LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD With Youth Speak Forum Nepal

with 0 Comment
AIESEC is an organization of over 100,000 students and fresh graduates present in over 133 countries all over the world providing the members with ample of opportunities to stand out among their fellow graduates. The main aim of AIESEC is to engage the youth and stimulate them towards changing the world with their progressive thinking and out of the box ideas. In order to engage the youth in leadership, AIESEC presents Youth Speak Forums(YSF) all over the world. YSFs are conducted with a view to convert ideas to actions.

With the notion of "The way the world will be shaped by 2030 depends on us.", AIESEC Nepal presents Youth Speak Forum-Nepal being held on 21st May 2016 at Trade Tower, Shangri-La. YSFs are administered across three phases: Inspire, Engage and Act; the key concept this year are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by the United Nations. Tangible ideas generated via the forums are then communicated across the network of over 70,000 young students, which, then are converted into plans and actions across the globe and communicated to the UN.



When asked how Youth Speak Forum is more unique than other talk forums of similar kind, Sagol Ghale Gurung, External Relations for Youth Speak says, “Well tell me a thing, can you imagine your voice being heard by the Secretary of the UN? I mean Nepal is one tiny nation among 200 nations, and you are one person among the world population of over 7 billion, the possibility is quite diminished, isn’t it? Well, there's a way to get your voice all the way over there, heard and accounted for.”

“That way is the youth Speak survey which is presented to the United Nations every year by AIESEC Nepal and this can only be done through the Youth Speak Forum. YSF is going to held first time in Nepal, and it is one of its kind. Here the inspirer meets the inspired (youths like us) to formulate ideas and plans to go forth to the United Nation. So LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD", adds vivacious Sagol.

Sparrow SMS proudly announces its partnership with AIESEC Nepal for Youth Speak Forum Nepal. We wish the entire team of AIESEC Nepal a very best for the event. Sparrow SMS, heartily, extends every form of feasible support to AIESEC Nepal.

After the results are published, Type HSEB<Space><Symbol no.> and SMS it to 35001 to know your results along with mark sheet. Also download Sparrow App for results and other utilities from: sparrowsms.com/android
The Curriculum and Training division of the HSEB +2 has been working on modifying the curriculum since last year to bring it in operation from this academic session. The academic session is set to start in a few months.
As per Jung Bahadur Aryal, chief of Curriculum and Training Division, HSEB, among the more than 100 subjects being taught at XI and XII, those subjects which are more in demand amid students will be given priority and attention.
He said,” We are in the final stage of modifying the curriculum of preferred subjects among students.”


159 subjects are taught in total in Grades XI and XII.
Jung Bahadur Aryal said, “Maithili, German, Newari and few others were less favored by students currently. Consequently, we have not revised their curriculum.”
In the meantime, subjects like Economics, Accounts, Travel and Tourism, Hotel Management, Mass Communications are more prioritized in the process of Curriculum revision since students favored these subjects more.
The curriculum of HSEB was last revised in 1999 and only slight modifications have been made since then. As per HSEB, the curriculum has to be modified so that it is compatible with today’s era.
The chief of Curriculum and Training Division has affirmed that subject committees have been formed with experts to revise the curriculum. And that the modified curriculum will be uploaded in the official website of HSEB within a few weeks.
The HSEB board was introduced in 1989, and the last curriculum was worked on back then.
Technical education was introduced in Grade XI as well from last year with a new curriculum for technical subjects. HSEB also incorporated 12 subjects in both grades for modification.
Sparrow SMS wishes all the students a very best of luck for their HSEB examinations.

SLC exam results 2072: Theory and practical tests to be marked separately!

with 0 Comment
After results are published, type SLC<space>Symbol-No & send SMS to 35001 or Download Sparrow App from sparrowsms.com/android & check your result.  

As stated by Krishna Prasad Kapri, examination controller, OCE, SLC examinees will be awarded separate grades for Practical and theory tests in SLC exam result 2072.
According to the decision take by OCE earlier, the marks in Practical and theory exams were to be added up and a single grade was to be awarded to SLC examinees 2072.
But after parents and students complained that a single grade would not do justice to hard working students, OCE decided to cite separate grades for both theory and Practical examinations.
Students usually get full marks in practical tests by their respective schools. When these marks are added to the marks obtained in theoretical examinations, it becomes easier for any student to get good grades. This may discourage those students who work hard for the examinations. Consequently, OCE has decided to award separate grades for theoretical and practical examinations in SLC exam result 2072.
As per the letter grading system which is set to be introduced in SLC examinations this year, there are going to be nine grades based on the marks obtained by the examinees: A+, A, B+, B, C+, C, D, E and N where A+ refers to 'outstanding', A refers to 'excellent', B+ means 'very good, B specifies 'good', C+ denotes 'above average' and C stands for 'average'.
Additionally, D is for marks between 20-39, E for 1-19 and N denotes 'not graded' students who were expelled or remained absent.
A+ is equivalent to four GPA, A to 3.6, B+ to 3.2, B to 2.8, C+ to 2.4, C to 2.0, D to 1.6, and E to 0.8.
SLC examinations 2072 concluded on 8th April, 2016.
Sparrow SMS wishes all the students a very best of luck for their SLC exam result 2072.
