The eighth amendment to the Education Act 2073 BS (2016 AD) has been passed and has been in effect for some time now. This amendment was under discussion for a long time, and finally, it has been made.

Articles describe you on how to check NEB routine through an official website.

Changes in education system of Nepal (SLC to SEE) (HSEB and NEB to SLC)

Erstwhile, in the education system of Nepal, there was district level examination (DLE) as the basic level examination in class 8, SLC (School Leaving Certificate Examination) in class 10 and class 11 and 12 were considered as higher secondary level. Now, after the amendment in the education act in 2073 BS, Grade 11 and 12 are integrated into the school system. Presently, the examination of class 10 is called SEE (Secondary Education Examination), which is at the regional level and examination at the end of Grade 12 is called as SLC (School Leaving Certificate) examination, which is at the national level.

Formerly, the higher secondary education board (HSEB) used to supervise the higher secondary schools i.e. class 11 and 12 which were mostly under the private management. Now, these functions are undertaken by NEB (National Education Board). The department of education takes care of the functions regarding permission for the affiliated schools, scholarships, operation of schools and the curriculum development centre looks after the functions regarding the development of curriculum and its improvement for grade 11 and 12. The examination of class 10, 11 and 12 are considered as united viscera now and managed by the national education board.

The office of National examination board is located in Madhyapur Thimi Municipality, Bhaktapur, Nepal. The office is open from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm from Sunday to Friday.
