BHAKTAPUR, Jan 26: The National Examination Board (NEB) is set to conduct and release the results of this year's Secondary Education Examination (SEE) in accordance with the Letter Grading Directive of 2078 BS. The NEB has scheduled the SEE for this year to take place from March 28 to April 9. 

Dr Mahashram Sharma, Chairman of the NEB, informed Republica that the NEB has published the timetable for regular and grade enhancement exams during this period. He mentioned that class 10 students will undergo the exam based on the new syllabus and the results will adhere to the Letter Grading Directive of 2078 BS. He emphasized that students participating in this year's examination must attain a minimum of 35 percent marks in theory i.e., 35 marks in each subject.

According to him, students must score 35 percent in SEE now in order to study higher education. He said that students who  score less than 35 percent will be ungraded.

According to the directive, if a student scores less than 35 points in the theoretical section, they will be marked as unclassified (non-graded) on their results and the original certificate will not be issued. In such a situation, it has been arranged that one can get a chance to take a re-exam of two subjects up to three times.
