HSC, equivalent exams begin today

Update : 31 Mar 2015, 07:47 PM

The Higher Secondary Certificate exams begin today amid political agitations sponsored by the BNP-led 20-party alliance.

More than 10 lakh students will take part in the HSC and equivalent exams this year – 67,490 fewer than last year.

The theoretical tests are scheduled to be held between April 1 and June 11; the practical exams will be held between June 13 and June 22.

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid yesterday said the government decided to hold the exams as per schedules despite the ongoing political turmoil.

“We are holding this year’s exams in an unusual situation in which the students are panicked,” he said. “The students will lose a year from their academic lives if the exams are not held on time.”

The 20-party alliance has called a 24-hour nationwide hartal for Thursday, while the Dhaka and Chittagong city corporations will remain out of the hartal purview.
