No decision yet over cancelling HSC exams

No decision has yet been taken over cancellation of this year’s Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) and its equivalent examinations considering the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, according to the Education Ministry.

The ministry’s Information Officer MA Khair on Friday said that there has not been any decision taken on cancelling the exams.

Earlier on Thursday (August 27), the Ministry of Education issued directives to make a proposal on what could be the alternative assessment method for HSC examination and passing for next class in various secondary level educational institutions if the coronavirus situation does not become normal.

Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni came up with instruction at an online meeting with senior officials of the Ministry of Education and heads of various departments and agencies under the ministry.
