The Junior School Certificate (JSC) examinations will not be held this year. Eighth-grade students will be promoted to ninth-grade based on annual examinations and assignments.
The Inter-Education Board Coordination Sub-Committee has directed the school authorities in this regard.
This information was given in a circular signed by Professor Nehal Ahmed, chairman of Inter-Education Board Coordination Sub-Committee and chairman of Dhaka Education Board, on Tuesday.
“Considering the overall situation of COVID outbreak and classroom teaching and learning activities, it has been decided not to take the 2021 JSC exam,” the circular said.
