In-person classes on all subjects at the secondary and higher secondary schools across the country will resume from March 15, Education Minister Dipu Moni said on Saturday.

The minister made the disclosure while addressing a programme arranged to inaugurate Lila Nag Bhaban of Sher-e-Bangla Girls College at Shere Bangla Balika Mahavidyalaya at Tikatuli in the capital.

Dipu Moni said that the number of examinations at the secondary and higher secondary schools will be reduced once the new curriculum is introduced from the next academic year.

The new curriculum will also help move away from the test-based assessment and students would be assessed on what they were taught in the classrooms, she added.

“There will be limited-scale exams at the end of each year, but final assessments will be made by adjusting the assessments throughout the year,” the education minister said.

Educational institutions had remained closed for almost two years due to Covid-19 pandemic.  On September 12 last year, in-person classes in the educational institutions began.

The classroom teaching started on a limited scale maintaining health guidelines, but in two phases, in-person classes in the educational institutions was stopped till February 21.

Classroom teaching began on February 22 on a limited scale at the secondary and higher secondary level while in-person classes at the primary level started on a limited scale on March 2.
