In an attempt to prevent question paper leak, the government has decided to hold all public examinations without any break excepting public holidays.

The decision was taken on the basis of recommendations submitted by the fact finding team on June 29, said Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid.

He was talking to reporters at a press conference at his secretariat office today.

"We did not take the incidents of question paper leak easily. Appropriate measures will be taken on the basis of the reports submitted by the facts finding team," the minister said.

Terming the trend of question paper leak a black spot in the history, Nahid said necessary steps will be taken against those involved with the offence on the basis of recommendation given by the investigation team.

The education minister also asked the students to be prepared for examinations from their classroom studies.

Later, Nahid briefed the journalists about the report prepared by the probe committee in connection with the question paper leak in the last High Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations.

The education ministry formed the seven-member high-powered committee led by Additional Secretary Sohrab Hossain on April 10, a day after the Dhaka board postponed HSC English-II exam following reports of question leak.
