  • 1. Poor SLC results forcing many to quit studies Poor results in School Leaving Certificate exams in the recent years have had a negative impact on students in Saptari. With the constant decline in pass percentage in the Iron Gate exams, more and more youths are leaving their studies to take up foreign employment. According to data maintained by Saptari District Education Office, the pass percentage in SLC has been constantly decreasing in the past three years. While the pass percentage in regular category was 34.09 in 2068, it stood at 34 per cent in 2069, which again came down to 16.49 per cent in 2070. “What else could they do after failing the exams?” asked Tejulal Chaudhary, a lawmaker from Saptari Constituency No-5, adding a few of them fall in bad habits while the others opt for foreign employment. According to Tom Prasad Dahal, a first-class non-gazetted officer at the passport section at District Administration Office, as many as 28,662 persons in the district have applied for passport ever since Machine Readable Passport was introduced. “Of them most are below the age of 30,” he said.
