Results of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams will be published today.
Examinees would get their results online and via SMS this year as the authorities decided to avoid the traditional method due to coronavirus situation in the country, said education ministry officials.
Over 13.23 lakh examinees and their guardians who registered earlier would receive their results on their phones via SMS. Rest of them would be able to see their results online.
Prof Ziaul Haque, chairman of Dhaka Education Board, said those who pre-registered would get their results between 12:00 noon and 1:00pm.
All preparations for publishing the results have been completed, added Ziaul, who is also the head of the inter-board coordination committee.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will announce the result through videoconference in the morning and Education Minister Dipu Moni will later hold a press conference on the results through Facebook, said Mohammad Abul Khair, public relations officer of the education ministry.
This year, the SSC and equivalent exams began on February 3, with the theoretical and practical tests ending on February 27 and on March 6 respectively.
The government earlier planned to publish the results on May 7 or May 8, but could not publish it due to school closure due to Covid-19.
Some 2,047,779 students took part in the SSC and equivalent exams held at 3,512 centres. Like the previous years, results will be also available on the education board website.
Examinees can get the results from the education board website -- http://www.educationboardresults.gov.bd/ -- and also from the websites of respective education boards.
