Results of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equal examinations will be published on May 9, subject to approval from the Prime Minister, officials say.
Inter-Board Coordination Sub-Committee chief Prof Taslima Begum told bdnews24.com on Sunday they sent a proposal to Sheikh Hasina to this effect.
It is a norm to seek the Prime Minister’s approval before publishing the results of public examinations. Following the approval, the Education Minister announces the results at a media briefing.
The SSC and its equivalent examinations began on Feb 3 and the month-long written tests ended on Mar 5.
A total of 1,303,203 candidates, from 27,063 educational institutions, sat the examinations and the figure was 116,854 fewer than that of the previous year.
This year, ‘creative questions’ replaced the traditional system except in Bangla second paper, English first and second papers and mathematics.
