An equivalent to GCE A Level in England and 3rd and 4th year of High Schools in the US, HSC is a public examination taken across Bangladesh, Pakistan and many states of India. HSC stands for Higher Secondary Certificate and the exam is held to complete High School Education.
In Bangladesh, High School Education is separated into SSC (Secondary School Certificate) and HSC (Higher Secondary Certificate). Although SSC-Level is commonly known as High School level and HSC is College Level, both of these levels are considered part of High School Education.
Students who previously passed the SSC Exam are allowed to enroll in the HSC level. HSC-Level Education spans two years. Within this period, students are reared based on three distinctive departments: Science, Commerce, and Humanities.
A student in Bangladesh has to complete 10 years of education to be promoted to HSC level. 10 years of education involves passing Junior School Level and Secondary School Level. HSC Exam is sometimes referred to as Intermediate Exam due to the usage of such term during the reign of the British Raj.
