The Secondary School Certificate (SSC), Higher Secondary Certificates (HSC) and its equivalent examinations of this year will be held this year on three elective subjects of each group and with a reduced syllabus in line with health protocols.
The decision was taken considering the Covid-19 situation, said a press release issued on Monday signed by SM Amirul Islam, Examination Controller of the Dhaka Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education.
Mandatory subjects will not be assessed this year as they were evaluated in the past JSC, JDC and equivalent examinations while no exam will be taken on the fourth or optional elective subject.
Results of mandatory and optional subjects will be given based on subject mapping like last year which will be done based on the previous JSC, JDC, SSC, and equivalent examination results.
However, there is no opportunity to change or amend the 4th subject in the student registration card, the release said.
“The education ministry assured that there will be no negative impact on admission to higher education due to the evaluation system,” it added.
