The government introduced the JSC and JDC examinations for Class VIII students in 2010 abolishing the Junior Scholarship Examinations. Students are given scholarship based on their JSC and JDC exams results.
The education minister, Nurul Islam Nahid, handed over a copy of the results to the prime minister, Sheikh Hasina, in the morning.
Nahid later made public the results at a press briefing at the ministry. Nahid said that some steps the ministry had taken had played a significant role in improving the JSC and JDC results this year.
‘As the results of optional subject were added to main results, number of GPA 5 scorers and pass rate increased significantly this year,’ Nahid said.
The results were made available with schools and district and upazila education offices and on web site www.educationboardresults.gov.bd. Students could also get the results by sending text messages to mobile operators.
No students of 57 schools and madrassahs came out successful while all the students of 4,997 schools and madrassah passed the examinations.
Educational institutions in urban areas did well than the institutions in rural areas showed the result.
The results showed that none of the 5 best institutions under the Dhaka, Chittagong Rajshahi, Jessore, Dinajpur, Comilla education boards were from a rural area, only one each from Barisal and Sylhet education boards were from rural areas.
This year the results of cadet college students declined comparing to results of the previous years.
The results showed that no cadet college was among the 5 best institutions under the Dhaka, Rajshahi, Chittagong and Dinajpur education boards. Cadet colleges, however, were placed in the list of five best performing institutions in Sylhet, Barisal, Khulna and Comilla boards.
In 2012, cadet colleges had got top two positions of five best institutions of Rajshahi, first and fourth position of Comilla, top position in Jessore, third in Chittagong and first places in Barisal, Sylhet and Rangpur education boards.
Many guardians in the capital said that they did not went to schools to collect the results of their children amid prevailing tensed situation as ruling and opposition parties came face to face in street triggering clashes at different points in the capital.
They said they collected result through SMS or on internet.
Examinations of six days were deferred because of general strikes enforced by the Bangladesh Nationalist Party-led alliance.
