Online applications can be submitted till December 8, say officials 

Submission of online applications for admissions to public and private schools in Bangladesh will start on November 25 and end on December 8.

The Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) decided on the schedule at a meeting on Thursday.

DSHE Director Mohammad Belal Hossain told Dhaka Tribune that further details would be provided following another meeting on Sunday.

This time around, admissions to both government and non-government schools will be based on a lottery system, according to DSHE officials.

The lottery for state-owned schools will be held on December 15, while the one for private schools will be held on December 19.

Necessary formalities have to be completed using the state-owned phone operator Teletalk.

Students selected in the lottery process of government schools will have from December 18-23 to get themselves admitted. Students on the waiting list will get December 26-30 for admissions.

For private schools, students selected in the lottery can get themselves admitted from December 21-27, while the ones in the waiting list will get December 28-30 to get admitted.

Tk22 application fee

The government has lowered the price of admission forms in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, the admission policy will remain unchanged and a student can apply to five schools simultaneously.

For the upcoming session, the government has fixed Tk110 as charge for applying to five schools simultaneously, meaning that applying to each school will cost Tk22.

Earlier, the fee for applying to private schools and government schools was Tk200 and Tk170, respectively.

Last year, students from first to ninth grade were admitted on the basis of a lottery owing to the pandemic situation. 

Before that, only first grade students were admitted through the lottery system, while second- to eighth-graders had to participate in an exam for admission.

Admissions to the ninth grade were based on the results of either the Junior School Certificate (JSC) or the Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) exams.

School and college students in Bangladesh returned to class on September 12 after a prolonged pandemic-induced closure.

The government had shut educational institutions on March 17, 2020, after the country reported its first Covid-19 cases on March 8, later extending the closure several times.
