No more PEC, JSC exams from 2023

There will be no Primary Education Completion (PEC) and Junior School Certificate (JSC) examinations from 2023.

Education Minister Dipu Moni came up with the development at a press conference in Secretariat after presenting the National Curriculum Outline to Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Monday. 

Annual exams will also start from class four, she said, adding there will be no group division in classes nine and ten.

She said subject-based group divisions -- such as Humanitarian, Science and Commerce -- will be withdrawn and an integrated curriculum will be introduced for classes nine and ten. 

The group division will be applied from classes 11, she said. 

The Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) test results may come after averaging the results of finals exams of classes 11 and 12, the minister added.
