The wait of some 13, 99, 690 students will come to an end as the results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations of 2021 will be published on Sunday.
The results will be officially announced at the International Mother Language Institute at Segunbagicha in the capital at 11:30am, said the Education Ministry on Saturday.
After a 7-month delay caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and its equivalent examinations for the academic session 2020-21 were held in December 2021.
The SSC and the HSC examinations of 2021 could not be held as per the schedules due to the Covid-19 pandemic and then the government decided to hold the examinations with shortened syllabuses.
The SSC and equivalent examinations that began on November 14 concluded on November 23while the HSC exams concluded on December 30.
Educational institutions across the country had remained closed since March last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the closure was extended several times.
Finally, the government reopened schools and colleges on September 13 following an improvement in the Covid-19 situation.
Last year’s HSC examinees were evaluated on the basis of their results of JSC and SSC exams, a decision which received a mixed reaction.
