Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today asked people to refrain from "unnecessary criticism" of HSC and equivalent results that were published without holding exams.
She said the "futile" discussion will only put further pressure on the students, who are already affected due to the closure of educational institutions for a long time.
"The negative comments regarding the results will create psychological pressure on the students. I request those making such comments to stop (doing it)," she said while announcing the results of HSC and equivalent exams of 2020.
The results were officially announced at the International Mother Language Institute in Dhaka's Segunbagicha while Prime Minister Hasina joined through a video conference from Gono Bhaban.
Since no exam was held amid the coronavirus pandemic, the HSC results were based on the students' Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Secondary School Certificate (SSC) results. The results were published after coordinating 75 percent from SSC and 25 percent from JSC-JDC results.
