A total of 107 academic institutions saw no students pass the exam this year

The government is to take stern action against institutions where none have passed this year's Secondary School Certificate (SSC) or equivalent examinations.

A total of 107 institutions will receive show-cause notices first, and then necessary action will be taken against them. This includes cancelling the Monthly Pay Order (MPO); plus gradually annulling academic approval, and approval for teaching and other government-provided facilities.

Officials of the respective education boards said this after the exam results were published on Monday. 

Among the 107 institutions with a 0% pass rate, 59 are Dakhil madrasas, which fall under the Bangladesh Madrasa Education Board (BMEB); 43 institutions fall under Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB); two under the Barisal Education Board; and one, each, under the Dinajpur, Rajshahi, and Jessore education boards.

Last year, 109 institutions saw no students pass the exam.

Addressing the issue BMEB Chairman Prof A K M Saif Ullah said: "We will now issue show-cause notices to all the institutions under our board."

"Recommendations will be made to cancel the MPO of these institutions that are enjoying this facility. 

"They will be asked to explain why something like this happened as, gradually, strict steps will be taken to cancel their academic certification and approval for teaching," he added.

Out of the 59 of such institutions under the BMEB,  eight are enjoying MPO facilities.

On the other hand, BTEB's Controller of Examinations, Dr Sushil Kumar Paul said the poor showing of the 43 institutions under their board is because of the students obtaining low marks in their practical exams.

“It will decrease for sure,” he said, adding that necessary steps will be taken against those institutions.

Echoing this, Education Ministry Technical and Madrasa Education Division Secretary M Alamgir said: "They have asked the respective boards to take action against those institutions that have a 0% pass rate while keeping the ministry informed regarding the action taken.

Barisal Education Board Chairman Prof Md Yunus said they have two such institutions that were issued with show-cause notices and further action will be taken against them.

When contacted, Rajshahi Education Board Exam Controller Dr Md Anarul Haq Prang said: "We have reduced the number of institutions with a 0% pass rate—with various steps and initiatives—while more are underway so that the number of institutions with none passing reduces to zero in the future."

Dinajpur Education Board Chairman Prof Md Abu Bakar Siddique said: "The number of such institutions is diminishing every year and such institutions will not exist in the future.

Students from a total of 28,673 institutions took part in the SSC and equivalent exams this year; and 107 institutions had a 0% pass rate.

However, 2,583 institutions had a 100% pass rate.
