Demand for postponement of written examination of 18th teacher registration


The 18th teacher registration written exam is scheduled to be held on July 12 and 13. This exam will be held in 8 divisional cities of the country. However, due to heavy rainfall and flood situation in different districts of the country, the job aspirants have demanded to postpone the examination.

They say that heavy rains and landslides have flooded various areas of Sylhet, Sunamganj and Moulvibazar. More than 1.5 million people have been trapped in water. Again, the north and north-eastern parts of the country and the low-lying areas of the north-west are also getting flooded. Flood situation has occurred in lower areas of Kurigram, Gaibandha, Bogra, Sirajganj, Jamalpur, Tangail.

Mozammel Hossain of Sariakandi Upazila of Bogra has passed the preliminary examination for 18th teacher registration. His dream is to become a teacher. The flood situation is now a big obstacle in fulfilling that dream.

Mozammel Hossain told Jago News that the flood situation in Sariakandi is very bad. We spend our days in fear of life. The water is rising every day. The transportation system is broken. Taking exams in this situation is nothing but a luxury to think about. I strongly demand to postpone the exam even for a few days.
