Educations boards are completing the final preparations to publish the results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent exams by December amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the authorities are yet to fix a date for the announcement of the results.

Prof SM Amirul Islam, exam controller of the Inter-Education Board’s Coordination Sub-Committee said, “We are hopeful that we will be able to prepare the results in line with the commitment given by the education minister.”

“We are completing our preparations to publish the results in December,” he said.

This year’s HSC and equivalent exams were slated to begin on April 1 with about 1.4 million candidates expected to take part in the examinations. But it was eventually cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

On October 7, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said the examinees will be evaluated based on the results of the two public examinations they took previously. The examinations are Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and their equivalent exams.

The results of the evaluation of the candidates will be published by December this year, she said.

Later, Dipu Moni also said the HSC results will be made by 75 percent of SSC and 25 percent of JSC results.
