Education Minister Dr Dipu Moni on Sunday said all the coaching centres would remain closed from October 25 till November 15 due to the Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations.
The minister said this while talking to reporters after the national monitoring and law and order committee's meeting on JSC/JDC examinations at the International Mother Language Institute.
This year's JSC and JDC exams will be held from November 2 to 13.
"The authorities have been instructed to keep the coaching centres shut for smooth holding of the examinations. We are strict in this regard," Dipu Moni said.
"It is extremely unethical that some teachers teach in the coaching centres instead of the classrooms," she added.
