The ongoing holiday for educational institutions in the country has been extended till October 31 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The shutdown has since been extended several times, with the latest one issued on Thursday.
Earlier in March, the government ordered all the schools, colleges and universities across the country to close down soon after the first cases of Covid-19 in Bangladesh were reported on March 8.
The government has been running a distance-learning program through Sangsad Television for schools and colleges. Classes are taking place on Facebook and YouTube for primary and secondary-level students as well.
Many universities have already started online classes to keep up with the coursework.
