In the past years, it was compulsory to secure good grades(percentage)in every subject to study good course in higher secondary level, but with the introduction of the grading system, the national examination board has also implemented new arrangements for recruitment of subjects only to bring certain grades to certain subjects. Some academics are criticizing it as the degree of student classification. Student’s ability to read this subject, based on the examination, can not understand the attitude of the student. Educationist Vidyanyath Koirala says – The previous percentage system was said to have brought classification discrimination among students, but today the pattern for choosing subjects based on grading has brought more classification and discrimination.
