The government has given permission to qawmi madrasas for arranging examinations equivalent to degree and masters level on condition of following the health guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic.
However, academic activities of the madrasas will remain suspended.
Cabinet Secretary Khandker Anwarul Islam told journalists after cabinet meeting on Monday.
"The government has agreed to qawmi madrasas’ appeal on organising the exams. No decision was made on the reopening of madrasas,” he said.
However, qawmi madrasas will be allowed to arrange the exams at their suitable time but they must adhere to the health guidelines, the cabinet secretary added.
Qawmi madrasas, along with other educational institutions of the country, were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
