The number of SSC examinees obtaining GPA-5 under the Chittagong education board has gone up by 836 following a review of the mathematics results.
With the new results announced on Wednesday, the number of students with GPA-5 in all subjects in the board also rose by 1,115 – from 1,991 to 3,106, according to Exam Controller Prof Mahbub Hasan.
The new mathematics marks also changed the grade points of 14,158 students under the Chittagong board.
Hasan told bdnews24.com the ‘Ga’ and ‘Gha’ sets of multiple-choice question (MCQ) papers for both Bangla and English mediums had certain dissimilarity that everyone, including the chief examiner, had missed.
“That led to inconsistencies in the results. But they have been corrected by identifying the errors.”
He said the new results had raised the number of students with GPA-5 to 8,502 from 7,666.
The results of the SSC and equivalent examinations were published on May 11, with a nationwide success rate of 88.29 percent and as many as 109,761 students scoring GPA-5.
The success rate in Chittagong was 90.44 percent. But that did not change with the new results, Prof Hasan said.
