Around 2.8 lakh Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) students, under Bangladesh Technical Education Board, are uncertain as to how they would be graded in the newly adapted HSC grading system.
The students take courses like HSC Vocational, HSC Business Management, and Diploma in Commerce that require them to sit for the final exams after finishing grade XI.
The scores of their final exams get added to their HSC results, said at least two officials of the technical education board.
"We are facing some difficulties. It is still uncertain how we will evaluate these candidates without their final exams' scores," said a top official of the board.
It is decided that their results would be announced based on their JSC and SSC results. However, we are yet to know about what to do with the final exam scores of these students, the official added.

The government on Wednesday decided to cancel this year's HSC and its equivalent exams due to health-safety concerns amid the coronavirus crisis.
Instead, candidates would be evaluated based on their results of Junior School Certificate (JSC), Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and their equivalent tests.
