A writ petition has been filed with the High Court seeking stay order on O Level and A Level examinations to be held on October and November this year.

The petitioner also asked to formulate a policy for examination, curriculum and the overall management of English medium schools.

Supreme Court lawyer Advocate Moniruzzaman Lincon filed the writ petition on behalf of a student--Tamanna Tabassum who is an A Level examinee.

Secretary of Ministry of Education, secretary and additional secretary of Higher Education Division, and Director (operation and examination) of British Council were made respondents in the writ petition.

Earlier, on September 23, the Ministry of Education gave its approval, with some conditions, to hold O Level and A Level examinations from October.

On September 20, the British Council sent an application to the ministry asking for the examinations to be held under the UK boards, Cambridge International and Pearson Edexcel.

A Level exams under Cambridge International are scheduled to start on October 1. On the other hand, the exams under Pearson Edexcel are scheduled to begin on October 5.

Edexcel’s O Level exams are scheduled to start on November 2 while the exams under Cambridge International are scheduled to start on November 5.
