The tests will be held from 11 am to 12.30 pm on the scheduled dates.

Following the practice of previous years, DU authority has decided to take the exams in divisional cities of the country to reduce the suffering of students and parents.

Asked about easing the conditions of GPA for the applicants, DU Pro VC ASM Maksud Kamal said “From our previous experiences we came to know that GPA does not necessarily prove the excellence of a student. There are lots of instances which show that low GPA achievers obtained better score than higher GPA achievers in the admission test exam.”
