If you overstay your student visa, marry in this country the UKBA will ask that you return to your home country to submit your spouses visa application.They will reject the application as soon as they realise you are an overstayer.
Persons who have overstayed there visas and wish to make in-country applications for spouses visas are only those in exceptional circumstances. This would be something like the person is required to stay in country in order to tend day to day care to their ill spouse, or perhaps because day to day care of the children is required.
In pretty much all other cases they will reject the application, keep the fee and ask that you return.
The overstay, in and of itself, is not grounds for the UKBA to reject an application made out of country however and if the application is otherwise eligible then they will not be able to refuse on this basis alone. There is nothing stopping a person going to a solicitor before leaving the country in order to ask that they prepare the out of country application though.

My course finishes in April but my student visa expires in Aug. If i stop attending my course and the college removes my name from the register, but before my visa expires my husband registers the marriage and applies for my extended stay, will the goverment allow me to stay or tell me to go back to bangladesh and do all the necessary paperwork and then come back?
I would continue to observe your responsibilities under the student visa (ie. attend college). If your student visa is valid until AUgust then you can marry and make an in country application for a spouses visa at any time until the expiry of your student visa.
The moment your student visa has expired though they will ask that you return home to make the application from there.
Hope this clarifies.
Yes, they might do that. You college as your sponsor is obligated to tell the UKBA if you stop attending because your visa is only granted on the basis that your wish to be a genuine student.
You should explain to your husband that if the college does this then your visa will be curtailed and they could deport you. Get your spouses visa arranged first, then you may stop going to college. If you do not do it in that order you are putting your right to legally remain in this country in jeopardy.
You are on a student visa. If this expires in August then you will have to return home unless you get married to your boyfriend (a UK citizen) and then submit a spouses visa before your student visa expires in August.
If you do not attend college your college may inform the UKBA that you are not attending and therefore not fulfilling your responsibilities under the student visa. The UKBA may then curtail (ie. revoke) your visa and attempt to deport you.
Therefore, you should continue to fulfill your student visa responsibilities until you have applied for and obtained your spouses visa.
