Although the education Board has instructed the school authorities not to charge extra fee from the secondary school certificate (SSC) examination candidates most of the schools in Sylhet city and other areas are doing so for filling up form defying the said instruction. As a result, it has created serious hardship to the guardians.
It is learnt that the Education Board fixed maximum Tk 1400 for filling up forms but many school are charging extra fees rating from Tk 5000 to Tk 7000 for this purpose. Besides the Board fees, the school managing committee are charging extra fees in the name of special coaching model test and other fees from the candidates.
It is also learnt that the Apex court on last week asked the education boards to stop charging extra fees from the SSC examinees in the name of filling up forms.
