By A Staff Reporter
Kathmandu, Mar. 22: This year’s Secondary Education Examination (SEE) is going to begin from Sunday.
According to the the National Examination Board, 474,003 students from across the country are appearing in the examination.
Unlike in the past, the responsibility to mange the SEE examination has been given to the State Government from this year. Earlier, the central government used to manage the examination.
The State governments themselves have managed the answer sheets and exam centres this year. The Ministry of Education of the Federal Government has already allocated the required budget in all States to hold the annual examination.
However, the National Examination Board itself prepared the question papers for all States. The Board stated that it had completed all preparations for the examination. A total of 1,969 examination centers have been fixed across the nation.
Bishnu Adhikari, examination controller, informed that the board managed State-wise question sets for six compulsory subjects. The examination would conclude on April 4.
About 37,000 examinees are appearing in the examination from Kathmandu district. It is the highest number of students appearing in the SEE from a single district, Adhikari said.
Likewise, only 56 examinees are going to appear in the examination from a single centre in Manang district.
The name of School Leaving Certificate (SLC) was converted into Secondary Education Examination (SEE) after the government included up to grade twelve under the school level education.
Earlier, final examination of grade 10 (SLC) used to be conducted by the Office of the Controller of the Examination (OCE). Now the National Examination Board conducts the SEE.
