Coronavirus cases and deaths are increasing again in the country. However, in this situation, there is no plan to close the educational institution, said Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni.
Dr. Dipu Moni said coronavirus situation in the country has deteriorated and vaccination activities are ongoing. Many people have been inoculated with booster doses. But coronavirus cases are on the rise in the country again. However, there is no plan to close the educational institution even if the corona increases.
The minister told reporters at the secretariat on Wednesday afternoon.
Regarding the schedule of SSC and HSC examinations, the Education Minister said that considering the overall flood situation in the country, it is not possible to finalize the schedule of SSC and HSC now.
She said the examination schedule would be finalized two weeks after the books arrive.
The education minister said that floods had severely damaged many areas. Water has not yet come down from many areas. Many families have become homeless and many students' books have been washed way by the flood. Books must reach their hands.
With all these considerations, it is not possible to finalize the schedule of SSC and HSC examinations now.
It may be mentioned that SSC and its equivalent examinations were scheduled to start on June 19. However, the test was postponed due to severe floods in several areas including Sylhet and Sunamganj. As a result, HSC examination was also postponed.
