The Education Ministry decided to postpone Brazil’s National University Entrance Exam (Enem) as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, after mounting pressure led the Senate to push forward a bill postponing the exam. Now, both the in-person and online versions of the test will take place within 30 to 60 days after the original dates — November 1 and 8 for the former, and November 22 and 29 for the latter. The ministry says it will hold an online poll to select the best date for the exams; applications remain open until May 22.
