The Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations slated for February 2 has been rescheduled for February 6 due to countrywide transport blockade and 72-hour hartal called by BNP-led 20-party alliance.
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid made the announcement at a press briefing held at the Secretariat on Sunday.
The SSC and its equivalent examinations will now begin on February 4. The other exams will be held on scheduled date, the minister said.
A total of 1,479,266 students are taking part in the SSC and equivalent exams this year.
