The National Examinations Board at Sanothimi, Bhaktapur, said that the Board would make public the results of this year's Secondary Education Examination by August 9.

Preparation is under way to publish the result on the basis of internal evaluation of students by the respective schools within the stipulated time, said the Board's Office of the Controller of Examinations (Grade 10) Exam Controller Rudra Adhikari.

The Office had already received the grades of students whose evaluation was done internally by the school concerned on the basis of their academic performance in the classroom and exams.

Due to the growing risk of COVID-19 and prohibitory order imposed by the government to contain the pandemic, the government had decided to publish the result of the SEE on the basis of internal evaluation.

The Office was currently tallying the grades (evaluation) and would publish the result within one week if there were no technical glitches.

According to the Office, more than 517,000 students had completed the requisition forms for SEE for 2020. The results of the students who attended the SEE in 2019 were also made public last year on the basis of internal evaluation owing to the risk of COVID-19.
