The Junior School Certificate, also known as JSC, is a public examination taken by students in Bangladesh after successful completion of eight years of schooling. It is followed by Secondary School Certificate (SSC). Many students are doing better in this exam. Before this was only a vocational exam and not must be given exam. Since 2011 JSC is being taken in full Creative (locally Srijonshil) questions. It is said that JSC was also introduced so that the poor and destitute people of rural part of the country can do well in the exam; examinees are allowed to retake the exams with other regular examinees the following year if they fail.
