JASHORE: Nearly 1,700 higher secondary certificate (HSC) passouts have applied to Jashore Education Board for re-evaluation of their results.

The re-evaluation results are likely to be published on February 28.

According to Jashore Education Board, the results of HSC and equivalent exams of 2020 academic year were published on January 30.

The HSC batch of 2020 will be the first batch of students to get certificates without sitting for final tests, as it’s the first time in the history of Bangladesh that a public exam has been cancelled. A total of 1,21,528 students secured pass marks in HSC exam under the Jashore Education Board. Of them, 12,892 got GPA 5.

Prof Madhab Chandra Rudra, examination controller of Jashore Education Board, said, “The evaluation was done on the basis of the SSC and JSC results as per the order of the National Advisory Committee.”

He said the evaluation process was a tedious one. “To cobble together the results, the authorities concerned had to evaluate the JSC and SSC results of each and every student.”

Besides, there is a rule to apply for re-evaluation within seven days after publication of the results and a total of 1695 students have applied for it, he said.

They also have to deposit Tk 125 as fees for re-evaluation, said Rudra.

However, this year, the number of re-examination applicants is less than the previous year, said the examination controller.

A total of 1,21,528 students appeared for the HSC and equivalent exams in 2020 under Jashore Education Board. Of them, 61,761 were male students and 59,767 were female students. All have secured pass marks.

Some 12,892 students obtained GPA 5 -- 9,922 from science stream, 2,213 from humanities and 757 from commerce.
