Bangladesh government has trained two thousand head examiners for equal marks in public examinations, said Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Thursday.
The step has been taken so that all examinees get equal marks of the same question examined by different examiners, he said.
He spoke this at Government Laboratory High School in Dhanmondi while he was overseeing the students sitting for their first test of the Secondary School Certificate examinations.
The examination started around 10:00 am in 3,236 centers all over the country.
The minister said there is no possibility of question paper leak as the govt has taken rigid steps in this regard.
