Kathmandu: The National Examination Board (NEB) has postponed the SEE and Class 12 examinations. The board meeting held on Monday morning has decided to postpone the SEE examination to be conducted from May 27 and the class 12 examination to be conducted from June 09.

Chairman of the board Chandra Mani Poudel informed that both the examinations have been postponed till further notice. “The government has also said not to conduct the exam. The COVID-19 has also increased, it is not under control and the exam cannot be conducted in this situation. It has been postponed for now. We will issue another notice when the exam is held,” he said.

The printing of question papers for the SEE, which will start on May 27, has been completed. 5 lakh 17 thousand students are preparing for SEE. Board members said that the examination could not be conducted in 2 thousand 19 examination centers across the country as the situation was out of control. The class 12 examination to be held from June 09 is also in doubt. With months to go before the exams, but due to the pandemic, most of the districts are under lockdown. About 4 lakh candidates are in class 12.

An arrangement has been made to send question papers online for class 12 this year. Last year, the examination was conducted at the home-based examination center by sending question papers online during the Corona pandemic. This year, it is preparing to take the exam by sending question papers only to certain examination centers that have access to internet facilities. Last year too, due to the corona pandemic, the board had given the results to the SEE candidates on the basis of the internal evaluation done by the school.

Similarly, the board meeting has also formed a five-member task force to study how to conduct SEE and class 12 examinations. A task force has been formed under the coordination of the Director-General of the Center for Education and Human Resource Development Baikuntha Aryal.

The board has stated that a task force has been formed to decide the modalities of proceeding in case the corona’s infection persists and the examination is not conducted in physical presence.
