“The pass rate dropped due to the new system adopted for answer script evaluation,” Nahid told reporters in Dhaka on Thursday. “Teachers across the country were provided with a guideline for script evaluation. Besides, head examiners and Bangladesh education development Unit also checked the answer scripts,” the minister added. He also claimed this year’s evaluation had been done properly. Regarding Comilla Board, the education minister said: “The students could not obtain good marks in Mathematics and English, so the board saw a large drop.”
