Minister of National Education Ziya Selçuk reminded that the holiday period of the schools was extended until April 30 with the new decision.
Emphasizing that they support students with distance education in this process, Selçuk said that they want to minimize the level of anxiety related to this exam for 8th grade students who will take the central exam under LGS this year.

Minister Selçuk said: “I have previously announced that LGS will not ask questions about subjects that are not face-to-face education. In the second term, you will have the opportunity to face-to-face education for about a month. However, in February, our students in that region could not go to schools in Elazığ and Malatya earthquakes. It was evaluated that the time required to compensate for the semester courses may lead to long delays in the LGS exam calendar. “

However, there is no change in the agenda for the exam at the moment. Let them follow the distance education lessons on the one hand with peace of mind and repeat the subjects they have seen so far. The central examination within the scope of LGS will be held only from the first semester curriculum. “
