The results will be published after coordinating 75% of the SSC and 25% from the JSC-JDC results
Results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations 2020 will be published on Saturday.
The results will be announced at the International Mother Language Institute in the capital's Segunbagicha at 10:30am, said a press release of the Education Ministry.
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will join the result publication event virtually from Ganabhaban, it added.
The HSC batch of 2020 will be the first batch of students who will get certificates without sitting for the examinations as the government in October last year decided not to hold the examinations due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
It is the first time in Bangladesh history that a public examination has been cancelled.
The HSC and equivalent examinations were scheduled to begin on April 1 in 2020, but the government was forced to postpone it on March 22 because of the pandemic.
As many as 1,365,689 students were set to participate in the examinations.
Earlier on Monday, the government issued a gazette of three amendment bills for publishing the results of HSC and equivalent examinations without examination.
Before publishing the gazette, President Md Abdul Hamid assented to the bills.
The amendment bills were passed in parliament on Sunday, paving the path for publishing the HSC results without holding the tests.
These bills are "Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill 2021," "Bangladesh Technical Education Board (Amendment) Bill 2021," and "Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board (Amendment) Bill 2021."
As per the previous laws, there was no provision to publish the HSC results without holding examinations.
Since it was not possible to hold examinations amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the amendment bills were placed.
The cabinet earlier this month approved the draft bill for an amendment to the Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961 allowing the education boards to publish results without holding examinations during any crisis.
The results will be published after coordinating 75% of the SSC and 25% from the JSC-JDC results, Education Minister Dipu Moni said recently.
In October last year, the Education Ministry had formed a seven-member technical committee, headed by Additional Secretary Nazmul Haque Khan, for developing a method of evaluating the candidates based on their previous SSC and JSC results.
