‘Due to pandemic, JSC and JDC exams not likely this year’
Education Minister Dipu Moni today said that there is no scope to hold Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations this year due to the Covid-19 situation.
This year, class eight students will have to take an annual examination at their respective schools, the minister said.
She made the comments while talking to reporters after attending a programme at Gono Bhaban Government High School, marking the birthday of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
With this announcement, it is clear that there will be no JSC and JDC exam this year, a top education ministry official said.
Last year, the government cancelled the JSC and JDC exams due to the pandemic.
