After SLC, letter grading system is likely to be introduced in the HSEB examinations as well. A meeting of HSEB Council chaired by Education Minister Giriraj Mani Pokharel has decided to introduce letter grading system in Grade XI and XII.
The Office of Controller of Examinations (OCE) had decided to introduce letter grading system in SLC examinations earlier this year. The Council for Technical Education and Vocational Training also decided to implement the letter grading system at various levels a week ago.
The current evaluation model has been eliminated from the rest of the countries. The HSEB believes that the new letter grading model will make Nepalese students competitive in the global stage. According to the current plan, students will be graded between A+ (excellent) and E on the basis of their performance. A+ will be 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.
Students will not be marked as ‘Fail’ once this system is implemented, which will help the students in their academic career. Nevertheless, this system will get implemented in the upcoming session 2073. Students taking examinations this year will not be affected by this system.
The council also decided to allow HSEB to run Distance/Open Education in Grade XI and XII.

Chaitanya Sharma, vice chairperson, HSEB said, “.” A policy level decision has been taken to introduce letter grading system but the number grading system is still to be finalized.” “We are going to form a technical team of five people, including HSEB representatives, experts from universities and education ministry officials to decide on the matter.” he said adding further.After the results are published, Type HSEB<Space><Symbol no.> and SMS it to 35001 to know your results along with mark sheet.
