HSC result debacle worries edn boards

Education boards have started assessing the reasons behind the sharp decline in grades in this year's Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examination, compared to the previous years.
They said that the students who studied thoroughly have passed the examination, but those who did not touch the overall chapters of the books have failed or could not do well in the exams.
The board officials said the interchange of question papers among boards is one of the reasons behind the bad results at the HSC level.
They said that this is the first time that the interchange of question papers between boards has taken place to avert the leakage of papers.
As the question papers have been interchanged, many students have a general tendency to leave the questions of the previous years during their preparations, but the examinees had to face the questions that they did not study, resulting in failure to answer the questions properly, the officials said.
Besides, the officials, in their primary assessment, found that the rescheduling of the exams, due to the anti-government movement unleashed by the BNP-Jamaat Alliance, is another cause for the bad results.
However, they said they would discuss the issue at the inter-board meeting soon.
Prof. Abu Bakkar Siddique, chairman of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, said, “We won't call this a disastrous result. Rather, the grades have declined to some extent than that of the previous year."

“However, we'll hold meeting with other education boards, to find out the reasons behind the bad results. But those students who studied properly have passed,” he added.
Tofazzur Rahman, controller of Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dinajpur, while talking to The Independent said, “Eighty percent result disaster is because of the interchange of questions. Earlier, the students had to answer the questions prepared by the respective boards, but this is the first time the interchange of questions was introduced.”
Asked whether the students knew it that the questions will be interchanged between boards, he said, "We did not inform the students about the interchange of questions.”
He further said that many students could not take proper preparations due to the rescheduling of exams, which is also responsible for bad results this time.
Rahman further said that he would take initiatives to discuss with the educational institutions from where no students passed this year.
This year, in the HSC results, no students passed from 35 educational institutions. Of them, five each from Dhaka, Rajshahi, Barisal, and Dinajpur boards, 13 from Jessore, and two from Madrasah board.
Madhab Chandra Rudra, controller of Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Jessore, said they are discussing the reasons of failure under their board.
"We are informally discussing about the failure of large number of students under the board. A total of 114,281 students took part in the exams, and only 53,087 students passed. So, we are seriously investigating the matter so that this is not repeated in the future,” he said.
