The Ministry of Education is planning to conduct the SSC and HSC exams in June and July-August.
As a result, this year's syllabus has been formulated by planning to hold classes for 60 working days in SSC and maximum 80 working days in HSC after the opening of educational institutions.
Short Syllabus for SSC-HSC Exams has been released again. The syllabus prepared by the National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) was released by all the education boards last Thursday night.
Earlier on January 25, the SSC short syllabus was withdrawn.
It is known that the short syllabus was submitted to the Inter Education Board Coordination Subcommittee in a meeting held at NCTB last Thursday.
On behalf of NCTB, Inter Education Board Coordination Subcommittee President and Dhaka Education Board Chairman Professor Nehal Ahmed accepted the syllabus.
They are then sent to all the boards and released at night.
An official of NCTB said that a new subject-wise syllabus has been prepared with only those chapters that have not been read.
In the reduced syllabus, the question division and marking structure will be correct in all subjects. That is, the question paper will be prepared from the syllabus that has been prepared.
However, there have been some changes in the question structure in English. In this, several parts including narration, sentence structure of English grammar have been omitted. Also, essays should not be written in English.
On January 25, the Dhaka Education Board released the SSC short syllabus. With which the students objected. Teachers, students and parents say that it is not possible to complete the short syllabus published in three or four months.
After that, on the instructions of the Education Minister, initiatives were taken to shorten the syllabus. On January 27, NCTB was tasked with making the syllabus more concise. Their time was fixed till February 4 last.
Those concerned say that 20 to 30 percent was omitted from the syllabus published in the first phase. But this time 30 to 35 percent chapters have been selected for each subject and the syllabus has been formulated.
Since the Ministry of Education is not willing to give autopass in any way, therefore the short syllabus of SSC-HSC has been formulated so that the students can pass easily.
