grade eight dle science questions

Grade eight students have to face district level board exam at end of basic level schooling. Here we are going to inclucde some important grade eight DLE science questions. theses DLE science questions are prepared by very experience teachers. We hope that grade eight students will be benifited by this DLE science questions.


In each district of Nepal there is district level examination board. This board is responsible for the conduction of DLE board exam. Government has recently decided to prepare DLE questions according to the curriculum given by the government. Hence the private schools who are not following the government curriculum are in trouble at the moment.
