The results of Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and its equivalent examinations will be published in the first week of January.

Besides, the government is planning to hold next year’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams in June and HSC examinations in July-August.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni came up with the information at a virtual press briefing on Tuesday, saying that “We would hold the exams if the Covid-19 situation is favourable.”

Dipu Moni said the government is also contemplating arranging lessons for

SSC candidates at classrooms in between February and April. HSC candidates will be able to join classes from February and May. Meanwhile, the results of the HSC examinations will be published after the issuance of an ordinance in this regard in the first week of January.

“An ordinance will be issued as a legal process for publishing the results of the HSC exams as there was no formal examination. The results will be published after coordinating the results of the JSC and the SSC exams,” she said.

She also said, “Experts have given their opinions over the coordination process and if any student doesn’t not get his/her desired results, then he/she can apply to the board. I hope there'll be no such incident.”

The results will be published after coordinating 75 percent of the SSC and 25 percent from the JSC-JDC results, said the education minister.

About reopening of the school, Dipu Moni said all educational institutions in the country may open in February next year.

She said classes could be held from February to May if the coronavirus situation is under control and the authorities will try to complete the syllabus in this time frame.
