The review will cost a student Tk 125.

All students have passed and over 161,000 achieved GPA-5 after the government used a stop-gap system of weighting the scores of the candidates' JSC and SSC exams to determine the HSC results following the cancelation of the exams due to the outbreak.

As many as 396 students have missed out on a full GPA-5 in HSC despite achieving the score in JSC, JDC and SSC exams due to the ‘subject mapping’ process applied in determining last year's results.

Nearly 1.4 million students registered for the exams in 2020.
