HSEB is now allowed to start higher education classes for TSLC graduates

with 0 Comment
The Ministry of Education (MoE) has come up with a decision to award the authority to Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB) for running classes of higher education to benefit SLC students under technical category. The TSLC students can now study science stream in the general category under the technical category of higher education or pursue diploma courses offered by the Council for the Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT).

The decision comes as a result of recommendation from the team led by Tanka Nath Sharma. Last Monday, the Ministry decided to further allow HSEB to commence Grade 11 class starting this year.  
Total 3,256 students from 99 public schools sat for the SLC exam on technical category out of which 1,246 girls passed the examinations.

HSEB vice-chairman Chaitanya Sharma said that the office will form committees to design the curriculum and start affiliation process eventually. He added, “Committees will be formed within a week and a public notice will be issued to call for applications for affiliation. We hope to start the new academic session by the second week of August.”  Five different committees for five different subjects - plant sciences, animal husbandry, computer engineering, software engineering and mechanical engineering are to be conducted.

CTEVT is however against this move and is to challenge the decision by taking it to the Supreme Court as it claims that MoE has breached the existing law which until now solely authorizes the Council for running intermediate level education. Member-secretary at CTEVT, Ram Hari Lamichhane said, “We are in consultation with our lawyers. The decision will be challenged in the apex court in a couple of days.”

At present, diploma course in various subjects are being provided by CTEVT which is equivalent to intermediate degree. Lamichhane further claimed that 3 years of study is mandatory to get an equivalence to intermediate degree and HSEB only runs a two-year program which will not be recognized abroad.

Council for the Technical Education and Vocational Training (CTEVT) has already called those 99 schools for application if they are to run higher education classes under the affiliation of CTEVT.

Celebrating 10,000+ App Downloads in the First 2 Weeks!

with 0 Comment

Even under the pressure, hustles and tough deadlines, we’ve made it through and the happiness has knocked our doors with 10,000+ APP DOWNLOADS in the FIRST 2 weeks of being launched! And the number of downloads is just increasing J

Well, the concept behind app was to deliver information even in absence of internet connection (where internet connection is very poor) via SMS without having to go through the need of remembering SMS format and short codes. And it turns out that some users voted for the concept while some were upset as it incurs SMS charge. So, we've considered every feedback seriously as we believe it will simply help us grow.

Thus, we have now revised the concept and made Sparrow SMS app available both on Wi-fi/Data (online) and SMS (offline); the app will work depending on the connection type. Except for exam results and third party services like Dish Home, Government Services, and Goal Nepal, which are available via SMS only, other many app functionalities such as Loadshedding, Jokes, Quotes, Daily Price and many more will check internet connectivity. If the you are connected, the app will provide information over Wi-Fi/Data and only in the condition when it detects no internet access, the app will work offline via SMS.

Our updated app is live and can be found at:

We expect your ongoing supports in days to come. Today we’ve reached 10,000 and tomorrow, we expect to grow bigger than this! A BIG THANK YOU to all our users for your invaluable contribution J
