SSC exams: Coaching centres to remain shut from Nov 8 to 25


Dhaka, Oct 27: All coaching centres across the country will remain shut from November 8 to 25 ahead of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent examinations, said Education Minister Dipu Moni on Wednesday.

SSC and equivalent examinations for the academic session 2020-21 will begin on November 14, Dipu Moni said at a press briefing at the secretariat.

This year the SSC and the HSC examinations could not be held as per schedules due to the Covid-19 pandemic and then the government decided to hold the examinations with shortened syllabuses.

The examinations will be held with short syllabuses on three elective subjects on a group basis.

According to the schedule, the SSC and its equivalent examinations will end on November 23.

Educational institutions across the country had remained closed since March last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the closure was extended several times.

Finally, the government reopened schools and colleges on September 13 following an improvement in the Covid-19 situation.

Last year’s HSC examinees were evaluated on the basis of their results of JSC and SSC exams, a decision which received a mixed reaction.
