With an increased number of GPA 5 success, around 92.33% examinees of Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations have passed in the country in 2015, according to the results that were published yesterday.

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid handed the results over to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina at Ganabhaban around 10am. The prime minister then published the result.

The education minister later held a press conference at the Secretariat in the capital, where he disclosed different statistics regarding the results of 2015.

Of the nearly 2.3 million candidates, 2,098,082 passed in the exams. This time, the pass rate increased by 1.92% from the previous year’s 90.41%, he said. A total of 196,263 examinees scored GPA 5 this year, which is nearly 40,000 more than the GPA-5 scorers in 2014.

The number of schools achieving a 100% success decreased in 2015. This time, 8,583 schools managed to get a 100% pass rate, while in 2014 the number was 8,889.

But the number of schools with zero pass rate has also decreased – six less than the previous year’s number – which is a success, the minister said.

The average pass rate of the eight education boards in the country increased more than 2% this time – climbing to 92.31% from 2014’s 89.85%.

The Dhaka education board has the highest number of GPA 5 scorers – 64,010, while the Sylhet education board has the lowest number of GPA 5 scorers – 4,956.
