Pelkhil School offers Continuing Education classes for adults keen on completing their high school education.The Pelkhil Continuing Education Centre is the only such centre in Thimphu.

The centre offers the Bhutan Higher Secondary Examination Certificate (BHSEC) in the Arts and Commerce streams. From 2018, the Science stream is discontinued due to the very high laboratory costs that cannot be recovered from the very low continuing education fees.

CE candidates must have completed the BCSE(X) at least 12 months prior to applying for the BHSEC(XII) CE program. The application form must be accompanied by their BCSE results and the Transfer Certificate from their last school.

All CE students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner becoming of adult students and abide by the rules of the school.


The CE fees have not been revised for more than 15 years as the Ministry of Education does not permit the fees to be raised. The fees are no longer able to pay the salaries for the teachers providing the service. A third request has been submitted to the Ministry for fee revision which is pending approval.
