Revised shorten syllabuses published for SSC, HSC exams

The government published revised shorten syllabuses for this year’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC), Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations in the face of criticism.

The syllabuses were published on the website of Dhaka Education board after it was approved at a meeting held with Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni in the chair on Thursday.

Earlier on January 25, the Dhaka education board published the curtailed SSC and HSC syllabuses prepared by the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB).

But the students, parents and teachers informed the education minister that the curtailed syllabus could not be completed within the allotted time of three or four months.

On January 27, the Education Ministry decided to revise the shortened syllabus amid massive criticism from students, teachers and guardians.

SSC and equivalent examinations are likely to be held in June this year while HSC exams in July or August if the Covid-19 situation becomes favourable.

The country’s educational institutions have been closed since March last year due to the covid-19 pandemic. The government extended the shutdown of all the educational institutions, except Qawmi Madrasah, a number of times until February 14.
