The arrangement will take into consideration the epidemic situation and its impact on the exam, Weng Tiehui, vice minister of education, said at a press conference in response to a question whether the exam, which was originally scheduled for June, would be postponed.
Weng said the detailed plan and arrangement will be announced in due time, adding that all-out efforts will be made to ensure the safety and health of examinees and related personnel.
The country has postponed the start of the spring semester of primary and middle schools and encouraged students to study at home over health concerns.
During the special period, students have access to various classes online or via television. They are also required to learn about epidemic prevention and control and psychological health.
