Forty-four students who appeared in the ongoing Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examinations are worried of their results as they took the exam of Physics in wrong question papers.
The students were mistakenly given the subject’s question papers for objective part of previous year’s syllabus instead of current syllabus at Louhajang Pilot High School exam centre (Louhajang centre 206) on February 27.
Authorities of the examination centre, however, informed the authorities concerned soon after the mistake was noticed.
On February 28, Jahirul Haque, secretary of the exam centre, wrote to the examination controller of Dhaka Education Board requesting to take necessary steps for evaluating the answers of the students by following the syllabus of 2014.
M Khalekujjaman, UNO of Louhajang, said he was informed about the matter and recommended to take necessary steps in the letter sent to the examination controller.
“The board authorities have assured us of taking necessary steps in this regards. We hope that results of the students will not be affected,” he said.
“It was a mistake of the authorities concerned, not of the students. Such mistakes can be happened at other examination centres in the country,” he added.
Talking to the Dhaka Tribune, many students among the 44, including Jakia Abedin and Salsabil Aktar, said they expected to get full marks in the objective part of the paper.
But the question papers of previous year’s syllabus badly affected their answers in the examination.
