An order of the Dhaka Education Board allowing admission of the Class XI into Catholic Church operated four colleges in Dhaka city--Notre Dame College, Holy Cross College, St. Joseph High School and College, and St. Gregory's High School and College-has been suspended.
The Dhaka Board of Education issued an order in this regard on Wednesday. The order reads that the admission of students into the Class XI at these four colleges has been suspended taking the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and other issues into consideration.
Earlier on Tuesday, those four colleges were instructed to inform the Dhaka Board of Education officially after completing their admission processes into the Class XI by June 20.
An official of the Dhaka Board of Education said the four colleges were asked to complete their admission processes in compliance with the hygiene rules. "Later, it has been suspended on Wednesday, taking the entire situation into consideration."
The permission given earlier has been suspended so that no student is infected with coronavirus. Once the situation becomes normal, the colleges would be allowed to start their own admission processes, he said.
Meanwhile, Notre Dame College, Holy Cross College, St. Joseph High School and College, and St. Gregory's High School and College published advertisements for student admissions in their own way on Tuesday.
The Notre Dame College authorities withdrew the advertisement after the board postponed the application on Wednesday.
The results of SSC and equivalent examinations were published on May 31 where the average pass rate was 82.87 per cent.
