The Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations will not be held centrally this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, students will be promoted to Class-IX through evaluation at their respective educational institutions.
The Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education issued directives in this regard on Monday.
A letter was sent to all schools on Tuesday asking them to evaluate students in their own system.
Meanwhile, the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE) is considering providing certificates to students without taking the Primary Education Completion (PEC) this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, there will be no grade or GPA mentioned in the certificates.
The government decided not to take the PEC and Ebtedayee examinations centrally this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
If it is not possible to open educational institutions by November, students who have registered for the PEC examination will be given certificates.
However, only ‘pass’ will be mentioned in the certificates instead of any grade or GPA, said DPE Director General Md Fashiullah.
He said certificates will be sent to respective schools of the students from where those will be distributed.
On March 16, the government closed all the educational institutions to contain the virus.
Later, the closure was extended in several phases. In the last phase, the government extended the closure of all educational institutions until October 3 next.
