Subject Selection Process

  • English, Nepali, and Social Studies are compulsory subjects in
    grade 11.
  • While selecting the optional subjects in grades 11 and 12,
    students should choose one subject, each from three groups
    among the four groups specified by NEB. Besides, they may
    choose one more optional subject from the unchosen group
    if they wish. Schools offer more optional subjects based on
    the students’ desire and their potentials.
  • Those who choose to study Physics, Chemistry, and Biology
    both in grades 11 and 12 may study Mathematics as an
    optional subject if they wish to do so.
