Under the Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education, the 2023 SSC and equivalent examinations will begin on April 30. SSC, Dakhil, Vocational exam will start on April 30.
Tapan Kumar Sarkar, Convener of Inter Education Board Coordinating Committee and Chairman of Dhaka Education Board informed this information.
The Ministry of Education has said that this exam will be held on the revised syllabus due to Corona. On the other hand, higher secondary and equivalent exams will be held in June.
Before the pandemic, the country used to start secondary exams in February. The 2022 Madhyamik exam started from September 15, delayed by seven months due to coronavirus and floods. Now that the situation has normalized, the government had already announced that this year’s SSC and equivalent exams will be held in April.
Subjects, syllabus, marks and examination time have been reduced in 2022 secondary examination due to learning shortage. The result was declared on 28 November. Due to the improvement of the epidemic situation, the government has already announced the decision to conduct examinations in all subjects in 2023.
Under normal conditions, students get 316 working days for SSC and 330 working days for HSC. Students were out of class for more than 8 months in 2021 due to the pandemic. That’s why short syllabus has been given for these students even though there are exams in all subjects.
On April 12, 2022, Education Minister Dipu Moni said, like 2022, SSC 2023 will be 150 working days and HSC 180 working days according to the revised syllabus.
Later on May 12 of that year, the inter-education board coordination sub-committee said that the examination of 100 marks in secondary and higher secondary will be held in 3 hours, only ICT subjects of secondary will have 50 marks.
Expressing the hope that the examination process will be completely normal in 2024, the president of this committee, Tapan Kumar Sarkar, said, “Class activities will continue in full swing from January.” So short syllabus is no more. From 2024, the exam will be based on the full syllabus.”
