The government has deferred the Junior School Certificate or JSC and Junior Dakhil Certificate or JDC exams and the National University tests of Saturday or Nov 9 due to Cyclone Bulbul, a severe storm which is nearing the coasts.

The JSC tests of Saturday will be held on Tuesday or Nov 12, the education ministry’s spokesman Abul Khair told bdnews24.com on Friday night.

The postponed JDC exams will be held on Thursday or Nov 14.

The National University’s Exam Controller Md Badruzzaman said new dates for the tests scheduled for Saturday would be announced later.

The eighth grade completion tests have been being taken since Nov 2.

Around 2.65 million students have registered for the tests this year.

The eight general education boards and the madrasa board had been scheduled to hold the JSC and JDC math tests on Saturday.

But the cyclone is likely to hit the Bangladesh coasts on Saturday evening.

Different regions of the country, including Dhaka, have been experiencing rainfall under the influence of the storm since Friday morning.
