|GPA 5 From JSC Is No Longer There|
The grading system is being reformed in the public examination. The same grading system will be implemented from JSC to university. The old method is GPA 1 instead of GPA 1.
The decision was taken at a meeting held at the International Mother Language Institute on grade change under the Ministry of Education on Sunday. The meeting was chaired by Education Minister Dipu Moni.
Dhaka University teacher Professor Shahadat Hossain, who is a member of the grade change committee in the public examination, presented the new grade system. The draft proposal was then finalized with the consent of everyone. However, two more meetings will be held in this regard, the official said.
The grade change proposal has shown that the highest GPA 1 will be made on the basis of number in JSC-JDC, SSC-equivalent, HSC-equivalent examination. In this case, A-GPA-1 up to 1-6, A-GPA-5.3 up to 1-6, 3-6 ‘B’ plus GPA-1, 4-5 ‘B’ GPA-2.3, 5- 1 ‘C’ plus GPA-2, 3-5 ‘C’ GPA 1.5, 3-5 ‘D’ GPA-1 and zero to 12 ‘F’ grade GPA-1 or Fail have been determined.
The meeting was attended by the Senior Secretary of the Secondary and Higher Education Department of the Ministry of Education. Sohrab Hossain, Director General of the Secondary and Higher Education Department Prof. Syed Ghulam Farooq, educationist, Madrasa Department General Director, Safiuddin Ahmed, Dhaka Education Board Chairman Professor. At. Ziaul Haque, Chairman of the Madrasa Education Board, Professor Kaiser Ahmed, was the Education Ministry official.
Speaking at the meeting, the Education Minister said that since this is a major activity, two more meetings need to be held before finalizing it. The grading system is changing in line with the world. It should be kept in mind that no one is harmed as a result of any change. In line with the fact that the same grading system is being followed in many countries of the developed world, it is important to change the grade for the benefit of our students.
He said that in many countries the students suffer due to lack of coordination with our grading system. Implementing the new system will solve that problem.
After the meeting, Professor Shahadat Hossain, a teacher of Dhaka University, said that the new GPA system would be implemented in coordination with the grading system of the university. It is also in sync with the outside world.
He said after the draft proposals regarding the new grade were sought, everyone agreed to seek their views. It has been decided to implement the GPA-5 method from Junior School Certificate (JSC-JDC) examination this year instead of the old method GPA-1. In view of that decision, the new methodology will be effective from the JSC-JDC examination conducted in November this year. The GPA-5 is being done in all lower-level public examination results in coordination with the university’s CGPA3.
