Students’ future uncertain due to OCE’s negligence

Bhaktapur, June 23

Negligence on the part of the Office of the Controller of Examinations has shrouded the students’ future in uncertainty.

On June 16, results of the Secondary Education Examination were announced following which the office has witnessed a large number of students submitting applications for correction in their mark-sheets.

The students of Manakamana English Secondary School received mark-sheets that contained results of subjects they never took exams for. School principal Sri Ram Acharya said such errors were found in the mark-sheets of three students from his school.

Sandesh Sangmi, one of the students, rued that his dream of studying medical science was shattered. “Everyone is concerned at my home, I had always stood first in the class and had felt I would get pretty good results in the SEE. My family wants me to become a doctor, but now my dream and my family’s happiness have been shattered,” Sangmi said.

The college which had promised Sangmi scholarship has now turned its back on him, Acharya shared.

Likewise, Sitaram Tajale of Kamalbinayak is anxious ever since he got the mark-sheet without the result for Optional Mathematics that he had appeared for.

“I attended Optional Mathematics paper. However, on the mark-sheet, it’s written Optional Economics. I have got C plus.  I had expected to get an A plus,” he said.

When asked, Examination Controller Ambika Prasad Regmi admitted to negligence, pledging that his office would rectify the mistakes in the days to come.

He also suggested that students apply for mark-sheet corrections. Students who were not satisfied with their score could pay Rs 500 per subject and apply for re-check, he informed.
