পাস মার্ক ৩৩ কেন

How much knowledge a person has acquired in a subject is determined through the annual examination. And passing the final exam is determined by the pass mark. He pass mark is 33 in 100 marks standard exam. But have you ever wondered why the number 33 is considered as the pass mark? Why is someone else’s number not caught? Today I will discuss in detail in this blog why the pass mark of the exam is 33.

This is the same rule everywhere in the case of passing the university academic examination from the very small class. You need to get minimum 33% marks to pass. However, this number cannot be considered as a good result at all. Even if you say somewhere, you have to hesitate. Moreover, this number is finally considered as passing.

And now its value has been further reduced to 28 Although there are conditions behind it As in that case the teacher adds 5 more marks in his own capacity, (28+5) equals 33 means the pass mark should be 33. Anything less than this will not count as a pass mark in any way.

The surprising thing is that 33 percent number is set as pass mark not only in Bangladesh. In India and Pakistan, the pass mark of students is also considered to be 33. Now the question is that despite the fact that the value of these 33 marks is so low, why is 33 considered as a pass mark? Let’s know the reason behind it today

Why pass mark 33?

After the Sepoy Mutiny in 1857, the British Raj decided to rule India directly instead of the East India Company. Under the British Raj, the first matric examination of the subcontinent was held in 1858. What will be the pass criteria for the officials while looking at the exam report? Could not come to a decision on this. Will the pass mark be equal to that of the British examinees or lower than that of the British?

They seek the advice of the British Lords to arrive at a decision. At that time, the pass mark in Britain was 65, i.e. if you get 65 out of 100, you are considered to have passed the exam. As can be said fairly good results in our country. At that time, the British Lords thought that the level of knowledge and intelligence of the people of the subcontinent was much lower than that of the British. At least half of the British could be. And from that thought they set the pass mark as 32.5 half of 65.

So from that idea, half of the pass mark of 65 in the matric examination is 32.5. And this policy was in operation for about four years. Later in 1862, decimal five was added to make 33 for counting convenience. And thus number 33 is considered as pass mark.

But the thing to think is that this subcontinent got rid of British rule long ago. However, even after all these years, the education system and the evaluation of the students are going on according to the rules taught by the English. Where the matter is quite clear, that the English, the British, introduced such standards to belittle this nation. Yet almost two hundred years later no one wonders why this rule still exists. And this is a sign of the legacy of British colonialism in the subcontinent.
