No examinations will be held this year if primary schools remained close due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Primary and Mass Education Senior Secretary Akram-Al-Hossain on Sunday made the disclosure in a press conference at Secretariat marking International Literacy Day 2020.
He said: "If the schools can resume activities in October or November, we will consider evaluation of the students to promote them to the new grades."
Every institute will prepare a plan on how they will conduct their regular activities before reopening of the schools, Akram-Al-Hossain added.
State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Ministry Md Zakir Hossain also spoke at the event.
He said academic institutions will be reopened as soon as the pandemic situation improves. “However, we will not rush into reopening schools unless we can ensure safety to children.”
All educational institutions in the country were closed in March due to Covid-19. The closure was extended in several phases since then.
