STAFF REPORTER
12 lakh sit for HSC exams from tomorrow

Over 12 lakh students will sit for the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations on April 3 under the 10 education boards, with an increase of 1,44,744 examinees compared to the previous year. The students will answer multiple choice questions (MCQ), followed by the creative/broad questions with a gap of 10 minutes between the two exams. Meanwhile, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid has warned of strict action if any teacher is found helping examinees cheat. “We will take the highest steps as per law against teachers who assist examinees at the centres,” he said. The minister was speaking at a press conference at the Secretariat on the forthcoming HSC and equivalent examinations.
A total of 12,18,628 examinees will take part in the examinations from 8,533 educational institutions under 10 education boards this year, whereas the number was 10,73,884 in 2015. Of the examinees in 2016, the male students are 654,114 and 564,514 females.
The theory examinations will conclude on June 9 and the practical examinations, after the written tests, are slated to be held during June 13-20. The students will answer 11 papers for six subjects under creative category, and 36 papers of 19 subjects.
Last year, the Information and Communication Technology subject was made compulsory, and this year, students will answer it under the creative method. On the dropout rate at the HSC level, the minister said, “The dropout rate in 2007-08 was 25 per cent, but now it is around 20 per cent.” He said, “The students dropped out at HSC level because of distance of the colleges from their house. Girls suffer the most as there are not enough hostels. Poverty and taking up jobs due to financial crisis in the family is also responsible for the dropouts.”
Under the eight general education boards, a total of 10,20,109 examinees will attend the HSC examinations from 4,133 educational institutions at 1,378 centres. Of the examinees, 5,25,6913 are male and 4,94,496 female students. Under the Madrasa Education Board, a total of 91,591 students will sit for exams from 2,708 educational institutions. Of the examinees, 52,603 are male and 38,988 female students. On the other hand, under the Technical Education Board, 1,02,132 students will participate in the exams. Of the students, 72,092 are male and 30,040 female.
Besides, a total of 262 students will take part in the HSC examinations at the seven overseas centres. Of them, 124 are male and 138 female students. The examinees in Humanities and Business Studies groups outnumber Science students this year under the eight general education boards. A total of 5,20,775 are under Humanities, while 306,387 examinees are under Business Studies, and only 1,92,947 under the Science group. The examinations will begin at 10 am and the afternoon sessions at 2 pm. The minister stated that exams will be held in an environment free of unfair means and only persons related to the examination will be allowed to enter the centres. Disabled students will get additional 20 minutes for answering the questions and those with special needs will get an additional 30 minutes.
