Everest 60 Top Higher Secondary Schools of Nepal is a ranking of all the colleges offering +2 courses in Nepal.
At the time of commencement of the survey, we found out that there are approximately 6400 schools and colleges across the country offering +2 courses. Out of these, 416 schools alone were located inside the Kathmandu Valley.
One of the interesting figures that we came across during the course of the survey was that ‘The Pass Out Record’. We had access to grade XI and XII ‘Pass Percentage’ data and it was 39.94 % (2069) and 44.13 % (2070) respectively. A total number of 2,85,468 students had appeared for the XI examinations and 2,42,480 for the XII examinations from all over Nepal in those years.
Historical data showed that these particular years were no exception. In both these Examinations, the pass percentage has consistently been below 50% over the years.
Table below shows data of past six years.
|YEAR||GRADE||APPEARED||PASSED||PASS %||GRADE||APPEARED||PASSED||PASS %|
Given the probability of acquiring information about all the six thousand plus schools spread all over the country , we knew it would be a futile exercise. Hence, more out of compulsion than desire, we chose to confine our survey to schools located inside the valley.
We provide here the final list, along with a summary of our ranking methodology. Everest List team thanks all those who have contributed to this initiative and congratulates the winners!
We surveyed colleges primarily via various contacts. However, we failed to gain the kind of information we were looking for from majority of schools and colleges we approached. Hence, the main source of information has been largely confined to whatever information that was available on the official websites of the respective colleges and schools.
- Student Acceptance Criteria (Number of IT students applied this year / Number of IT students enrolled this year)
- Student Faculty Ratio (Total number of current teachers / Total number of current students)
- Pass Percentage Ration ( Number of students appeared in board exams / Number of students successfully completed the course )
- Infrastructure (The quality of the college’s infrastructure)
- Facilities (Facilities available in the school)
It was, of course, a challenge to get all this data and we admit that we were compelled to make best guesses whenever exact numbers were not readily available.
We arrived at the final ranking on the basis of the following weights:
|Student Faculty Ratio: 10%||Pass Percentage Ratio: 5%|
|Student Class Size : 5%||Computer Labs / Internet: 20%|
|Student Acceptance Rate: 10%||Conveyance, Hostel, Canteen: 15%|
|Pass Percentage : 5%||Campus Area, Student Council: 15%|
|Computer Science Offered : 5%||Moderator’s discretion: 10%|
