Guardians give HSEB three days to publish results

Bhaktapur:Guardians today served a three-day ultimatum to the Higher Secondary Education Board to publish the results of Grade XII exams held on May.

They have warned of stern protest if the board failed to publish the results within three days.

The guardians had picketed the HSEB office yesterday to exert pressure on officials to publish results at the earliest, saying their wards could miss application deadlines due to delay in the results.

Suprabhat Bhandari, president of Guardians Association Nepal, said, “The students have already missed entrance exams at various places due to delay in results. We have therefore asked HSEB officials to announce the results within three days.” He said delay in results could lead to loss of an academic year for students as many universities have already started classes for bachelor’s level.

“The Institute of Engineering, Tribhuvan University, has already conducted the entrance exam for Bachelor’s in Engineering and Bachelor’s of Architecture and published their results while the entrance exam of MBBS is scheduled for August 31,” he added. He added that the HSEB had been delaying results for the last three years and that it should publicly apologise to the students.

As per rules, the HSEB should publish results within 90 days of exam, but the board has been overshooting the deadline for the last three years.

Narayan Koirala, Spokesperson of the HSEB, said that they were going to publish Grade XII results before August 28.

“We are working round-the-clock to publish the results,” said Koirala.
