A month on, OCE yet to publish subject-wise analysis of SEE results
Kathmandu, July 25
The Office of the Controller of Examinations has not yet published subject-wise analysis of Secondary Education Examination results of 2018.
It has already been more than a month since the Office of the Controller of Examinations published SEE results.
According to National Examination Board Chairperson Chandra Mani Paudel, Ministry of Education, Science and Technology attributed the delay in publishing subject-wise result analysis to late appointment of new controller Ram Saran Sapkota. “We were busy making corrections in the results as per the complaints registered from all 77 districts during all these days,” he added.
Paudel said they could not publish the result analysis also because there were thousands of applications filed for re-checking the answer sheets.
“Despite our willingness to publish subject-wise result analysis of Secondary Education Examination, we were unable to publish it on time. We are trying to publish the result analysis as soon as possible,” said Paudel.
On June 23, the Office of the Controller of Examinations published the Secondary Education Examination results, which was found erroneous later.
A probe committee formed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology for investigation into the erroneous result submitted a report to Minister of Education, Science and Technology Giriraj Mani Pokharel. The report had held Controller Ambika Prasad Regmi responsible for the mistakes in the results.
“Within these 33 days, controller was changed twice so we were unable to publish the subject-wise analysis of SEE results,” added Paudel.
Meanwhile, educationist Bidhyanath Koirala claimed that subject-wise result analysis would be of no use if necessary changes were not made to improvements on the basis of the analysis.
“Subject-wise result analysis of Secondary Education Examination of earlier years showed that most of the students were weak in mathematics and science while Madhesi students were weak in Nepali, but the government did nothing to improve the situation,” he added.
“Delay in publishing subject-wise result analysis shows that the government hardly bothers about learning from previous mistakes,” Koirala said, adding that the subject-wise result analysis was useful for researchers, education experts to suggest necessary reforms in the education system.
