SSC exam decision to be given on Wednesday
10 February 2015, Nirapad News: Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid says, the government will take decision about Thursday’s SSC examination on Wednesday as the BNP-led alliance extended its Hartal till Friday.
The minister requested the BNP-led alliance to postpone Thursday’s Hartal.
“If the postponement causes big problem for you , at least keep the SSC exam hours, including each two hours before and after the exam, out of Hartal purview,” he said.
The BNP-led 20-party alliance has extended its ongoing 72-hour nationwide hartal till 6am Friday.
The 20-party alliance has been enforcing a 72-hour hartal from 6am Sunday, despite nationwide SSC examinations in which about 1.5 million students are taking part. Four papers of SSC and equivalent examinations were rescheduled due to several hartals enforced by the BNP-led alliance.
Sunday’s English paper I exam was shifted to Friday and Tuesday’s English paper II exam was rescheduled to Saturday.
The SSC examination was scheduled to begin on February 2 with the Bangla paper I. But the exam was shifted to February 6 because of 20-party alliance’s 72-hour hartal.
Later, the Bangla paper II exam which was scheduled for February 4, was shifted to February 7 as the opposition alliance extended its shutdown till 6 am on February 6.
