Exam venue measures announced

The Education Bureau today announced that schools providing examination venues for this year’s Diploma of Secondary Education Examination (DSE) should suspend face-to-face classes from April 26 to 30 and May 3.   Schools may decide whether to arrange online teaching for other classes based on their school-based circumstances.   Given the volatile situation of the COVID-19 epidemic, the bureau and the Examinations & Assessment Authority have been communicating closely with the Centre for Health Protection and the education sector to ensure the DSE can start on April 23 under safe circumstances.   The new measure aims to release more classrooms for exam venues and more teachers for assuming the invigilator role, as well as complement the need to step up precautionary measures against COVID-19.   The authority will issue a letter to inform schools of the above arrangements.
