SSC, equivalent exams postponed

The government today postponed this year's Secondary School Certificate and equivalent examinations, scheduled to begin on June 19, due to the worsening flood situation in the country.

The SSC general, vocational and Dakhil examinations, scheduled to start on Jun 19, have been suspended due to flooding in some districts, according to the Ministry of Education.

The revised schedule for the exams will be announced at a later date, according to a notice issued by the education minister’s office on Friday.

Sylhet, Sunamganj, and several other districts have experienced serious flooding in the past few days.

MA Khair, a spokesman for the Ministry of Education, said the decision had been taken after the flooding situation worsened in Bangladesh.

Over 2 million students were to sit for the SSC exams this year.
