Professor Harun-or-Rashid, the college inspector at the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Dhaka, said, “Students will have to apply for getting enrolled to class XI following health guidelines. Students and guardians were made aware of the online admission process in a circular issued earlier.”
