3 bills passed in JS to publish HSC results

Three amendment bills have been passed in Jatiya Sangsad with an aim to publish the results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations.

The amendment bills were passed on Sunday (January 24).

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said, “The results will be published soon as these bills have been passed today.”

As per the existing laws, there is no provision to publish the results of the HSC and its equivalent examinations without holding examinations. But in the amendment bills, a provision has been kept to publish results without holding examinations under special circumstances.

The amendment bills were passed since it was not possible to hold examinations amid the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The three bills are- ‘Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill, 2021’, ‘Bangladesh Technical Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021’ and ‘Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021.

Now, the bills will be sent for the approval from president. After president's sign, the results will be published.

Earlier on January 19, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni placed the bills in the House and those were sent to the respective Parliamentary Standing Committee for further examination.
