If the proposal is approved, then this year’s primary scholarship based on the students’ PEC results would not be distributed.

The ministry has taken another plan to take the final exams in the schools based on short syllabus. The implementation of the plan depends on the coronavirus situation.

Meanwhile, the education ministry still could not clear its position over holding the JSC exams.
