However, the ministry has planned to conduct the examination in their respective schools this year on the basis of a shortened syllabus. The implementation of the plan also depends on the coronavirus situation.
The ministry is also preparing a set of plans on how to run the school in compliance with the health rules.
Although the primary and mass education ministry has clarified its position on the final examination of primary education, it is yet to make any decision on the Junior School Certificate (JSC) examination at the end of the eighth grade.
The secretary of the ministry’s secondary and higher education department, Mahbub Hossain, said no final decision has been taken yet on JSC and HSC examinations.
