The National Examination Board on Sunday decided to indefinitely postpone the Grade XII board exams for the second time this year as the country continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Board, in response to the recommendation of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, decided to postpone the exams indefinitely .
NEB Chairman Chandra Mani Poudel has informed that the decision was taken to ensure the safety of students. “The board will conduct the examination after the pandemic comes under control.”
But, it is not certain when that will happen,” Poudel added. He also informed that the board would publish the examination schedule at least 15 days prior to the examination date. The examination was suppose to start from August 15. The examination was initially scheduled to begin from June 9, which was cancelled owing to the second wave of the COVID pandemic. The repeated cancellation of examination and lack of physical classes has led to a great loss to the Grade XII students.
