He said the decision on SSC and HSC examinations will be announced soon. The education minister will hold a press conference this week. There will be a decision on the test.
It is learned that if it is not possible to take this year’s SSC and HSC exams, the Ministry of Education is thinking of upgrading them in an alternative way. For this, several proposals have been prepared and sent to the Prime Minister.
The proposal states that only multiple-choice questions (MCQs) should be tested, excluding compositional or creative questions. Taking exams by reducing the subject and full standard (total number of exams). In this case, to integrate two papers of each subject.
Besides, the test will be taken on 100 marks instead of 200 marks. But in both cases, there is a need to improve the situation. In other words, if the infection falls below 10 percent, in-person exams will be taken after confirming the hygiene rules. The number of health care centers will be doubled compared to the current one.
If this is not possible, in case of SSC, results may be prepared considering 50 percent marks on Junior School Certificate (JSC) examination and 50 percent on Assignment and Class Activities. In case of HSC, it has been proposed to publish the results by combining 50 percent of the student’s SSC result, 25 percent of JSC’s, and 25 percent of the assignment test result.
The Prime Minister has approved a proposal in that regard. It has been sent to Education Minister Dipu Moni. She will be informed at a press conference this week to highlight the issue. Based on this, the education boards will start publishing the results.
