epidemic situation allows, grades 5, 9 and 12 will be the next
to return to schools from April 26. The 12-graders who finish
high school this year, will be in in-person classes until the
end on May 14.
The Ministry aims to allow up to 40 per cent of studebts in
grades 5 through 12 to go back to school.
Practical training, studying-while-working education programmes
and individual educational activities and exams will also be
allowed after April 12. LN
