SSC exams for 8th and 10th of February rescheduled
07 February 2015, Nirapad News: The Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and its equivalent examinations, scheduled for February 8 and 10, have been shifted to February 13 and 14 respectively.
The government rescheduled the examinations as the Jamaat-e-Islami, part of BNP-led alliance called a 72-hour fresh Hartal from 6 am tomorrow (Sunday).
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid announced the new dates for the two examinations, “English 1st paper” and “English 2nd paper” at a press conference held at Chittagong Circuit House.
Nahid Said “We hoped that they (BNP-led alliance) will withdraw the Hartal for the examinations. We had repeatedly requested them not to call further Hartal during the examinations, but they did so again ignoring our request. We can’t push our examinees to any violent situation as we have the duty to ensure their security. So, we rescheduled the examinations. We urge the 20-party alliance not to call hartal during the examinations considering the future of our next generation.”
The minister hoped that the rest of the examinations will be held as per the schedule.
The SSC examinations on two subjects held so far had to be rescheduled because of Hartal.
