Dhaka: The government has decided to scrap Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) in Primary Education Completion (PEC) Examination from this year.

Responding to another question, he said three or four months is no matter.
‘The PEC examination will be held in November. Any revolution can be possible in one or two months. So, there will be no problem.’

ongoing Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations.
