Tapan Kumar Sarker , Controller of Inter-Education Board Coordination Sub-committee and Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka said, the percentage of total HSC results is lower this year than the previous years.

 "The students can see their marks attained in the answer sheets. Most of the students who got 58, 59, 68, 69, 78, and 79, applied for reevaluation. They think that it could be mistake in counting of their marks," Tapan Kumar Sarker said.
