Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Saturday said there will be no ranking of best performing schools and colleges based on the results of public examinations from the next year.
"There will have no list of 20 best-performing educational institutions on the basis of five academic standards next year as some top schools were found  involved in corruption to acquire the rank", he said while announcing the results of this year's SSC and equivalent exams at a press briefing in the ministry.
The minister said some educational institutions selected the exam centres as per their choice and some teachers helped the examinees in the centre during the examination.  
He said a group of dishonest teachers leaked the question papers by opening the sealed packets one and two hours before the beginning of the examinations.
A school teacher of BAFShaheenCollege center was held in the city when the sealed packet of a MCQ question paper was found opened before the scheduled time, he said.
"We are thinking to cancel the system of MCQ examinations of 40 marks to prevent the new technique of the question paper leakage. We will take finial decision over the matter after discussion with educationists" said Nahid.  
He said the government will take legal action against those teachers who were involved in the question paper leakage, even the institution involved in the misdeeds will be excluded from the MPO list.
Earlier, the Education Ministry introduced ranking of top 20 schools under each board on the basis of five academic standards-the number of students registered with a college, percentage of regular students among those registered, percentage of successful students, the number of examinees scoring GPA-5, and the average GPA of an institution.    ?UNB
