Publishing HSC results without exams: Parliamentary body finalises 3 bills

A parliamentary body today finalised three bills to publish the results of the HSC and equivalent examinations by January 28.

The bills will be placed before the House.

Workers Party MP Fazle Hossain Badsha presided over the meeting at the Jatiya Sangsad Bhaban in Dhaka in absence of the committee chairman Afsarul Amin, also a ruling Awami League lawmaker.

The bills are -- 'Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill, 2021', 'Bangladesh Vocational Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021' and 'Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021'.

Earlier in the day, Education Minister Dipu Moni placed the bills in the House and they were sent to the parliamentary standing committee on the education ministry for further assessment.

The committee was asked to submit its reports on 'Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill, 2021' within one day while two days were given for 'Bangladesh Vocational Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021' and 'Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021'.

It was proposed to promulgate three ordinances amending 'Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961', 'Bangladesh Vocational Education Board Act 2018' and 'Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board Act 2020' to publish the results of HSC and equivalent candidates.

While placing the bill, the education minister said as per the existing laws, there is no provision to publish the results of HSC and equivalent exams without holding tests.

Since it is not possible to hold examinations during the Covid-19 pandemic, the amendment bills were placed, she added.

The results will be published after coordinating 75 percent of the SSC and 25 percent of JSC-JDC results, Dipu Moni told the media earlier.

The Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations were postponed this year due to Covid-19 situation.

Earlier on January 11, the cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina approved amending the Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961, Bangladesh Vocational Education Board Act 2018 and Madrasa Education Board Act 2020 allowing the education boards to publish results without holding examinations during any crisis.
