Govt to take ‘necessary steps’ if pandemic disrupts SSC, HSC exam plans
Bangladesh is currently grappling with an unrelenting pandemic and the education authorities will take necessary action if the situation does not improve in the coming months, according to Education Minister Dipu Moni.
“Coronavirus infections are on the decline. The positive rate had been above 30 percent but has come down to 22-23 percent range. The vaccination drive has also started again so we hope to be able to hold the SSC exams in mid-November and the HSC exams in December,” she told reporters on Thursday.
“However, if for some reason the situation does not improve, as we saw last time, then we will take the necessary steps.”
All educational institutions in the country have been closed since mid-March last year.
