The three bills passed in the Parliament for publishing the HSC and equivalent results without examination have been published in the form of a gazette, as a result, the government will be able to publish the results of the HSC and equivalent examinations at any time as there is no legal barrier.
According to Parliament Secretariat sources, President M Abdul Hamid on Monday approved the ‘Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill 2021’, ‘Bangladesh Technical Education Board (Amendment) Bill 2021’ and ‘Bangladesh Madrasa Education Board (Amendment) Bill 2021’ passed in the Parliament on Sunday. President M Abdul Hamid has given consent to the three bills.
After the consent of the President, it was published as a gazette in the form of the Act. The Act states that the bills will come into force “immediately”. As a result, it became effective with the publication of the Gazette. Now, the government can announce the results of the HSC and equivalent examinations at any time.
It is to be noted that the government decided to publish the results without taking the 2020’s HSC exam, considering the health risks during the coronavirus outbreak period.
The existing act, however, needs to be amended as it prevents the publication of results without examination. As the act passed, the results of the 2020’s HSC, as well as SSC and equivalent examinations, can be published without any difficult situation in the future.
