HSC examination
The results of the HSC and equivalent examinations for 2020 may be announced next Sunday, January 31. Education Minister Dipu Moni has said that the results will be announced this month as the legal hurdle of announcing the results without examinations has been removed.

The results are officially published after the Education Minister hands over the results to the Prime Minister.

The Ministry of Education has sent a proposal to the Prime Minister to release the results of HSC and equivalent examinations next Saturday, January 30 or Sunday, January 31. However, the results are expected to be published on Sunday.

The government on Tuesday, January 26 published a gazette giving the power to prepare, publish and distribute HSC results to the education boards as it was not possible to take the test in the corona virus.

Through this, the government gave this power to the Madrasa and Technical Education Board along with nine general boards as per the recommendation of the Advisory Committee of the Department of Secondary and Higher Education and the Technical and Madrasa Education Department.

According to the Gazette, the laws have been amended as it is not possible to take the Higher Secondary Examination to be held in 2020 due to the ongoing global epidemic Corona virus.

The boards have been given this power on the basis of the recommendations of the advisory committee formed in this regard under the power of the amended law.

The inter-education board said the results are ready. With the approval of the Prime Minister, the date of publication of the results will be finalized.

To publish the results of higher secondary without examination, the government issued ‘Gazette’ of ‘Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Act-2021’, ‘Bangladesh Technical Education Board (Amendment) Act-2021’, ‘Bangladesh Madrasa Education Board (Amendment) Act-2021’.

Last year, 13 lakh 65 thousand 789 students of 11 education boards were supposed to take HSC and equivalent examinations. The exam was supposed to start on April 1 of that year. But when the outbreak of coronavirus began to increase, all educational institutions in the country were closed from March 17. Later, at a press conference on October 7, Education Minister Dipu Moni announced the decision to cancel the HSC exams as well as the fifth and eighth grade finals.

The Education Minister said that HSC results will be determined by averaging the results of JSC and SSC. The results of JSC-JDC will be considered as 25 per cent and the result of SSC will be considered as 75 per cent.
