With the formation of NEB after the 8th amendment to the education act 2073, several changes have been made to the Examination System. Prior to that HSEB had the sole responsibility of affiliating, and permitting schools to run the then Higher Secondary programs, curriculum and course book designing and examining the students. Now separate government bodies are responsible for examining the students, curriculum and textbook development and other administrative assistance.
There used to be two board examinations: first at the end of grade XI and second at the end of grade XII. Students having appeared in the board examination of grade XI were allowed to go to class XII and continue their studies. At the end of class XII, they were accredited with a transcript including the marks /grades obtained by the students in both the classes side by side.
After the formation of NEB and implementation of the Examination Directives 2077, NEB evaluates students through a nation-wide board examination at the end of grade XII only and only the grades obtained in that examination are included in the grade -sheet made available to the students.
Grade XI examinations are to be conducted by the concerned schools as per the Directives of NEB. The Annual Examination grade-sheets (as specified) made available to the students by concerned schools are necessary for a student to be able to fill up the board examination form of grade XII.
