Dipu Moni said the government was also considering making the evaluation of SSC and HSC examinees in an alternate method, instead of taking the examinations physically.
"We are monitoring the situation closely," she said.
The minister further said that although there were plans to reopen educational institutes by 13 June, it was postponed till 30 June amid growing Covid-19 infections in the border areas.
"Meanwhile online classes are ongoing. We are trying to find new ways (for evaluation)," she added.
