JSC exams will not behold: Education Minister


Staff Reporter: The Junior School Certificate (JSC) examination is not being conducted like last two years. Education Minister Dipu Moni has said that there is no opportunity to take this test in the future as the new curriculum is going to be implemented.

“Since we are going to roll out from next year, although class eight will not go, next year will go, I think – there is no chance of JSC exams this year, there will be no exams,” he told a press conference at the secretariat on Sunday.

The government is going to start implementing the new curricula step by step in 2023. The course will start in the first and second classes of primary and the sixth and seventh classes of secondary.

This curriculum will start in 2024 in the 3rd, 4th, 8th, and 9th classes and in 2025 in the 5th and 10th classes. The new curriculum will be fully implemented within this period.

The Ministry of Education has announced plans to introduce a ‘joyous’ education system by reducing the pressure of examinations in the new curriculum.

The Education Minister said, “Eighth grade is not going to our new curriculum next year, it is going to be next year. This test will not be available in 2024. So there is no reason to take 23.

“Then we are not taking JSC from now on. It will be evaluated at the institution level and even if the institution evaluates, we have recognized. ”

The government started taking the test in 2010 at the end of the eighth grade, increasing the pressure on students to take the test, which was criticized.

Due to the coronavirus epidemic, students have been evaluated without taking this test for the last two years.

Dipu Moni said that the assessment will be done in the same way this year as well. But there is a point in the certificate, we will give the certificate on the basis of that assessment at the school level. ”
