Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Tuesday (Apr 12) said the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations of 2023 will be held in April and June respectively on short syllabuses like this year's.
"SSC/Dakhil and equivalent exams of 2023 will be held following the academic syllabus of 2022 while HSC/Alim and equivalent exams of 2023 will be held following the syllabus fixed for 2022 based on 180 working days," she said at a press conference at the Secretariat, local media reported.
Noting that usually the SSC/Dakhil and equivalent exams are held in February and HSC/Alim and equivalents in April, Dipu Moni said but the SSC and equivalent exams of 2023 will be held in April and HSC and equivalents in June as the students could not attend the classes due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
She, however, said both the SSC and HSC and their equivalent exams will be held on all subjects and evaluated on full marks.
Besides, this year's SSC and equivalent exams are scheduled to begin on Jun 19 and HSC on Aug 22 in 2022 following shortened syllabuses.
