The three amendment bills were passed in parliament on Sunday

President Abdul Hamid has given his assent to three bills adopted in the eleventh session and first session in 2021 of the 11th Jatiya Sangsad (JS).

According to an official handout issued on Tuesday, the president gave the assent to those three bills on Monday, reports BSS.

The bills are – Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill, 2021, Bangladesh Vocational Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021, and Bangladesh Madrasa Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021, the handout said.

The three amendment bills were passed in parliament on Sunday, paving the path for publishing the results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations by January 28 without holding the tests.

Education Minister Dipu Moni moved the bills in the House and they were then passed by voice vote.

It was proposed to promulgate three ordinances amending "Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961," "Bangladesh Technical Education Board Act 2018," and "Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board Act 2020" to publish the results of the HSC and its equivalent examinations.

As per the existing laws, there is no provision to publish the HSC results without holding examinations.

Since it was not possible to hold examinations amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the amendment bills were placed.

The HSC and its equivalent examinations were postponed in October 2019 due to Covid-19 situation.

The cabinet earlier this month approved the draft bill for an amendment to the Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961 allowing the education boards to publish results without holding examinations during any crisis.

The HSC batch of 2020 will be the first batch of students who will get certificates without sitting for the examinations as it is the first time in Bangladesh history that a public examination has been cancelled.
