Although she passed the exam, she did not attain her desired result

A girl has reportedly committed suicide at her residence in Dhaka’s Bangshal as she did not attain her desired result in her Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination.

The incident occurred early on Tuesday.

Family members—including her father—took Mithila, 15, to the emergency unit of Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH). There, the on-duty doctor declared her dead on arrival around 2:30am, confirmed Sub-Inspector (SI) Bacchu Miah, DMCH police outpost in-charge.

According to police and Mithila’s family, she reportedly hung herself in her room because she did not get her desired result, despite passing the exam.

Mithila was the eldest of two sisters, who lived with their parents in Bangshal’s Nazimuddin Road. 

The SSC results were unveiled by Education Minister Dipu Moni, in Dhaka, on Monday. Although the pass rate has risen this year, the number of GPA-5-holders has diminished.
