Staff Reporter, Dhaka
82pc pass in SSC exams

A total of 82.20 per cent students have passed the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and its equivalent examinations this year under 10 education boards across the country, showing a 4.43 per cent rise in the pass percentage from last year. The results published yesterday also show that 105,594 students secured the highest grade point average (GPA-5) this year. The chairmen of the education boards handed over the results to education minister Dr Dipu Moni at the International Mother Language Institute in Dhaka.

Usually, education board chiefs hand over the result summaries to the Prime Minister. As Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is on an official visit to the UK, the results were handed over to the education minister.  

A total of 2,135,333 students—1,064,892 girls and 1,070, 441 boys—appeared in the SSC and equivalent examinations under the 10 education boards in February.

In 2018, the average pass rate was 77.77 per cent for a total of 2,031,889 students, including 1,023,212 men and 1,008,687 women, appearing in the examinations. This year, girls secured better results than boys. The pass rate of girls under the 10 education boards is 83.28 per cent, while that of boys is 81.13 per cent.

Data shows that girls are ahead with 2.15 percentage points more than boys.

Girls outnumbered boys in terms of GPA-5 this year too. A total of 53,484 female students got GPA-5, while the corresponding number for male students is 52,110. Statistics show that 1,374 more girls have got GPA-5 than boys in this year’s exams.

Among the 10 education boards, the Rajshahi Education Board secured the top position with a 91.64 per cent pass rate. A total of 22,795 students secured GPA-5 from the Rajshahi Board. Last year, too, the education board had secured the top position among 10 education boards with a pass percentage of 86.07 in the SSC and equivalent examinations.

As in previous years, this year, too, the Sylhet Education Board is at the bottom of this year’s examination results in terms of the pass rate and GPA-5. The pass rate under the Sylhet Education Board is 70.83, while just 2,757 students secured GPA-5.

The pass rate of the Dhaka Board is 79.62 per cent, while it is 90.88 per cent under the

From eight general education boards, 1,403,157 (82.80 per cent) out of 1,694,652 students have come out successful in the examination. The pass rate was 79.40 per cent last year. Out of the students who passed, 5.58 per cent or 94,556 students have scored GPA-5, marking a significant decrease from last year’s 6.33 per cent or 102,845 students who scored the highest marks, according to statistics.

Under the Madrasa Education Board, both the pass rate and the number of GPA-5 scorers marked a rise in the Dakhil exams this year.

The pass rate is 83.03 per cent this year, while it was 70.89 per cent a year ago. A total of 6,287 students scored GPA 5 compared to 3,371 students in 2018.

Meanwhile, a total of 72.24 per cent students under the Bangladesh Technical Education Board have passed the SSC (vocational) exam this year. The rate was 71.96 per cent in 2017.

Out of a total 126,383 students, 91,298 of them passed this year. Moreover, a total of 4,751 students or 3.76 per cent scored GPA 5 in the exam, while the number was 4,413 in last year.

A total of 2,583 educational institutions under all the boards achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in the examinations, while the number was 1,574 last year.

Of those, 146 institutions are from Dhaka, 431 from Rajshahi, 132 from Comilla, 275 from Jashore, 30 from Chattogram, 50 from Barishal, 22 from Sylhet, 138 from Dinajpur, while 1,263 are under the Madrasa Board and 96 under the Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB).
