What The Existing Laws Say :
There are three laws— Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961, Bangladesh Vocational Education Board Act 2018 and Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board Act 2020— when it comes to publication of HSC and its equivalent exams results.

Later on January 19, the Education Minister placed three amendment bills– Intermediate and Secondary Education (Amendment) Bill, 2021, Bangladesh Vocational Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021 and Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board (Amendment) Bill, 2021)—in the Parliament.
On the same day, they were sent to the parliamentary standing committee on the education ministry for further assessment.
The three amendment bills state that if it is not possible to hold examinations at the end of intermediate and secondary stage and any other stage due to pandemic, epidemic and Act of God or any other inevitable circumstances as determined by the government, it will announce to publish results through issuing an official gazette.
Background Checks On HSC Exams :
2020 HSC and its equivalent examinations were scheduled to begin from April last year. But in order to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, the government in October of the year decided to cancel the exams taking into considerations health safety concerns amid the pandemic.
