In Nepal, Normally is a son gets failed in SLC (School Leaving Certificate) exam then he would thought to not being serious on his study. So his parents would more likely to send him abroad to work and earn money so that he can live (expected) happily when he will returns back after making enough money there.
One the other hand, if a girl gets failed on SLC exam her parents are more likely to get her married and start her (happily ???) married life.
