PEC exams likely in late Nov or early Dec: State Minister

State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Zakir Hossain said on Monday the Primary Education Completion (PEC) examination may be taken at the end of November or first week of December if the corona situation is favorable.

Zakir Hossain said, “Fifth graders will similarly come to classes every day while the students of class-I to class-IV will have to come to the educational institution once a week”.

He disclosed this information at a press conference at the ministry.

The government has decided to hold the classes of the students of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC), the Higher Secondary Certificates (HSC) and Class-five on regular basis.

“Classroom teaching will start from September 12 at primary, secondary and higher educational institutions. From that day, the current SSC and HSC candidates and the SSC and HSC candidates for 2022 will join classes every day of a week except holidays.

A high-powered meeting presided over by Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni held a meeting at the conference room of the Cabinet Division on Sunday.
