All education boards have completed preparation to publish the results of this year’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams.

The Education Ministry sources said the result of SSC and equivalent exams will be published soon after Eid-ul-Fitar through SMS due to coronavirus pandemic.

This year the ministry will not hold any press conference to announce the results. The students will receive their results on their cell phones.

According to board officials, for the first time in the history of Bangladesh, the results of SCC and equivalent exams will reach examinees or their guardian’s mobile phones through SMS. The education boards have started pre-registration of the candidates through SMS in this regard.

Monjurul Kabir, senior systems analyst at Dhaka Education Board said, “This is the first time that we are pre-registering candidates, and will send their results to their mobile phones.” “We have started sending messages to all cellphone providers and hope that all candidates and/or their parents will registrar for their results,” he said. Meanwhile, the Dhaka Education Board has sent the copy of the results of the SSC and equivalent exams to the Education Ministry for the approval to publish it.

Prof Ziaul Haque, chairman of the Dhaka Education Board, said, “The results are ready. We just need a nod from the ministry. We could publish the results anytime.”

Prof Ziaul Haque, also the head of the inter-board coordination committee, said this year students will not be able to collect their results from educational institutions. The Education Ministry had a plan to publish the results on May 7, but failed due to the Covid-19 outbreak in the country. This year, the SSC and equivalent exams began on February 3, with the theoretical and practical tests ending on February 27 and March 6 respectively. Some 20,47,779 students took part in the SSC and equivalent examinations held at 3,512 centres from around 29,000 educational institutions across the country.
