Over 2.4 million students will take the Junior School Certificate (JSC) and Junior Dakhil Certificate (JDC) examinations this year.
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid told a media briefing on Sunday that students from 28,761 institutions will take the exams from Nov 1 to 17.
"All necessary steps have been taken for holding the exams as well as to prevent question leak."
The number of female students has exceeded the number of males this year while the number of total examinees has risen by 86,842, said Nahid.
As many as 681 students will take part in JSC from eight centres overseas, he added.
Students with disability would get 20 extra minutes to complete exams with the help of their scribes.
“Autistic, children with down syndrome and cerebral palsy will get an extra 30 minutes and can be facilitated by their teachers and parents if necessary,” he said.
