SSC, equivalent exams: 2.2m students await results

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina is scheduled to announce a summary of the results.

More than 2.2 million students who took the exams will be able to access their results from 12 pm through their educational institutions, education board websites and mobile phone SMS.

The SSC and equivalent exams are usually held in February every year, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the exams were deferred and schools were shut. The exams were finally held on Nov 14, nine months past the regular schedule.

Schools, colleges and universities were shut in March 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. SSC examinees were only able to attend in-person classes after schools reopened on Sept 12.

Altogether 2,227,113 sat for the SSC and equivalent exams this year.

This year’s exams were limited to three elective subjects and an abbreviated syllabus due to the pandemic closure.

Compulsory subjects like Bangla and English will be evaluated based on results from previous public examinations.
