Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today advised boys to be more attentive to their studies as girls are moving forward in education.
“Boys should not lag behind. They need to appear neck-and-neck with girls,” the premier said while receiving the results of this year’s Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and equivalent exams at her Gono Bhaban residence in Dhaka today, reports Bangla daily Prothom Alo.

PM Sheikh Hasina congratulated all the students who became successful in the HSC examinations, the Bangla daily said.

“Boys don’t want to study much as they stay outdoors and get into mischief… But after everything they must need to study,” the prime minister said.

She expressed her delight as girls did well in HSC.

Boy or girl, all need to get educated, she said adding that only education can build a poverty free country, she added.

Total 74.70 percent students passed this year’s Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and its equivalent examinations across the country which is 5.1 percent point higher than that of previous year.

Among them, 58,276 examinees obtained Grade Point Average (GPA)-5.

Around 10:30am, Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid handed over a copy of the results to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
