DU finally decides not to join uniform admission test

Dhaka University (DU) authorities on Monday decided not to join the integrated admission test system of public universities which is likely to begin from the 2020 21 academic session.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the academic council presided over by DU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman.

Confirming the decision, Prof ASM Maksud Kamal said the DU authorities will conduct its entry test for the students as per its previous system.

Most members of the DU academic council opposed holding admission test under any unified admission test system and that's why we aren't joining it, he added.

On February 10, Dhaka University Central Student Union (Ducsu) suggested the Dhaka University not to join the combined admission test system.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh University of Engineering and technology (Buet) and Chittagong University (CU) also decided not to join the uniform admission test.

On January 23, the University Grants Commission (UGC) decided to introduce a uniform entry test in all public universities across the country from the academic year 2020 21, aiming to reduce the plight of the admission seekers and their guardians.
