KATHMANDU, Jan 31: The Ministry of Education is preparing to amend the system to bar the students from being upgraded if they score less than D+ in grade eight. 

At a meeting of the Curriculum Development and Evaluation Council held Wednesday, discussions were held to ensure such system in the curriculum itself as the academic quality of the students would be poor if they score less than D+ in the examinations. 

The meeting chaired by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Education Gopalman Shrestha discussed the issues and concrete decision would be taken in the next meeting, Joint Spokesperson at the Ministry Sarswati Pokharel said. 

In the grading system of class 10 of the secondary education examination, the students can enrol in grade 11 in some subjects if the examinees score up to grade C. Pokharel also said that discussions were held whether local level or examination controller office were supposed to conduct the examinations.
