The Ministry of Education (MoE) which was established in 1951 AD is the main body that controls all the activities associated with education in the country. It initiates and manages the educational activities in the country by the development of the education related policies, planning and monitoring and evaluating the programs. Under the Ministry of Education, there are five regional directorates and 75 district education offices in 5 developmental regions and 75 districts respectively. District level examination is taken district wise among 75 districts of Nepal and DLE result is published with a competition between students in a district.
The educational structure in Nepal encompasses school education and higher education. After the amendment to the Education Act of 1971 in 2016 AD, the school education subsumes basic level (from grade 1 to 8) and secondary level (from grade 9 to 12). These form the school education. Higher education consists of Bachelors, Masters and PhD level. Along with the school education, a student in Nepal has to undergo three main examinations: District Level Examination (DLE) in grade 8 as the final exam of basic level, Secondary Education Examination (SEE) in grade 10 as the examination of regional level and School Leaving Certificate (SLC) examination in grade 12 as the examination of national level.
