The Higher Secondary Certificate and equivalent exams results will be published in the first week of January, education minister Dipu Moni said in an online briefing on Tuesday.

‘The result is ready and now we are waiting for the promulgation of an ordinance to give legal protection to the results,’ Dipu Moni said, adding that the promulgation of the ordinance was under process.

Results of the 13, 65,789 candidates under 11 educational boards would be published based on an evaluation method developed by a technical committee formed by the education ministry.

The results of Secondary School Certificate and Junior School Certificate examinations would be considered for determining the results of an HSC examinee.

The scheduled HSC and equivalent examinations was cancelled on October 7 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

In October, the education ministry formed a seven-member technical committee, headed by additional secretary of the ministry Nazmul Haque Khan, for developing a method of evaluating students based on their previous SSC and JSC results.
