The education ministry will publish the results of SSC and equivalent examinations this month though the coronavirus shutdown continues.
According to media reports, the inter-board coordination subcommittee Chairman Md Ziaul Haque confirmed the decision on Monday.Earlier, Secondary and Higher Education Secretary Md Mahbub Hossain had said the results would be published within two weeks from the reopening of offices.
The government-enforced general holidays of offices, which started on Mar 26, have been extended to May 16 to curb the spread of coronavirus.
The lockdown has been eased but educational institutions are not reopening this month.
Ziaul said the officials were now taking preparation to publish the results by bringing the OMR sheets to the boards from different regions with the help of the Post Office.
The online college admission process will begin after the publication of the results, with the Dhaka board taking the central role, he said.
More than 2 million students registered for the SSC and equivalent exams in February.Another official said the postponed HSC exams, which had been slated to an Apr 1 start, will begin until after the situation improves.
