NFP calls for answers

The National Federation Party leader Professor Biman Prasad says the Education Ministry has completely torn to shreds the true meaning and value of quality education.
In a statement yesterday Biman says the Ministry must clarify what is the meaning of attainment and its relevance to the pass or failure of the students.
The Education Minister Dr. Mahendra Reddy says the comments he made on Wednesday were misconstrued by the media and that he actually said “none of the students had failed.”
Dr. Reddy says the results show that all students have attained a certain degree of knowledge in spite of their total mark.
The Minister also backs his statement that there has not been any failures per-say, because he doesn’t want to demoralize students who have low marks.
The news has confused people like Sneh Lata whose son, Krishneel Chand who managed one hundred and seventy five out of four hundred marks.
“This news is confusing. If the minister is right saying 100 % pass rate then that means all students should pass."
Dr Reddy stresses that despite any result – all Year 13 students can still enter university or technical colleges.
