SSC exams to begin on Nov 14, HSC on Dec 227 September 2021
The much-awaited Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and their equivalent examinations will begin on November 14 and December 2 respectively, maintaining health protocols.
The Directorate of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education unveiled the schedules for the two public examinations on Monday.
This year, the two public examinations could not be held as per schedules due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the government decided to hold the examinations with shortened syllabuses.
The examinations will be held with short syllabuses on three elective subjects on group basis, and 24 assignments will be given for SSC students while 30 assignments for HSC students before the examinations, Education Minister Dipu Moni said in July.
No assignment will be given on Bangla, English and other compulsory subjects and the 4th subjects, she said.
According to the exam schedules, the SSC and its equivalent examinations will end on November 23 while that of HSC on December 30.
Earlier on July 15, Education Minister Dipu Moni hinted that the SSC, HSC and their equivalent examinations will be held either in the second week of November or the first week of December this year maintaining health guidelines if the Covid-19 situation improves in Bangladesh.
Educational institutions across the country had remained shut since March last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the closure was extended several times.
Finally, the government reopened the schools and colleges on September 13 following a marked improvement in the Covid-19 situation.
Last year’s HSC examinees were evaluated on the basis of their results of JSC and SSC exams, a decision which received a mixed reaction.
