Education minister Dipu Moni on Thursday told the parliament that the college admission process for the students, who passed Secondary School Certificate examination this year, would start soon.

Replying to a question of treasury bench lawmaker M Shafiul Islam, the education minister said that the admission process will be started following the existing guidelines.

The process remained halted for months due to the COVID-19 crisis, which claimed over 2,000 lives in Bangladesh so far.

‘Education Boards are ready for admission and it will start soon,’ she said in her scripted answer tabled in the house.

A total of 82.87 per cent candidates have passed this year's SSC and equivalent examinations with 1, 35,898 students achieving GPA-5 across the country.
