Class 12 exam postponed

Kathmandu: The National Examination Board has decided to postpone the Class 12 examination.

Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has informed that the board meeting held on Saturday has decided to postpone the Class 12 examination which is scheduled to be held from August 16.

The examination has been postponed due to the increasing number of corona infections that created difficulty in conducting the examination.

Earlier, the Covid-19 Crisis Management Center (CCMC) had written a letter to the board to set a new date, saying it could not conduct an immediate examination due to the growing corona infection.

With one week to go before the exam, the board has postponed the exam immediately after the CCMC requested a new date on the recommendation of the Ministry of Health.
