Girls surpassed boys in this year's Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent examinations in terms of pass rate.
However, boys have done better as GPA-5 achievers.
A total of 10,61,614 students appeared for the HSC tests this year. Of them, 7,38,872 passed the exams successfully.
The pass percentage of female examinees is 70.23 while 69.04 percent of male students passed the examinations.
A total of 23,293 boys got GPA-5 while 19,601 girls obtained the distinction this year.
Education minister Nurul Islam Nahid mentioned girls’ success an optimistic aspect of 2015 HSC results after announcing the results through holding a press conference on Sunday.
Nurul Islam Nahid blamed ‘political impasse’ as one of the prime reasons for the relative lower pass rate of HSC.
The minister also said, “We’ll discuss and analyse the HSC results to find out the real causes of low pass rate."
