Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Thursday told Parliament that the college admission process will begin soon.
She came up with the information in response to a question from Dhaka-10 MP Shafiul Islam in the House.
The education minister said the process of admission into Class-XI is getting delayed due to the global coronavirus pandemic. “However, the admission process will begin soon after taking decision as per the policy.”
She said the college admission policy for 2020-21 academic year has already been prepared amid the current situation.
Although the results of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) were published on May 31, the college admission process is yet to begin due to the coronavirus.
At the very beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in the country in early March, the government declared general holidays and shut all educational institutions in addition to other offices to curb the spread of the virus.
In June, the authorities restored regular activities on a limited scale but kept the educational institutions shut.
However, the government has decided to reopen hafizia madrasas across the country from July 12 on condition that recommended health guidelines will be maintained.
The decision to reopen hafizia madrasas came just a few days ahead of Eid-ul-Azha.
