PM: Pass rate dipped because of strict vigilance
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has said that the dip in pass rate in this year’s Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations was the result of strict vigilance. She made the comment after Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid handed her the exam results at the Ganabhaban around 12pm on Saturday. Directing the officials concerned to increase vigilance in education institutions, Hasina said: “The pass rate dropped because of strict vigilance. I am optimistic that it will go up in the future.” She added: “It is imperative that students focus on their studies. We are providing training to the teachers, and I believe the teachers’ training should get more priority.” The prime minister also emphasized the importance of updating the curricula to keep up with the changing times. Addressing the students who failed the exams, she said: “Focus on your studies so that you can pass the next exam.” The average pass rate in JSC and JDC exams this year is 83.65%. Pass rate in JSC is 83.10%, while 184,397 students achieved GPA 5. Meanwhile, the pass rate in JDC is 86.80%, while 7,231 students achieved GPA 5. Addressing the students, the prime minister said: “You have to focus on your studies, and always hold your heads high. One of you will be the prime minister of Bangladesh in the future.” Meanwhile, Primary and Mass Education Minister Mostafizur Rahman could not come up with any explanation on why the pass rate has dipped this year. The minister avoided answering a question on the issue at a press briefing at the Secretariat on Saturday. The article was first published on Bangla Tribune
