The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Chittagong was established in 1995. It is an autonomous and self-regulating body in the field of administration and management of secondary and higher secondary education in Bangladesh. The Board is functioning for organizing, supervising, controlling and developing secondary and higher education in its jurisdiction. It conducts Junior School Certificate (JSC), Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examination and award certificates.
Prior to 2010, there was, basically, no specific policy of education. As a result, education was without any define goal. We all know that after the formation of the present government, a massive initiative in all fields including education has been taken to build up a Digital Bangladesh. And to attain the target, education has been given top most priority. Providing the BISE the necessary facilities, the government is trying to deliver the services of admission, registration, receiving fees, filling up of forms for the examinations, publishing of results and so on through online system, replacing traditional means, to the door step of the students and institutions. In the last five years of the present government, we have seen a revolutionary change in classroom teaching introducing multi-media, conducting examinations and publishing results within the shortest possible time.
In the BISE, Chittagong, by creating a data-base regarding teachers, it has become possible to appoint examiners, moderators and the like based on qualifications and efficiency. At present, a Web-Portal has been functioning. More than one thousand and five hundred recognized schools and colleges have been brought under the supervision with the help of the Web-Portal.
We want to express our heartfelt felicitations to the government for taking such a praise-worthy endeavor and we firmly believe and hope that the success of this initiative will continue in future.
May Allah help us to translate our dreams into reality.
