National Examination Board (NEB) to Announce SEE 2079/2080 Results on Third Week of Ashad
The National Examination Board (NEB) is set to announce the results of the Secondary Education Examination (SEE) for the academic year 2079/2080 during the third week of Ashad. The results are keenly awaited by a whopping four lakh 85 thousand 396 students from 12,083 schools who took part in the examinations.
Answer Sheet Evaluation and Result Compilation
At present, the NEB is diligently working on checking the answer sheets and finalizing the results. According to the Board's Controller of Examinations (Class 10), Mr. Vishnunarayan Shrestha, the process of transporting the answer sheets and tallying the results at the central office is nearing its completion.
In order to streamline the evaluation process, 51 designated centers across the nation have been involved in scrutinizing the answer sheets. Post-examination, these answer sheets are sent to the respective centers. Once all answer sheets are received and duly recorded, the data is entered into a computer system to compute the results.
SEE Examination Details
The SEE examinations were held from March 31, 2023, to April 12, 2023, involving almost equal participation from male and female students - two lakh 42 thousand 674 and two lakh 42 thousand 712 respectively. Intriguingly, this time the SEE examination was held in Japan as well as Nepal, thus widening the geographical footprint of the examination.
Contemplations on Grading Guidelines
One key issue that is yet to be settled is the grading guideline to be employed. Last year, the Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology revised the grading guidelines, mandating a minimum score of 35 percent for theoretical components and a minimum of 40 percent for practical components.
As per the revised guidelines, students scoring less than 35 were labeled as 'non-graded', effectively barring them from admission into class 11. The earlier guidelines, however, permitted those with less than 20 marks, tagged as 'E', to seek admission to class 11.
Due to several students being categorized as ungraded under the revised guidelines, the board reverted to the old grading system while announcing results last year. This time around, the board, under the guidance of Chairman Dr. Mahashram Sharma, will decide which grading guidelines - old or revised - will be followed when publishing the results.
Stay tuned for further updates on the SEE 2079/2080 results and the grading guidelines that will be implemented this time.
