Education Minister Dipu Moni has said she hopes to hold Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exams from mid-November and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exams from the start of December.

"If everything goes well, I hope the SSC and HSC exams will be held from mid-November and the start of December respectively," she said.

The education minister said this while talking to reporters at Shilpokala Academy after inaugurating the 17-day long 'Bangabandhu-Bapu' Digital Exhibition at the academy's National Art Gallery on Saturday morning.

Dipu Moni said though they got information regarding students getting infected with Covid-19, they later found those false.

"The pandemic is still going on worldwide. Though the infection rate has come below the five per cent mark, we have to keep a sharp eye on the situation. Someone can get infected, may be at home, outside or in an educational institute. We are monitoring the situation to avert such a case," she said.

While answering a question, the minister said they don't want to bring the pre-primary level students to schools yet, adding, "Let them attend the online or television classes from their home. Let three weeks time pass, then we would make a decision regarding them," she said.

Presided over by Cultural Affairs Secretary Md Abul Monsur, the inaugural function was attended by State Minister for Cultural Affairs KM Khalid and Indian High Commissioner Vikram K Doraiswami as special guests.

Organized by the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, the exhibition will remain open for all from 11am to 8pm every day.
