At least 33 students out of 276, who sat for the School Leaving Certificate (SLC) examinations, have made through the exams, which many regard as an ‘iron gate’. This year’s pass percentage is 11.95.

According to Caritas Nepal that oversees the Bhutanese Refugee Education Program, six students among those 33 passed in first division, 22 in the second division and five in the third division.

Some 15,000 Bhutanese students have passed SLC examinations in the last 22 years, informed Caritas Nepal.
