The digital lottery for admission of the students from class one to nine in government secondary schools will be held on January 12 at 3:00pm.

Education minister Dipu Moni will inaugurate the lottery, said a press release on Monday.

On December 30, 2020, the lottery for admission test was supposed to be held for the students from Class I to IX for the 2021 academic year for government secondary schools across the country.

But the lottery was postponed as a writ petition filed with the High Court division remained pending.

A section of students could not apply as 11 years age limit was compulsory for admission in Class VI.

In this context, the HC relaxed the age and gave them one week time to apply online.

The dropped admission seekers can now apply for admission till January 9, 2021.
