Dhaka Residential Model College (also referred to as DRMC) (Bengali: ঢাকা রেসিডেনসিয়াল মডেল কলেজ), formerly known as Residential Model School,[2] is a public school in Mohammadpur, Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. The school offers education for students ranging from third grade to twelfth grade (approximately ages 7 to 18). With over 4,200 students, 1,000 of which reside in its six dormitories, DRMC is one of the largest residential schools in the country.[3]

Dhaka Residential Model College is noted for its academic performance and extracurricular activities, having produced many notable alumni including leaders in business, the military and state and national politics as well as senior government officers, scientists and engineers.[4][5] The Government of Bangladesh recognized the school for its strong performance in the Higher Secondary Certificate examination in 2008.[6] The institution was awarded 'Best College' in the 5th National Debate Festival 2010, the largest debate contest in the country organized by the National Debate Federation Bangladesh.[7] The school quiz team won the championship at the Inter School Quiz Contest 2006,[8] the nationwide school level quiz bowl hosted by Shishu Academy, the national academy for children in Bangladesh.[9]

The Government of Pakistan founded the school in 1960, when Bangladesh was a part of Pakistan. The school was the only one in Bangladesh under the direct control of the Ministry of Education, and it continues to enjoy this special status as of 2012.[1] DRMC is one of the most competitive schools in the country.[10] Admissions are based on an entrance examination, medical examination and an interview.[11]

History[edit]

Field marshal Ayub Khan, the founder of the college

Field marshal Ayub Khan, the second president of Pakistan was the founder of Dhaka Residential Model College.[12] Dhaka Residential Model College was established in 1960, in an area of about 60 acre beside Mirpur Road near Sher-e-Bangla Nagor in Dhaka by the then Central Government of Pakistan. Dhaka was the capital and the largest city of East Pakistan.[13] In 1962, the administration of DRMC was assumed by the Provincial Government of East Pakistan. In 1965, the government converted the institution into an autonomous body and its administration was relegated to a board of governors with the Chief Secretary of East Pakistan as its chairman. In 1967, the Government of Pakistan again took control of the school. At that time, a new board of governors was constituted with the Education Secretary of Pakistan as its Chairman.[1] DRMC was originally established by Field marshal Ayub Khan, the first military leader of Pakistan,[3] to provide education for army officers in East Pakistan. The school, and later the college, were modeled after public schools in the United Kingdom (according to the British Public Schools Act 1868), particularly Eton College. The house system was designed to resemble Eton's. After the independence of Bangladesh, a board of governors was appointed with the Education Secretary as its Chairman. Since its inception, the school has been funded through government grants and fees from students. The Board of Governors has been empowered to “frame rules as it deems necessary for the proper functioning of the school”.[1]

The school began with only one study session, known as the Morning shift which operates from 8:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. In March 1993, another session known as the Day shift was added, according to the education expansion policy of the government, to cope with the growing number of students.[2] The day shift session operates from 1:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. Measures were taken to build a gymnasium, park, swimming pool, auditorium, mosque, administrative building and residences for the principal, vice-principal and school staff.[11][14] The school opened eleventh and twelfth grades in 1967. In 1978, another dormitory named Lalon Shah House was built for students in grades 11–12. In 1999, it had about 600 students and 90 teachers, of which 20 were women.[2] In 2008, a four-storied house named Dr. Muhammad Shahidullah was built for students of the day shift. As of 2010, the number of non-resident students is substantially larger than that of resident students.[12]

Academics[edit]

Academic Building 2, used for academic purposes for students in grades third to eighth.

Dhaka Residential Model College offers both primary and secondary education[3] and emphasizes student discipline in all of their activities. It has laboratories for physics, chemistry, computers, biology, mathematics and geography and a library with more than 20,000 books, journals, newspapers and magazines. The academic year is divided into three terms.[15] In addition to a terminal exam, two class tests are held each term. Students have to sit for the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination at the end of the 10th grade, and the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) at the end of the 12th grade. At the completion of the 5th grade, students qualify for a primary scholarship program through another examination. Students at the end of the 8th grade have the option to sit for the junior scholarship examination. The school employs about 200 teaching staff and 80 non-teaching staff. The student-teacher ratio is 20:1. Teachers occasionally attend training programs organized by different government institutions. The school had more training workshops for its teachers than any other neighboring cluster of schools in 2000, under the English Language Teaching Improvement Project, which is funded by the British and Bangladeshi governments.[16]

The school operates on two different schedules. Students can opt for either of the schedules right before their enrollment. Each schedule includes seven periods and a 20-minute break for lunch. Students are provided with snacks by the school. The school is a closed campus; students are not allowed to leave school grounds during school hours.

Admission[edit]

Although Dhaka Residential Model College operates from the 3rd through the 12th grade, it only admits students into the 3rd, 9th and 11th grades. Consequently, the higher grades have fewer students than the lower grades, as a relatively large number of students transfer out. Admission in the 3rd and 9th grades are based on admission tests. The admission tests for DRMC competitiveare highly .[10] Students in these grades are admitted through written and viva voce tests for both the morning and day shifts. Students who pass the written test have to qualify in the viva exam. In addition to written and viva tests, candidates have to go through a medical examination as well. Admission to the 11th grade is determined by a student's grade point average (GPA) in the SSC examination. Many students with the highest grades in the SSC compete for admission as the school has limited enrollment in every grade.[17]

Curriculum[edit]

Dhaka Residential Model College's curriculum includes traditional primary, secondary and intermediate level academic subjects. Students of primary classes take academic core subjects including Bengali, English, mathematics, social science, general science, arts and crafts, religion and physical science. Students have to take agricultural science after completing their primary education. Students of the secondary level have to elect one of the three major programs: Arts and Humanities; Commerce; and Science. Students of the intermediate level (grades 11 and 12), have to elect one of the three major programs as well. Students have some compulsory subjects and some optional subjects in each of the programs.[11]

Academic performance[edit]

The SSC and HSC examinations are conducted by the Board of Secondary and Intermediate Education under the Ministry of Education. SSC is the diploma awarded for the completion of grades one to ten, which is equivalent to the O Levels in the UK. HSC is the high school diploma which is equivalent to the high school diploma in the United States that is given after the completion of Grade 12, and the A Levels in the UK. The SSC examination consists of eleven subjects totaling 1,100 marks, with each subject given 100 marks, including practical tests for science subjects. A minimum of 33 marks are required to pass each subject. Subjects will depend on which major program a student has elected to study. These major programs are Sciences; Arts and Humanities; and Commerce. Students have to elect one of these three programs just before enrollment in the 9th grade for SSC, and again in the 11th grade for HSC. The HSC examination consists of six subjects totaling 1,200 marks, with each subject providing 200 marks, including practical tests for science subjects. The minimum number of marks required to pass each subject is 66. Results of both the exams are published in the form of a GPA. The highest score is GPA-5. The Dhaka Education Board annually ranks schools and colleges from across the country in terms of GPA-5 scorers.[11][18]

DRMC has generally remained among the top ranked schools and colleges of Bangladesh since its inception.[19] The Ministry of Education awarded the institution in 2008 for brilliant performance in the HSC examination.[6] Dhaka Residential Model College's results from 2005 to 2009 for the Secondary School Certificate level examinations are as follows:

Dhaka Residential Model College is located on a 60-acre (24 ha) campus in a residential neighborhood. The campus is in northwest Dhaka at Mirpur Road, just opposite the official residence of the Prime Minister. With 20 buildings (including the newly built Dr.Muhammad Shahidullah House), six of which are dormitories, it is one of the largest residential colleges in the country.[3] The campus consists of dormitories, eight teachers' quarters, individual residences for the principal and vice-principal, staff quarters, a mosque, five basketball courts, several volleyball courts, a laundry shop, an auditorium, an administrative building, eight full-size football fields and an infirmary.

A monument has been built in front of Academic Building 1 to commemorate those killed during the Bengali Language Movement demonstrations of 1952. The Language Movement was a political effort in East Pakistan, advocating the recognition of the Bengali language as an official language of Pakistan. The campus also has a mini-zoo with deer and different species of birds called 'Bihangan Neer', (Bengali:বিহঙ্গ নীড়) which means birds' nest.[2]

Houses[edit]
