Kathmandu, February 13

Although the Education Act (ninth amendment) has given the responsibility of conducting Secondary Education Examination to the provinces, the National Examination Board is preparing to conduct the exam on its own this year too. SEE will begin from March 24 this year.

As per the Education Act, local levels are responsible for conducting examinations up to Grade VIII, provinces for conducting Grade X exam, and the NEB for holding Grade XI and XII exams. The NEB said it would conduct the examination from 1,961 exam centres. Sixty-two sub-examination centres have been fixed for selected teachers to check answer-sheets.

Similarly, question papers will be printed from March 17 by Janak Education Material Centre.

The NEB said it would print different sets of question papers for each provinces. However, question papers of 149 optional subjects will be the same throughout the country.

Examination Controller of National Education Board Bishnu Prasad Adhikari said, “NEB is conducting the SEE this year as the provinces have yet to get required infrastructure.”

A total of 511,000 regular students have registered for the SEE this year. The government has allocated Rs 26 million for all seven provinces and Rs 23 million for the central government to conduct the exam. The government had dissolved the Office of the Controller of Examinations to form National Education Board.
