Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examination results will be published on 28 July.

Inter-board coordination committee president and Dhaka education board chairman Tanpan Kumar Sarker confirmed this to Prothom Alo on Wednesday.

Earlier, the education boards sent a proposal to the education ministry to publish results of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations between 25 and 27 July.

The government on Wednesday fixed 28 July for the publication of the results.

Generally, the education boards send three tentative dates for the publication of results of public examinations including SSC and HSC.

Consulting the prime minister's office, the education ministry fixes a date for the publication of results as the prime minister inaugurates the activities of result publications. The results are published on the day according to her schedule.

The SSC and equivalent examinations started on 30 April and were supposed to end by 25 May. The examinations were deferred several times due to cyclone 'Mocha'.

The results are published within 60 days after the completion of the exam. Accordingly, the results are supposed to be published in the last week of July.

There were over two million candidates under nine education boards, the madrasa board and the technical education board.
