HSC examinees yesterday got different questions during the MCQ exams at a centre in the capital.
The questions were supposed to be the same as per the directive of the education board.
The incident happened at Mirza Abbas Mohila Degree College, which is the exam centre for students of four colleges, including Viqarunnisa Noon School and College and Notre Dame College.
Guardians of the candidates said teachers of the centre distributed different sets of question papers among the students.
Contacted, Lutfunessa, principal of Mirza Abbas Mohila Degree College, admitted that the incident happened during the MCQ exams.
“We received a text from the education board to open a bundle of particular set of question paper. As we did not have the set, we had to distribute different sets of question papers,” she said while explaining the reason for distributing different sets of question papers.
“We informed Tapan Kumar Sarker, controller of examinations at Dhaka Education Board, of the matter. He assured us that this will not create any problem as they have answer to all the questions,” she said.
The Daily Star could not contact Tapan.
