The Primary Education Completion (PEC) and Ebtedayee Education Completion (EEC) examinations will not be held this year. Students will be assessed through their own educational institutions and promoted to the next class, confirmed Alamgir Muhammad Mansurul Alam, director general (DG) of the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE), to the media.
“The DPE had sent a proposal to the Prime Minister to evaluate the students through annual examinations and promote them to the next class as the examinations were not held centrally,” DPE DG said. “The Prime Minister agreed on the matter.”
DPE DG added that as the COVID outbreak is currently under control, hopefully, the students will pass the next class by giving the annual examination in their respective schools.
If the COVID outbreak increases, the educational institution will give results through “alternative assessment” without taking the test, DPE DG also mentioned.
Meanwhile, KM Ruhul Amin, the director general (DG) of the Directorate of Madrasah Education (DME) said the same. “If the situation is favorable, the annual examination will be held in respective madrasahs instead of taking the Ebtedayee Education Completion (EEC) exams this year,” he said.
According to the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, the proposal sent to the Prime Minister mentioned that considering the coronavirus situation and classroom teaching and learning activities, the students can be promoted to the next class by evaluating through their own educational institutions instead of taking the annual examination.
