The government is likely to reach decision on holding the withheld HSC and equivalent exams of this year on Wednesday.

The exams were scheduled to be held on April 1 but the tests were withheld due to Coronavirus pandemic.

Policymakers are debating whether to take the tests in the second week of November. However, no date was finalized till Tuesday.

Education Minister Dr. Dipu Moni said the students will be given four weeks to complete the preparation for the exams. But there will be options. There will also be plans on how to assess those who will not be able to take part in the tests for a logical reason.
