No JSC, JDC exams this year, says Edu Minister


Dhaka, Sept 28: The government has decided against holding this year’s Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations, said Education Minister Dipu Moni on Tuesday.

“No JSC, JDC examinations will be held this year and the students will be upgraded to the next class through temporary tests,” she said while speaking at a programme on the 75th birthday of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina held at Dhaka Mohila Polytechnic Institute in city’s Agargaon.

Referring to SSC and HSC examinations, the minister said “We have taken all-out preparation and I hope the examinations will be held in time as per the schedule.”

She advised the students to devote to gaining knowledge instead of running after GPA-5.

She said the students should prepare themselves for the fourth industrial revolution that has been initiated under the leadership of Sheikh Hasina.

“Our prime minister has been working for the development of education,” she said adding that a nationwide tree plantation programme will be held across the country with students’s participation to commemorate PM’s birthday.

Dipu Moni said the government has decided to introduce new curricula in schools and colleges from 2023.

She said the piloting of the revised curricular will start in 2022 and it will be fully introduced by 2025.
