Kathmandu: The National Examination Board (NEB) has requested the Ministry of Health and Population to provide vaccination to the Class 12 students.

The ministry has been requested to provide the remaining AstraZeneca vaccine to the students of class 12 from the grant from Japan.

The ministry has said that the remaining 800,000 vaccines will arrive within the next week.

The board had postponed the examination after the CCMC requested to postpone the examination citing the increased risk of covid-19.

The board had prepared for the examination of 4.5 million students by maintaining physical distance in 4,310 examination centers and keeping only 25 students in a class.
