The Jashore Education Board has postponed the Bangla Paper II exam's MCQ component that was scheduled to be held Saturday, as the question paper got leaked due to the wrong question papers being sent to three centres during the Bangla I exam on Thursday.
However, the written part of the Bangla second paper exam will be held as scheduled.
A notice signed by Jashore Education Board Chairman Prof Dr Md Ahsan Habib was published on Friday afternoon in this regard, which says that the date of the MCQ exam will be fixed later.
According to sources, the issue came to be noticed after exam officials distributed the question paper of Bangla second paper MCQ exam instead of Bangla first paper among 100 students at Narail’s Kalia Pari Shangkar Pilot Secondary Girls School center, and among 15 students at Baishona Kamshia Secondary School center on Thursday - the day of the paper I exam.

Exam officials have claimed that it wasn’t their mistake, rather it’s the officials of the BG Press in Dhaka who had committed the mistake by wrongly labeling the packages containing the questions.
Ariful Islam, Narail’s Kalia Upazila Nirbahi Officer (UNO), confirmed the matter.
