Wait and SEE: Grade 10 results

Many teachers and students are still confused by the sudden switch from marks to grades, not just because the grade system is complex. In fact, it is quite easy to understand. The confusion rather stems from unease over how the school and college administrators are using the new system for admissions.

Those were the days! Up until a couple of decades ago, the students who had appeared for the school-ending School Leaving Certificate (SLC) examinations, and not a few of the eager parents, would head towards Gorkhapatra Sansthan in the dead of the night on learning that the results would be published the next morning.  In those pre-internet days, only the government-owned Gorkhapatra used to carry the symbol numbers of students who had passed the exams, and so the newspaper would be a hot commodity on that day. The newspaper costing a couple of rupee in a normal day would that day sell for hundreds of rupees in the black market. The students outside the valley would be endlessly calling their relatives in Kathmandu to learn if they had passed, and in which division. But starting from this year, the SLC exams have been scrapped and replaced by the Secondary Education Examinations (SEE) at the end of grade 10. Also, starting from last year, gone is the old percentage system, which has been replaced by a grade system where students will be ranked on a sliding A to E scale. With this, those holding the old SLC certificates with percentages would be forgiven for thinking that they are turning into modern-day dinosaurs in the eyes of Gen Next.  

In the larger context of the evolution of the education system of Nepal, their feelings may be irrelevant. But perhaps there are a few things that can be done to fine-tune the new system. Many teachers and students are still confused by the sudden switch from marks to grades, not just because the grade system is complex. In fact, it is quite easy to understand. The confusion rather stems from unease over how the school and college administrators are using the new system for admissions. The government has clarified that no student will ‘fail’ in the new system, yet whether or not to consider ‘Ds’ and ‘Es’ failures is entirely up to the discretion of colleges and universities that these students apply to. There is thus room for subjective judgment, which the many money-minded colleges that are mushrooming all over the country are exploiting to extract hefty fees from relatively weaker students. This has put many students and parents in a dilemma. Say, if a student gets a D, should that student try to improve his grade in that particular subject or settle for what he has?  

There is another danger. Those who do well in their favorite subjects (say, English and Nepali) are being encouraged to pursue higher education in these subjects rather than in the subjects they find harder (say, Mathematics and Science). But then there is a risk that a student who is weak in science will start shunning the subject from early in his student career—and the new grade system encourages her to do so—potentially stunting her intellectual development. In fact, if a student finds a particular subject difficult, secondary school and early college is the perfect place to improve her aptitude in it. We wholeheartedly support the switch to a more scientific and more widely recognized grade system. Yet its efficacy needs to be constantly monitored and evaluated to get the kind of improvements in student learning and in the practical application of that learning that is expected of the new system.

Regardez la replique montre pour voir le mouvement, le mouvement pour voir l'échappée, l'échappée pour voir la balance, en regardant la roue de la balance peut avoir besoin de voir l'aiguille. La plupart des gens savent que la conception d'une montre peut ajuster la vitesse de l'appareil, la famille de table amoureuse appelée régulateur, montre l'industrie appelée aiguille de vitesse (goupilles de régulation). En fait, l'aiguille de vitesse est destinée à la fabrication et à la maintenance du fonctionnement professionnel de la conception d'un corps de montre plutôt que conçu pour l'utilisateur. Mais nous, en tant que connaisseur, pouvons être à la vitesse de l'aiguille pour distinguer si le mouvement est haut de gamme, dans le foyer, nous parlons toujours du principe de l'aiguille de vitesse, nous allons vous dire ensuite comment se concentrer sur le mouvement à travers L'aiguille pour distinguer entre les bonnes et les mauvaises Les choses ont toujours leurs deux côtés, tout en apportant la commodité, il aura certainement un autre problème - c'est-à-dire un problème Audemars Piguet Montre, même les meilleures institutions de réglage, c'est inévitable. Nous venons ici d'explorer son mystère! Qu'est-ce qu'un problème isochrone? Habituellement, la montre est due à des changements dans le swing causés par des changements de la différence, appelée erreur isochrone, appelée différence de temps. La différence isochrone est un test, une évaluation de la qualité de la montre au moment de la marche, occupent une plus grande proportion des paramètres techniques. La définition de la différence Bvlgari Montre temps est l'erreur lorsque la chaîne complète de montres et 24 heures après l'erreur de temps de déplacement. La mesure et le calcul spécifiques sont les suivants: sur l'enroulement complet, l'instrument sur la table d'instruments pour détecter les quatre positions (côté CH, 3H sur 6H à gauche, 9H à la suivante) et ensuite Enregistrement; 24 heures plus tard, détecter une fois de plus les quatre positions de la différence instantanée, puis calculer la position correspondante de la quatre différence, dont la valeur maximale est l'erreur isochrone de la montre.
