Flawed English paper confuses students in Grade XII examinations

KATHMANDU: The question paper of the Compulsory English subject in the ongoing Grade XII examinations held by the Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB) was found to have multiple flaws.

National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) College student, Amir Chaulagain, who appeared in the exam at the Navodit Higher Secondary School, Samakhusi, said that the students were confused after the annual exam paper came out full of mistakes. The student questioned, "How can we give answers if the question paper is flawed?"

The Grade XII examinations had started today nationwide. The paper today required corrections at more than seven places.

Higher Secondary Schools' Association – Nepal (HISSAN), Kathmandu District Vice Chairman and English subject teacher, Rajendra Adhikari, said such a question paper would create fear and induce mental issues among the students. "It is not right that the HSEB is taking the examinations underway across the country in a light manner," he said.
