Shortened syllabus prepared by NCTB cannot be completed within given time, say students, teachers, and parents

The Education Ministry has decided to revise the shortened syllabus for this year’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC), Higher School Certificate (HSC) and equivalent exams in the face of mounting criticism from examinees and teachers.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni issued the instructions on Wednesday following a meeting with the NCTB chairman and other officials and teachers involved with the syllabus to decide the next course of action.

Students, parents and teachers informed the education minister that the curtailed syllabus rolled out by the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) could not be completed within the allotted time of three or four months, said NCTB officials.

During the meeting, Dr Dipu Moni directed the preparation of a short syllabus that could be completed in three months for SSC and equivalent exams and four months for HSC and equivalent exams, according to media reports. 

She asked the relevant authorities to prepare a short syllabus within a week to make sure students developed core competency in the subjects and became eligible for the next class.

The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, published the curtailed SSC, HSC syllabus on Monday. 

SSC and equivalent examinations are scheduled to be held in June this year after the completion of the shortened syllabus.
