Dhaka Board to begin HSC registration from June 29

The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka on Friday directed students to complete their registration by July 11 for this year’s Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSC) exam amid a worrying surge in Covid-19 cases across the country.

The form fill-up process will stay open from June 29 to July 11, according to a notice issued by the board on Friday.

The  notice also instructed colleges not to hold eligibility tests this year and also asked the institutions concerned not to collect any fees for that purpose.

Educational institutions across the country have remained shut  since March last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

HSC examinees were evaluated on the basis of their results in JSC and SSC exams last year, a decision which received a mixed reaction.

Recently on June 13, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said that  her ministry is making preparations to take SSC and HSC examinations this year with a shortened syllabus.

However, the minister also said that the ministry is also considering alternative options in case the covid situation worsens in the country.
