The Dhaka education board has relieved Md Akteruzzaman, centre secretary of a school in Dhaka, of his duties after he provided the students with the wrong set of SSC questions for physics, history of Bangladesh and world civilisation examinations.
The board sent an order on Sunday saying that the centre chief of Madartek Abdul Aziz Higher Secondary School supplied the students with set No. 2 instead of No. 4 for the examinations on Saturday, reports bdnews24.com.
The “irresponsible action” is in breach of the rules of conducting examinations and is a punishable offence, it added.
Golam Mostafa Bhuiyan, the assistant headmaster of the school, replaced Akteruzzaman as centre secretary.
Md Abul Bashar, the examination controller of Dhaka education board, said: “Examinations in all centres in Dhaka, apart from this one, were held on set No. 4 that day. The centre secretary has been sacked for neglecting his duty.”
He added that the answer sheets from the centre will be “evaluated separately” to keep the students out of harm’s way.
