SSC, equivalent exams from June 19
This year's Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and its equivalent examinations will begin on June 19, about three and a half months later than usual.
Theoretical exams will end on July 6, and practical tests will be held between July 13 and 19, according to an order.
Students will take the Bangla 1st paper test on the first day of the exams, which will start at 2:00pm.
They will take tests on more subjects this year compared to last year.
Like the previous year, SSC exams this year will also be held on a shortened syllabus and for fewer marks than usual.
Last year, SSC candidates sat for tests on only three optional subjects with a shortened syllabus and fewer marks due to the pandemic.
This year, candidates will have to sit for tests on Bangla, English, Mathematics, and a fourth subject, besides the three optional subjects.
They will not need to sit for exams on religion, ICT, Bangladesh and Global Studies, and Science.
