In-person classes were initially limited to once a week

School days for eighth and ninth graders have been increased from once to twice a week.

The Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education said in a notification that from September 20 students of class 8 will attend schools on Sundays and Thursdays while ninth graders will have in-person classes on Saturdays and Wednesday.

In-person classes for grades 6 and 7 will be held once a week-- on Tuesdays and Mondays-- respectively, according to previous instructions.

Students taking this year’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exams and 10th graders will continue with the six-day school week, it said.
