The education ministry has fixed the exam fees for SSC candidates. Tk 1,550 has been fixed for students of humanities and commerce and Tk 1,650 for students of science. However, we came to know from recent news reports that some schools are charging SSC candidates additional fees. There have been allegations against a particular school in Dhaka which charged additional fees from students (Prothom Alo, December 8, 2018). Apart from exam fees, the school has collected board, coaching, session, and model test fees. Such unethical practices by school authorities must be brought to an end.
