Govt to cancel JSC, PSC exams

The government is likely to cancel Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Primary School Certificate (PSC) examinations in a bid to prevent the transmission of novel coronavirus or Covid-19.

Secretary to the Ministry of Primary and Mass Education Md Akram-Al-Hossain on Tuesday said that the decision to cancel the exams has not been finalized yet. 

A short summery is being sent to the prime minister for approval. Upon approval, PSC and JSC examinations will be canceled just for this year, he said. 

Sources at the ministry said the preliminary discussion on the cancelation was held last week between Secretary Akram-Al-Hossain and prime minister’s principal secretary.
