Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni said, ‘I have discussed with the examinees, parents, teachers and concerned people about organizing HSC examination. We have taken opinions and suggestions from them. We have decided to cancel the HSC and equivalent examinations of 2020 after seeing the situation of many countries in the world regarding examinations. The grade number will be determined by canceling the direct examination and evaluating the results of JSC-JDC and SSC-equivalent examinations.
The education minister said a technical committee comprising general universities, BUET, education boards, and experts would be formed to decide and consult on the manner in which grades would be determined. They will be asked to report in the first week of November. Based on this, the results of the HSC-equivalent examination will be released in December.
Asked how they would be assessed in one, two subjects or the whole result was not as expected, the education minister said, “All students will be assessed equally and given grade marks.” However, how it will be given will be decided on the basis of the committee’s recommendation.
Asked what would happen to those who had prepared well for the HSC exams even though the results of the JSC and SSC exams were bad, Dipu Moni said, “There is no point in thinking about what to do or not to do.” The fight for survival is going on all over the world now, we don’t want to put anyone at risk by taking the test. Considering these issues, we have decided to publish the results of HSC-equivalent candidates on the basis of previous results.
“Even though we did not take the test directly, we decided to form a committee to publish the results in an international manner,” he said. Students do not have to face any problem to be admitted to the universities of the country and abroad after the results are published. However, a decision will be taken in consultation with the technical committee on the method of admission to our universities.
This time 13 lakh 65 thousand 69 candidates were supposed to participate in the HSC-equivalent examination. Of these, 10 lakh 79 thousand 161 are regular and 2 lakh 8 thousand 206 are irregular. Some of them were supposed to take the test again if they failed in one or two subjects. There were 3,390 private examinees and 16,626 due to bad results.
