Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

80.35pc pass SSC exam


The results of this year`s Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations were published Thursday with 80.35 percent passes, lower than last year`s.

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid handed over copies of the results to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina as part of a set ceremony of result publication.

A total of 104,761 students scored GPA 5 out of the 1,786,613 who took the exams on copletion of secondary schooling.

The success rate last year was 88.29 percent and 109, 761 obtained GPA 5. The figures show a drop in both the success rate and score of the highest average grade.

Like in the last year, girls took the lead this year, too, achieving a pass percentage of 80.78 as against boys’ 79.93.

Speaking at the PMO ceremony, Education Minister Nahid said he was not surprised by the decrease in the success rate.

"The exams this time were held in an atmosphere free from cheating. The examiners earlier would not evaluate the answer scripts properly. This time that has not happened."

Prime Minister Hasina termed the change in the method of examining the answer script `timely." 

Congratulating those who passed, she stressed building residential institutions in remote areas like the haors, chars and hill tracts. "We want everyone to get the opportunity to go to school."

The theoretical SSC and equivalent exams took place between Feb 2 and Mar 2, while the practical exams were held between Mar 4 and Mar 11.

About 1.43 million students sat for the SSC exams under eight general education boards, 256,501 students under the madrasa board and 104,212 students for the SSC vocational exams.

The education minister said the success rate in the SSC exams stands at 81.20 percent, 76.20 percent in the madrasa board and 78.69 percent in the vocational exams.

Later, the minister presented a summary of the results of the secondary exams at a press conference at the secretariat. Individual results were to be available to students at 2pm.
