"We are ready to hold the exams. The Education Ministry will give us 15 days to make final preparation. There is no chance to sit more than two students on a bench," he said.
"We have not fixed the exam date. The ministry will fix it," he added.
Meanwhile, Dhaka Education Board Chairman Professor Md Ziaul Haque said candidates for this year's Junior School Certificate (JSC) and equivalent examinations will not be promoted to the next class without an evaluation.
The classes conducted at educational institutions until March 15, classes telecast on Sangsad Television, and those held online will be considered in the evaluation process, said the chairman, after the meeting.
He further said, if the coronavirus situation in the country becomes conducive for reopening educational institutions, students will be evaluated in person.
