SSC, equivalent exams begin today

Staff Reporter, Dhaka

The Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams will begin across the country today. A total of 2,135,333 candidates will write the exams this year. Among them 1,740,937 are regular students and 391,054 private students. Of the total examinees 1,070,441 are boys and 1,064,892 girls.

Students from 28,682 educational institutions will sit for the exams at 3,497 centres across the country. Compared to the exams held last year, the number of examinees has increased by 103,434 under 10 education boards this year, while the number of educational institutions has increased by 131 and the number of exam centres by 85. Meanwhile, the government has directed all coaching centres to remain closed till March 27 to prevent question paper leakage.

Education minister Dipu Moni will visit Bangamata Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib Government High School at Ashkona around 9:30am. To thwart the leakage of question papers, all question papers are packed in aluminum foils using

security tapes before they are sent to the exam centres.

Earlier, the ministry has made it clear that if the foil is opened even once, no one can seal it again. This step has been taken to prevent question paper leak. Besides, students will not be allowed to carry any electronic device, including cell phones, to the exam centres. The examinees will have to enter the centres 30 minutes before the start of the exam.

The education ministry has also issued a circular stating if any student fails to enter the exam hall 30 minutes before the beginning of the exam, his/her name, registration and roll number and the cause of delay will be recorded. After the exams, the details will be sent to the ministry.
