Bhaktapur, December 04: The Office of the Controller of Examinations (OCE), Sanothimi, is preparing to hold this yearâ€™s school leaving certificate (SLC) examinations from the second week of April 2016. The OCE had conducted the last yearâ€™s SLC examinations from March 5 to 30.
The Office is planning to set back the SLC examinations by some days as the regular classes were affected due April 25 â€˜Gorkha Earthquakeâ€™ and ongoing Terai agitations in this academic session.
Examinations Controller Bishnu Bahadur Dware said that the examinations date could be prorogued for some days due to earthquake and Madhesh movement though the Office was preparing to conduct the examinations in time like previous years.
â€œProcesses have been started for setting question papers and printing answer sheets. The examinations date could be postponed for some days due to disturbances in regular classes though the Office can conduct the examinations in the second week of March,â€ Dware added.
The regular classes in quake-hit 14 districts were disturbed for nearly one and a half months while the classes in Tarai districts were affected due to ongoing Tarai unrest.
Likewise, the OCE source said that discussions were going on to conduct the SLC examinations in two phases by holding the SLC examinations in April second week in Terai districts and prior to that date in others.
