The Office of the Controller of Examinations (OCE) is all set to publish this year’s School Leaving Certificate (SLC) exam results on Tuesday.
The board meeting of OCE which was summoned this morning has concluded. Spokesperson at the Education Ministry Mahashram Sharma said that another meeting has been slated for 1 pm later on today.
Sharma said that the SLC results will be out early this year. "It will not be late unlike past years when results were published late on night. The results will be out after the meeting," he said.
OCE has said it will not publish the results in newspapers citing budget constraints. However, the newspapers can publish them if they make it free of cost.
The results can also be viewed on ekantipur.com. Likewise, the results can also be viewed at OCE's site soce.gov.np, Education Ministry's moe.gov.np, Education Department's doe.gov.np and Nepal Telecom's slc.ntc.net.np. Results can also be known through telephone by dialing 1600 and following the instructions.
A total of 547,165 students sat the 79th iteration of the SLC exams held on March 13-24 earlier this year. Of them, 430,097 are regular and 117,068 are exempted students.
The OCE had set up 1,786 exam centres across the country with an equal number of superintendents and 2,655 assistant superintendents. Similarly, 21,890 invigilators, 7,297 peons and 19,860 security personnel were mobilised for the exams. The answer sheets were marked at 60 centres under tight vigilance.
