This year’s Primary Education Completion (PEC) and Ebtedayee examinations will begin from November 17 which will continue till November 24 across the country.

The National Steering Committee on Primary and Ebtedayee terminal examinations in a meeting presided over by M Zakir Hossain, State Minister for Primary and Mass Education, finalised the schedule on Thursday.

Urging all to help conduct the examinations properly, Zakir Hossain said: “Primary and Ebtedayee examinations are the biggest programmes under the ministry.”      

He said the examination system must be made foolproof for implementing the ruling Awami League’s 2018 election manifesto as well as to ensure quality education.

The state minister also said: “Question paper leak in Primary and Ebtedayee examinations could be checked if the entire process, from formulating question papers to publishing results, is done carefully and sincerely.”
