As the new Education Act, 2016 (2073) has been implemented, the SLC examination will take place in Grade 10 as national level examination whereas the examination of Grade 10 will be known as secondary education Examination (S.E.E). Before an introduction of SEE, it was known to be school leaving certificate popularly abbreviated as SLC. It is final examination taken in the secondary school system of Nepal, equivalent to GCSE, the academic qualification in the UK, and Matriculation in India.
Each student is mandatory to go through SEE examination for higher studies. SEE exam dates are usually scheduled for the month of March – April. After two and a half months or even three months after the completion of the SEE, the results are published by the Examination Control Board.
Officially, the students will not ‘fail’; there is no provision for an F grade. But there is a provision for categorizing unsatisfactory performance. If a student scores less than a GPA of 1.6 and fails to achieve a D+ grade in at least one subject, he or she will be ineligible for promotion to grade 11.
Examination centers are allotted by Office of Controller Examination (OCE), Sanothimi, Bhaktapur established under the Government of Nepal/Ministry of Education and Sports.
