52 percent of students rejected for higher education

Kathmandu - 52 percent i.e. 1 lakh 88 thousand 410 students have been classified as non-grading (NG) in the results of the final school level examination of class 12. They were rejected for higher education. Among them, 130,878 (36 percent) candidates who were not graded in only two subjects will have the opportunity to participate in the grade increase exam on October 30 and 31.

Those who score at least 1.6 GPA in both subjects in the said examination will open the door to higher education studies. In order to participate in the grade increase examination, one must have obtained a grade higher than 'D' in other subjects. According to the letter grading system, NG is mentioned if at least 35 percent marks are not obtained in theory in each subject.

The National Examination Board has announced the results of 12th according to letter grading system 2078 on Friday. According to the results, 16 percent i.e. 57,000 students will have to retake the exam for all the subjects of class 12 next year. Previously, in the letter grading system of 2072, there was a provision that grade enhancement exams could be given for 3 years only in those subjects in which a low grade was obtained in more than two subjects. From this year, for the first time in the applicable system, non-grad students who have obtained a good GPA in a subject are also required to take all the exams again.

3 lakh 36 thousand 8 people participated in the examination conducted from June 16th to 25th on the regular side. Out of them only 174 thousand 598 people (48 percent) will get admission in the university. Durga Prasad Aryal, member secretary of the board, claimed that the exam results cannot be called disappointing after such an uncomfortable situation as Covid. Due to the covid epidemic, after two years, the board conducted the exam itself as before 2076.

In 2077 and 2078, the school itself and the external examiner tested the answer sheets by conducting the exam at the home center. Compared to 2076, this year's results are seen to have dropped even more. Deviram Acharya, a researcher of school education, said that even though learning has deteriorated due to Covid, the stakeholders are not ready to accept it.

Like in 2076, this time also the number of students who get 4 out of 4 GPA is zero. In 2077, when the answer book was tested at school, 47 people got 4 GPA. In 2078, even when the answer book was checked by an external examiner, there were zero students who got 4 GPA. In 2076, only 16,500 or 5 percent of students were stopped from enrolling in higher education because they had a GPA of less than 1.6. This time the number has reached 52 percent. At that time, 292,000 candidates took the exam.

Tribhuvan University professor Prem Fak said that the result raises the question that there is a problem in school education itself. 'What did we teach the children if the results were not good even after studying for 12 years?' Questioning, he said, 'Students should not be blamed, it is too late to reconsider to strengthen the teaching and learning foundation of school education.' He says that after the publication of the results, there is a decrease in the efforts to analyze them and improve them.

Analyzing the results published by the board, it is seen that students are weak in English, social studies, Nepali, accounting, economics, business studies and other subjects. More than 1 lakh 1 thousand students have been non-graded in compulsory English. After that, the results of 66,000 students in the subject of accounting have been non-graded.

54,000 in social studies, 32,000 in Nepali, more than 27,500 in economics, and 19,500 in business studies were not graded as they could not even get 35% marks. 17 thousand 754 in optional Nepali, 17 thousand 460 in teaching method, 11 thousand 467 in education have received non-grading results. However, on the practical side, only 4 in English, 2 in accounting, 3 in social, and 4 in Nepali have mentioned NG.

Officials of the board say that even the weak students are given kust numbers by the teachers on the experimental side. Earlier, the experimental and theoretical numbers were combined and the results were published. Faik, professor of English Department, pointed out that many students fail in English, Nepali and other language subjects because the foundation of school education is not strong.

In a study conducted by the Educational Quality Testing Center on students of classes 5, 8 and 10, it was found that the learning achievement was only around 50 percent. The reflection of the lower class is seen in class 12 and is also seen in higher education, said Prof. Fak. "It is not enough to analyze the results of class 12, students studying in class 5 cannot write their name in English, those studying in class 10 cannot write their school name in English properly," he said.

According to the overall results, there are 4,189 students (1.15 percent) who have GPA 3.61 to 4 this time. From 3.21 to 3.60 30 thousand 107 people (8.3 percent), from 2.81 to 3.20 65 thousand 284 (17.98 percent), from 2.41 to 2.80 64 1093 (17.66 percent), 10,900 (3.0 percent) from 2.01 to 2.40, 35 from 1.61 to 2.0 and 1.21 to 1.60 GPA The board said that the number of students is zero. According to the board, the examination center will be designated in the district/district. Arrangements will be made to send the question paper online as in the annual examination.

30 thousand 45 candidates participated in the grade increase and 3 thousand 132 candidates participated in the partial part. Exam Controller Krishna Prasad Sharma said that only 41 percent of the students passed the partial exam. The examination of 38 people on the regular side has been cancelled.

After publishing the results on Friday evening, it was arranged that the results could be viewed only from the website of the Board and Nepal Telecom. Students and parents complained that they were able to find out the results late at night. According to the board, the transcript, migration, provisional certificate will be provided only after 15 days.
