All exams of educational institutions including the Tribhuvan University have been suspended or postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Meanwhile, the government has also decided to allow professional and vocational training institutes to resume their short-term vocational or skill training by following health safety protocols. However, such training providers should not operate classes exceeding more than 25 trainees in a class.
