Previously, the A/L examination and the Grade 5 Scholarship examination were held in August every year.
However, it has not been possible to conduct the examinations as scheduled due to the disruption of academic activities in schools caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, the second phase of the first school term will begin tomorrow (15).
Minister of Education Prof. G. L. said that grades 5, 11, and 13 of schools in the Western Province will reopen tomorrow.
