N24 Staff Writer, KATHMANDU:- Nepal Government has decided to end this year’s academic session in May, which was affected by the Coronavirus (Covid-19) epidemic, and start the academic session from June.

According to the revised rules, it has been decided to end this year’s academic session in May and start the new academic session from July 20, said Ministry of Education spokesperson Deepak Sharma.

Spokesperson Sharma said, “Based on the revised education regulations, we have decided to postpone this year’s academic session by two months.”

The revised Education Regulations stipulate that the Ministry may change the academic session if there is a need to change it due to epidemics or other similar disasters or remote mountainous areas.

A minimum of 180 days or one thousand hours should be taught in an academic session. Generally, the academic session starts in April and ends in Chait. Apart from public holidays and weekly holidays, the school operates for about 200 days. It also includes sports and extracurricular activities.
