The course load reduction targets especially students of each educational stage. The reduction must ensure minimum knowledge of each subject and only advanced and duplicated content are subject to be trimmed off.
The Ministry of Education and Training requested that students not be evaluated on the content removed from teaching plan. The ministry has asked schools to avoid trimming subjects that develop learners' competencies.
Earlier, on March 13, the ministry decided to reschedule the end of 2019-2020 school year and national high school exam in 2020.
Accordingly, the end of the school year will be deferred to July 15, 2020 and the national high school exam will be held on August 8-11.
The ministry also requested local departments of Education and Training to review, test and recognize teaching results via online and televised lessons as schools remain shut to curb the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
