The Boards of Education have announced the probable dates of SSC examination on June 19 and HSC examination on August 22 this year.
The notification was issued on Monday (February 28).
Earlier, in a meeting on Sunday (February 27), various board chairmen put forward a set of proposals. The Inter-Education Board Chairman’s Committee has proposed to exclude some subjects in SSC and HSC examinations.
According to meeting sources, it has been recommended to omit three subjects in SSC this time. The topics are: ICT, Religion, Bangladesh and Global Studies. And ICT will be left out in HSC.
And with the division of numbers, it has been proposed that in those subjects where there is no practical exam, there will be an examination of 55 marks (Creative 40, MCQ 15). And in the subjects where there is practical exam, 45 marks (Creative 30, MCQ 15) can be taken.
Besides, most of the board chairmen have voted not to take the test in SSC and HSC.
Professor Tapan Kumar Sarkar, chairman of the Inter-Board Coordination Sub-Committee on Education, told Samay Sangbad that “many proposals have come, but no final decision has been taken yet.”
