Bangladesh Inter-Education Board has called a meeting to decide when and how the HSC and equivalent examinations, which have been postponed due to coronavirus pandemic, will be arranged.
Chairmen of all education boards of the country will attend the meeting to be held at 2:00 pm on September 24.
Dhaka Education Board Chairman Prof M Ziaul Haque, also the president of Bangladesh Inter-Education Board Coordination Sub-Committee, will preside over the meeting, said sources at the Dhaka board.
Apart from the HSC examination, the Inter-Education Board will also make decision on how to evaluate eighth grade students as the JSC and JDC examinations have been cancelled this year.
The HSC and equivalent examinations were scheduled to be held on April 1. However, it was postponed due to the pandemic.
Recently, Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni said students will be notified at least 15 days before the examination takes place.
All educational institutions in the country were closed in March due to Covid-19. The closure was later extended in several phases since then.
