A total of 396 students, who secured GPA-5 in Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Secondary School Certificate (SSC), could not obtain the maximum grade point GPA-5 in Higher Secondary Certificate due to ‘Subject Mapping’.
As no exam was held in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, the results of HSC exam was prepared through the ‘Subject Mapping’ process, an evaluating process on the basis of the marks of JSC and SSC exams. Except fourth subjects, results were prepared calculating marks of main subjects in both JSC and SSC examinations.
Consequently, the students who secured GPA-5 in previous exams with the support of 4th subject did not make it this time as the results were published after coordinating 75 percent marks from SSC/equivalent examinations and 25 percent marks from JSC/JDC examinations in main subjects.
“The number for Bangla, English and ICT was determined by coordinating 75 percent from SSC/equivalent examination and 25 percent from JSC/JDC results in the three basic subjects”, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni told a press conference on HSC and equivalent results at International Mother Language Institute here.
For the science group, the number for Physics, Chemistry, and Biology/Higher Math was determined by coordinating 75 percent from SSC and 25 percent from JSC/JDC results in those subjects, she added.
Overall evaluation process was done on the basis of numbers obtained in main subjects in previous two exams coordinating the number of SSC/ equivalent and JSC/JDC bringing bad luck for the students who got GPA-5 in the previous exams with very close numbers or with the support of 4th subject.
As many as 215 students of eight overseas centres came out successful in the HSC examinations-2020 with 100 percent pass rate.
According to the results published here today, 62 overseas students got GPA-5 while the number of GPA-5 achievers is 25 in 2019.
