EDUCATIONAL POSSIBILITIES AFTER SEE

There is always moment of confusion among students which subject to choose and which faculty to make his/her educational pathway after finishing SEE examination. Many of these decisions are made upon suggestions of parents, guardians or someone you know. A student is somehow choosing the subject of their studies to get enrolled in any stream rather than a long term plan which directly indirectly influence their future career (in other word many of these students have generally no idea why they are enrolled in the specific stream). Or many of them do not relate their educational pathway connecting to their future profession. Career counseling opportunities is widely not available and the understanding of its necessity is not yet thought among wide population. Here we present some courses students choose in Nepal.

1. +2 National Examination Board (formerly HSEB)

This curriculum is developed by National Examination Board and is associated with Government of NEPAL. There are mainly 3 streams which students can opt to.

A. Science

Science remains the most popular because it allow to walk on the path to Engineering and Medicine. Compulsory Subjects like English and Nepali and choices between Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Biology being a optional subject in +2 would open up the possibility to eligibility to dive into the medical education and also he/she would take chance in B.Sc. in different stream like micro-biology, Pharmacology, Medical technology, genetic engineering, Bio chemistry etc.

Student having Physics and Mathematics might take engineering courses like civil, computer or software engineering or other engineering faculties. Some of these students also swich the faculties and go on IT(information technology), BIT(bachelor in IT Management), BCIS,BCA,B.Sc. in computer science etc. Even though he/she goes for +2 in science many students choose to switch the faculty in Bachelors either in Management and Humanities stream too.

B. Commerce and Management

Management courses are higher education classes that develop a student’s professional marketing,accounting and administrative skills. The objective of a management course is to prepare the student for work as an office manager, small-business owner or corporate employee, by expanding his/her skill set in an area commonly utilized in the business world. The credits from a management course may also be applied toward the achievement of a Masters in Business Administration (MBA), an associate’s degree in management or a bachelor’s degree in business management.

2. A-LEVELS

A-levels course is affiliated to Cambridge University, UK. It has gained popularity amongst Nepali students because in A-levels, the student does not really have to go through courses that they do not feel like studying. Even though the courses available in the UK have much more variety, quite a selection is on offer from the British Council and numerous colleges here. A-level students have the opportunity to choose subjects even though the fields might clash. They are able to take Economics, Biology and Chemistry at the same time or take one subject from each field like Chemistry, Sociology and Business Studies. New subjects such as Environmental Management, Psychology, Geography and Tourism have recently been introduced.

3. LAW

Ten Plus Two (+2) program in Law is a two years program offered by National Examination Board (NEB). If someone is seeking to start their career in the administrative/legal sector then a degree in Law provides the perfect platform for putting you on the right path. Law is the most exciting and most popular courses for both home and international students. It is an instrument to transform static society to dynamic. It is the means to translate the voice of people to access justice in society.

Law is an attractive subject and popular choice in any country because of its fantastic career prospects.  Nepal is not an exception. The history of the judicial system of Nepal has gone through various phases i.e. un- codified to codified laws: from kingdom to republic, from customary to legislative and From Janga Bhadur’s Muluki Ain to Nepal’s new criminal and Civil code 2075. Candidates seeking admission in Ten Plus Two (+2) Law program must have secured 1.6 GPA

The Ministry of Education also organizes primary teacher training programs. TU offers a two-year Certificate in Education. The minimum requirement is a SLC qualification. It can be expanded for a year or three towards a Bachelor’s degree.

5. FORESTRY

Forestry is one of the fields that hold good future prospects for the students who have completed S.L.C. This subject is also a noble venture into forest conservation and constraining the mounting environmental degradation. Nepal has two institutions for forestry – one in Hetauda and another in Pokhara, both affiliated to the Tribhuvan University, offering certificate and bachelors level studies. The course provides advanced training in forestry and natural resource, conservation and management. Additional responsibilities include forestry research and development of technology suitable for Nepal. The campuses of the Institute of Forestry have laboratories, woodlots, arboreta, horticulture research farms, computer and other facilities.

CTEVT has a 3-year Diploma in agriculture and veterinary practice. This is equivalent to +2 or I.Sc. The Rampur Campus at Chitwan is the only government college in the country that provides general agriculture education along with veterinary studies. You can join the BSc if you have Pure Science at ISc or +2. The Himalayan Institute of Agriculture and Science and Technology also offers agriculture and veterinary studies at the Bachelor’s level. CTEVT provides Junior Technical Assistant (JTA) course on agriculture for SLC students. A year of Junior Technician after JTA is equivalent to Isc

7. SANSKRIT

After the completion of S.L.C., students can opt for Sanskrit studies. The Intermediate in Sanskrit is called Uttar Madhyama. There are various colleges in and outside the valley that offer the intermediate course, all being affiliated to the Mahendra Sanskrit University. After the completion of Uttar Madhyama, students can enroll to the bachelors’ level study, i.e. Shastri and then masters level i.e. Acharya. Vedas, Sanskrit Grammar, Literature, Astronomy are some of the subjects that students have to study under the intermediate curriculum. The study of Sanskrit leads students to sectors like Archeology, Astrology, Astronomy, Anthropology and so forth. The study of Sanskrit helps the students in historical research as all the holy books and ancient scriptures of Hinduism and Buddhism are found to be written in Sanskrit language or its derivatives: for example Pali, which is the language of major Buddhist scriptures, is derived from Sanskrit.

8. Hospitality Management

Hospitality management is a growing field, globally. Colleges like NATHM (Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hospitality Management) offer access only after the completion of the intermediate level. However, they also offer some short-term courses on waiters, room boys, chefs, travel agents, house-keeping, front office, barman etc. The students can extend their career in different hotels, restaurants and at many administrative units after sincerely going through these courses.

Pain of parents

Students are always given the highest priority whenever new academic season starts. Discussing their challenges and hardship. In this article, we are putting in lime-light on people who make the students’ education and career a reality. Parents and their challenges and hardships!

In the 21st century, it is almost unthinkable that parents make any decisions for their children. They can’t decide which type of jeans their children wear, let alone decide the children’s future education and career. We think it is in both of their interest that children take the responsibility for this life decision so that they are in-charge of the education and career.

This puts the parents in 3 main disconcerting situations,

  1. The parents cannot influence their children’s education even though they have to finance it,
  2. The parents are unsure if their children are making the RIGHT career decision (considering fully the future labour market and prestige)
  3. The fluctuating interest of their children casts doubt for the effectiveness of the decision taken and thus casts doubt if the money spend in education was effective

These situations are troubling because of the below main factors; huge amount of money being spent in education, unknown future labour market, children aren’t aware of their personality and unaware of their underlying interest.

Possible Solutions

In-depth understanding of the personality and interest

If the youths know their personality and interest in detail, they would be able to pin-point the area of occupation and consequent education. Researches have shown that this understanding would lead to development in education and more fulfilling career. It is in both the parents and children’s internet that children understand their interest and personality before they take any major life decisions.

Career Counselor’s advice: All youths that are trying to make thoughtful life decisions are recommended that they take personality and interest assessment.

Be aware of the labour market indicators

Suppose your child chooses an education that they think is best for them now. Do you suppose the demand for that education would be the same in 6 years’ time? Perhaps NOT!

Considering the pace of the current technological and societal development, one should think through careers that have demand currently and sustained demand in future. Sadly, such data is not easily found and needs time and skill to research.

Perhaps our Job and Educational Database might be of help?

Consider education cost as investment and do due research for best education

Just like visiting dozens of houses before buying one, the parents need to visit dozens of schools to choose the best one for their kids. But, the fact is the parents could still do better…they could visit more schools and institutes, but their time and energy is limited.

Choosing among 1500 institutes in Nepal considering fees, courses, location and experience, the parents can now make better decision than ever with the Job and Educational Database

What is meant by quality education?

Educating children is an investment in their futures, and in peaceful and prosperous societies. Every child has the fundamental right to quality education – one that helps them acquire basic literacy and numeracy, enjoy learning without fear, and feel valued and included, irrespective of where they come from.
 According to UNESCO, 2004 “Understanding what quality means varies between countries. Different education actors and organizations also have their own definitions. However, most tend to agree on three broad principles: the need for relevance, for equity of access and outcome, and for proper observance of individual rights.”It is believed that good education is the one, which makes person better. Quality education is the most important issue of today’s world. The more educated you are the better life you live and in today’s world, good and quality education means higher earnings, good health, and positive wellbeing.
Quality education is also one of the main agendas of any nation for Sustainable Development. There is a lot of difference between education and quality education. Quality Education is not one that is measured purely by a test score or by how many words per minute a 5-year-old can read. Going back to these simplified measurements is to do a disfavor to both the student and the phrase Quality Education itself.

What determines the quality of an education?

The whole ranking system cannot determine the quality of education. There are many programs, which are invested in teaching while others are torn between teaching and research. All of the factors in the quality of an education are important like curriculum, teachers etc. However, it is not that one curriculum is better than another, simply different. The idea is to find the right program for you. A motivated student is important and the best feeling is to see smiling young faces to learn. Quality of education is determined by the teachers’ willingness to engage and interact with his or her students, to capture their attention and to refocus on their interest, not only learning new knowledge, but on accepting new knowledge. 

If I obtain D or E in any subject in SEE examination am I able to get enrolled in Grade XI?

It has not been much longer than our Education system has shifted from the traditional Percentage based evaluation system to Grade/ GPA based evaluation system. The grading system has replaced the system of awarding marks in each subject that has been in practice for the last 80 years since the first SLC exams took place in 1934 A.D. which ensures that no student appearing in the Secondary Education Examination (SEE) exams will be provided with a ‘Fail’ certificate. This has created confusions among the parents and guardians, also many students aren’t clear about the GPA based evaluation system.

What is grading system?

The office of examinations of controllers (OCE) has been publishing SEE results through grade system since 2073 B.S. Usually, there would be an A-F grading. But, in Nepal, it works a bit different. There are 9 grades, which are A+, A, B+, B, C+, C, D, E, and N with GPA ranging from 0 to 4. There is one more grade N which represents students who failed to attend the exams or those who were expelled from the educational institutions.

Detail of Grade Sheet

S.N. Interval in Percentage Grade Grade points Description
1 90 to 100 A+ 3.6-4.0 Outstanding
2 80 to 89 A 3.2-3.6 Excellent
3 70 to 79 B+ 2.8-3.2 Very Good
4 60 to 69 B 2.4-2.8 Good
5 50 to 59 C+ 2.0-2.4 Satisfactory
6 40 to 49 C 1.6-2.0 Acceptable
7 30 to 39 D+ 1.2-1.6 Partially Acceptable
8 20 to 29 D 0.8-1.2 Insufficient
9 1 to 19 E 1.0-0.8 Very Insufficient
10 0 N 0.0 Not Graded

If I obtain D or E in any subject in SEE examination am I able to get enrolled in 11?

As grading system does not says a student has passed or failed the examination there is a big doubt among students what is the crucial criteria to enroll in grade 11 after SEE we believe this article would help you out to figure out what would be your further steps on future education.

There is certain criteria in place for admission of students in different streams. The Higher Secondary Education Board has said students should get at least D+ in English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Nepali for admission in Grade XI.

Those wishing to study Science in Grade XI student should get at least a C+ in Science and Mathematics and C in English. The students should get this grade — 50-60 percent — in both Practical and Theoretical Papers. For example, students who have not secured a C+ or higher in Science and Mathematics, C in English, and D+ in Social and Nepali cannot study Science in Grade 11. The students are eligible for admission in other faculties even if they get a D+.

Students wishing to study Management in Grade XI should get a C in compulsorily Mathematics, whereas those wishing to study Tourism, Mass Communications and Hotel Management should get a C in compulsorily English.

In optional subjects, students should get at least a C. As per the Exam Controller’s Office at Sanothimi, only those students, who score more than a D+, will get admission at Plus-Two.

I got GPA 3.15.but D+ in mathematics. Can I study management without giving re-exam?

 In that condition YES.

For admission in technical courses, however, students should get at least a C+ in all subjects.

Centre for Technical Education and Vocational Training has decided to enroll even those students, who score a C. As per the CTEVT, students should get a C each in Compulsory English, Mathematics and Science to be eligible for admission in its programs.

Though no students are categorized as having failed the exams, those with lower grades feel the new system is unfair. Those with D and E grades have an option to sit for re-examination in up to two subjects to improve their grades, and if they scored those grades in more than two subjects they can retake all the exams the following year. But those with a D+ do not have the option to take the re-tests, which has left many students in a fix.

What after 12 in Nepal?

According to Central Board of Secondary Education, Nearly 13 lakhs students appeared in +2 examination this year.

Most of the students among them are confused about what to study next. When a student completes plus two, there is an entire horizon of alternatives. Although there is a great happiness of completing high school, there comes a big confusion of “what should I study?” very common question and very difficult to answer, and there comes “what if I fail?” and so on.

There are plenty of options when it comes to doing undergraduate in Nepal. However, students are confused about what is the best career option for them.

What should I Study?

We have seen many students find themselves lost while deciding the subject they want to study. One should take the decision wisely, as the subject they chose determines their professional career. After the results, instead of thinking carefully, many would choose the subject their friends did, or would listen to their parents/ relatives and mostly would choose the subject based upon their marks/percentage.

This practice is as wrong as the marks obtain in the +2 exams barely defines their field of interest. Due to which they struggle all year long to cope up with the subject having no or less devotion to it. This happens because students have no prior information about the subjects offered by different faculties/ streams in different colleges.

To solve the problem of students regarding choosing the best career, to know their interest. We have develop psychometric assessment. Which can be your first few steps towards finding a matching job that compliments your interest and character. After this, students will have clear vision about “what to study? Where to study? And how to study?” As there is an entire horizon of alternatives. Either students can go for the further academic or they can also go for the vocational trainings as per their interest and ability.

What if I fail +2?

Many students choose to study certain subjects their friends did, their parents/ relatives told, as a result most of them fail. They do not choose the subject that they are interested. Most of the people think that if one fails in their academics they do not have any other option. They cannot be successful in their life or they cannot have better income. But the thing is, academics is not only the last option, many people are unaware about the vocational training, which can be very useful to the students who are not able to focus on their theoretical studies or academic studies. There are many course provided by CTEVT, students can attend by having SEE only. There is also several course for those who have basic education only. First thing that one should know before choosing any subject is that whether the subject is your interest or not.

Vocational Training- The Ignored Area of Our Education System

SEE’s result is out. The students all around Nepal are now haphazardly struggling to answer the ONE question their parents are raising; ‘Are you going to choose Commerce, Management, Law, Education or Science in your +2?’

We have come a long way…from parents dictating the academic and career course of their children to today allowing the youths to decide for themselves the academic courses they might want to study. There is however something parents, teachers and youths inherently ignored, the technical and vocational training (VT) of Nepal’s Formal Education System.

This Shrawan 21 (in Kathmandu Valley) and Mangsir 12 (outside the valley) various different skill testing certification examination’s forms are going to be distributed. (You can check out the detailed deadlines in the NSTB website) From this article, we wanted to explore the uncharted territory of the misunderstood and under-represented vocational training. Hopefully, after reading this article you will better understand the vocational training (VT) scenario or even give vocational training a try.

7 things that are mostly unknown to most people about Vocational Training (VT)

You can get certified

  1. Similar to academics, VT too is segregated according to complexity as well as level of competence. The first entry level is called Elementary level, and then Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and finally Level 4.
  2. Similar to academics where you get undergraduate certificate, graduate as well Doctorate; you too can get various certification that can help you get better jobs and take you further in your career. Therefore respectively; Elementary (Technical), Non Gazette 3rd Class (i.e. Mukhiya), Non Gazette 2nd Class (i.e. Khardar), Non Gazette 1st Class (i.e. Subba) and finally Gazette 3rd Officer (Diploma).
  3. You are able to apply for various Governmental jobs with the above certification. For example, if the government requires a Khardar in technical area, you are able to apply for that job with Level 2 certification.

4. Experience counts;

  • You don’t always have to go through the formal training to apply for examination for Level 1, Level 2 and level 3. Experience in the respective fields of 1 year to appear for level 1 exam, 3 years for level 2 and 5 years for level 3 is valid to appear for exams. This allows for youths around the whole country to get certified and to explore their career in formal setting.

5. Target group is not only those who fail academic courses!

  • The target group of VT skill tests are; pass-out from pre-employment vocational training wishing to facilitate their transition to work, experienced workers lacking an official certification and workers who, at the end of in-service training, seek an upgraded or additional certificate.

6. Current and Future job demand is high!

  • More and more technical based factories as well as companies are demanding for technically sound professionals that have hands on experience as well as are certified. Meaning, there is a HUGE job possibility for those who have Level-1 to Level-4 certificates in today’s market.

7. Training institutes are getting better

  • Since the duration of the trainings are lot shorter than all academic courses (starting from 160 hrs to 1500 hrs), it is cheaper and more effective for employment to take VT as a form of career-based education. Contrary to popular belief, there are many professional grade institutes (private, public or community based) around Nepal that provide quality-training courses for fraction of the cost of academic courses.

We wanted to shed some light on the current outlook of the VT as well as skill testing and certification in Nepal. You might not want to take the VT route for your career, it is your choice but there are many youths that are struggling with academics (SEE, +2 and Bachelor) and we as a society have focused on their as the only mean of getting jobs in Nepal.

Do share this article to people who you know might benefit from taking VT as their education pathway rather than academics. We have collected a few success stories of professionals who have chosen VT and have become the leaders in their respective fields. Check them out!

Improvments in Result Display

5 new additions/ changes in your result display that we have made in June

We are permanently striving to increase our services for our clients. Most recently we have launched a new version of the results of the psychometric assessment to make them even more intuitive for students to read. Here is what we have done in particular.

The learn-more section is the first place the students and youths go to view their recommended jobs. Learn-more has gotten a lot of new changes that were highly demanded by youths as well as teachers. This page describes the 5 changes:

We have now illustrated intuitively the self-employment graph. You can see easily see the percent of the level of self employment in the entire Nepal for any given job.

The demand logo is now larger and clearer. We have also defined the demand differently. They are defined in 4 layers:

  • Very High Demand
  • High Demand
  • Low Demand
  • Saturated

If the counselor has seen your result and has recommended you jobs accordingly, you will see the tick beside your job. (The counselor recommends you job only when you have taken Assessment Basic or Assessment Deluxe)

There are multiple educational ways to reach the same career. We have illustrated that with 4 different colours:

  1. Orange: Academic (e.g. Bachelors, Masters)
  2. Brown: Diploma
  3. Pink: TSLC
  4. Blue: Training

We have created a system to view all the institutes (available in our system) in your selected district to study, all the courses, for the given job. If there no available institutes in your district, the hand signal is shown in red.

We hope that all this changes do increase the usability of the assessment. If you have further ideas on how we can make our online service more user friendly, please do not hesitate to send us an email to info@careerdishanepal.org

You have not yet taken the assessment? Go and take the test now and get the jobs which are personally recommended for you.

7 things I learned as a trainer;

while training 75 freed Kamlahari young girls in rural Nepal

Plan International Nepal has been implementing the Kamlahari Practice Abolition project (KAP) since 2006 and has rescued more than 3,000 Kamlahari girls and supported them with different interventions focusing in reintegrating girls into their lives, communities and schools in two phases of project KAP I and KAP II. The initial project ended in March 2016. Now, a continuation project Kamlahari Higher Education Scholarship Support (KHES) continued supporting those rescued and benefitted girls in higher education levels (10+2 and Bachelor degree) of Dang, Kailali and Kanchanpur Districts.

Concurring to the KAP, Plan International selected Career Disha Nepal under VHS Bhaktapur for career-integration program where 125 former Kamlahari girls, through 5 different sessions were trained to integrate themselves into the labour market of Nepal.

I was Kailali along with my team members. Where I was leading 3 different sessions. It was the first long- duration training for me. I was super excited to help the needy people to better their lives. After reached their in Kailali I was happy and sad as well, happy to get the chance to help other people to bring positive changes in their lives and sad to be away from the home. But today, I realize that besides all, I learned a lot from them too. Here I like to share the things I learned from them to betterment my training skill to conduct exciting training.

  1.  Enthusiastic introduction

I felt this is first and foremost essential things to make exciting training.  Who does not like an enthusiastic environment. Making the funny type of introduction session get to know each other would create an enthusiastic environment which also helps to eradicate hesitation and shyness.  Sometimes it might take longer than expected but it is completely okay to be quite late to jump into first day content. That kind of session helps to smooth up entire training to be more interactive

2. Make them feel responsible

I learned that by giving participants some form of responsibilities would help to build their leadership skill. Letting them make a classroom rule, asking their opinion on content and let them decide how we should go further are some example. I felt that kind of session grant them chances to be out spoken in the session. 

3.      Get involved in the game

Trainer involvement in the game has really positive result in learning and sharing. If the trainer gets excited and involves in the game then the same energy flows to the participants. This helps to activate their mind and body. When we have to spend time with the toddler we act like same age child similar manner teaching youth by being a youth helps to unlock any kind of hesitation.   

4.     Create an informal event

Going outside to explore some places is one of the best ways to make trainee more confident and open with each other. Organizing some cultural evening, taking an hour tour nearby during the training session not only refreshed them it also has a positive effect in learning and sharing.

5.      Recognise what they need to know and forward content accordingly

Rather than focusing what trainer know it would be far better to know what trainee need to know. I felt knowing trainees’ needs are most essential for successful training. If one follows the content without considering their needs training might be boring and ineffective.   

6.      Make them feels special  

Sometimes trainee felt inferior to their trainer. To bridge the gap between two are making them special by spending quality time and listening to them actively. Having the conversation in meal time, listening to their opinion, and learns their language also help to create interactive environment.  If one listens to them they felt valuable and special. That is why making them feels special is another element to have fruitful training outcomes.

7.    Positive feedback

If the trainee is presenting something, it is time to encourage them to do better in the future.  I felt positive feedback is the most essential. Positive feedback encourages youth to be more active in coming days than before.  Positive feedback motivates them to engage in session proactively.

We would like to thank Mr. Dahal for his efforts to cover up for the absence of Inge Patsch and Saroj Bastola. We do recognize that Mr. Dahal being the main resource person for counseling and workshops did not have sufficient time capacities to guide all our 6 permanent staffs in a way which would bring out their full potential.

In a board meeting on September 14th our board (Hari, Saroj and Inge) therefore decided, that it is time to distribute the leadership more equally among all three of them again. With effect from October 1st a new organizational structure will therefore be in place.

While the board meeting will continue to meet once a month and decide upon the strategic direction of the organization, operational leadership will be given to all three board members.

Hari will take care of the counseling department. The department will be responsible for developing counseling material, conducting counseling and workshop and train career helpers on our tools. As we saw a lot of potential in Shrijana giving direction and advice to youth she will join Hari in his department from October 1st onwards.

Saroj will lead the administrative department and Sales & Marketing Department which will take care of all financial agendas, billing, reporting, proposal, HR and website and coordinate the development of new information material, articles and the whole social media communication.

Inge will take care of the technical team, which will maintain the website, our job and educational database, our web-shop and the assessment and develop new functions which can help our partners to use our services even more efficiently. She will supervise our team from Austria and coordinate furthermore with Patrick Menke, who relentlessly is providing us with top-class software to reach our target.

She furthermore will act as a first contact to all European partners and clients so that they have a German speaking first contact.

We hope that with that new structure, we can serve all our partners better and be able to get the best out of our motivated team in Nepal.
