued the Student Learning Facilitation Directive-2077 on September 6 to make it accessible to those who do not have access to online and use other means of information technology. Spokesperson of the Ministry Deepak Sharma said that nothing can be said about the issue unless a decision is taken by the Council of Ministers.
The examination scheduled for April 22 was postponed due to the bandh on April 25. A total of 432,000 students had applied for the exam. The board has already published the information on September 10 and requested the students who have applied for the class 12 examination to provide details within seven days if they have migrated to other districts due to corona epidemic or other reasons.
Earlier, the board had already verified the Secondary Education Examination (SEE) class 10 by conducting internal evaluation from the school on the basis of the decision of the Council of Ministers. After the implementation of the Eighth Amendment to the Education Act (2028 BS) in 2073 BS, the then Higher Secondary Education Council was disbanded and transformed into the National Examination Board.
