The Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams for 2024 will be held in the first week of February.
It will be the first time the exams return to their traditional schedule after a four-year disruption caused by the pandemic.
The exams will cover all subjects as per the full syllabus and be graded using the full marking scheme, said a notification issued by the Inter-Education Board Coordination Committee yesterday.
Students will also be allocated the customary three hours to complete each exam, added the notification.
Traditionally, SSC exams were held in February, followed by the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exams in April. However, the pandemic forced education authorities to revise the schedule.
Although the SSC exams proceeded as planned in 2020, the HSC exams had to be postponed.
Over the next three years, the exams were conducted on an abridged syllabus, while the duration and marks were also reduced accordingly.
