The development came after Education Minister Dipu Moni on Thursday instructed three departments of the ministry to come up with proposals suggesting alternative methods to hold this year’s HSC and equivalent exams.

The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education and National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) have been tasked to explore the alternative ways.
