The Education Department of Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC) has directed the educational institutions in the capital to not start the admission process of students for +2 level until and unless the results of Secondary Education Examination (SEE) have been published.
Ram Prasad Subedi, Chief of the Education Department of Kathmandu Metropolitan City, informed that if any educational institution is found to be admitting students for Class 11 before the SEE results are published then legal action will be initiated against the erring educational institution.
The KMC has also directed the educational institutions to clearly mention the total fees that students have to pay for both Class 11 and 12 when they are being admitted to Class 11. Similarly, it has directed the schools not to charge more than the fee set by the National Examinations Board from students when they are registering for their board examinations.
The Education Department has also asked schools to refrain from pressurising students to purchase books, uniforms or educational materials from outlets referred to by the respective schools. It has also mentioned that the educational institutions have to provide the scholarships that they are supposed to and the details of the students receiving the scholarships must be submitted to the Education Department of KMC within two months of the start of the academic session.
