Exam TimeMarch is the month when the all important SLC exam is given in Nepal. SLC stands for “School Leaving Certificate”. It is roughly equivalent to our High School diploma. The exam is given after grade 10 and a person’s score on the exam plays a large role in determining his or her future. Certain scores qualify a person to study particular subjects in grades 11 and 12 and beyond. So you can see how very important this exam is to Nepali students.

These three Prison Fellowship boys are sitting for the SLC exam now in March. Arjun, Nakul, and Sonam have been preparing for the SLC exam for months. They hope to pass with marks that are high enough to qualify them for further study in the subjects of their choice. We are praying for their success!
