Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) Wednesday instructed all schools operating within its territory to send the marks of grade eight students from internal evaluation done by the schools themselves.
Although the local governments used to take the grade eight examinations, also known as Basic Level Examination to upgrade students to secondary level, in the past, the KMC has, this time, decided to upgrade students on the basis of the terminal examinations conducted by the respective schools as there is now no situation to conduct the examinations in physical presence.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the KMC asked to upload the marks of students at kmcdoe.org by June 8.
The schools are asked to give 40 per cent of the marks to the students on the basis of their performance in the first and second terminal examinations, 40 per cent from continuous evaluation method and 20 per cent from other alternative methods of evaluation.
The latest decision of the KMC has paved a way to conclude the ongoing academic session by mid-June.
On Sunday, the KMC instructed schools to conduct the assessment of the students of all other classes through different alternative methods and conclude the current academic session by publishing the results by June 14.
The KMC has also asked the schools to start the new academic session from the third week of June.
