RU also joins DU, BUET, CU against combined test


After BUET, DU and CU, Rajshahi University authorities have also decided to hold its entry test as per their previous system instead of adopting the integrated system of public universities as proposed by UGC.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the academic council on Monday at the Senate Building of the university presided over by RU Pro Vice Chancellor Professor Ananda Kumar Saha.

Confirming the decision, Professor Saha said the RU authorities will conduct its entry test for the students following its previous system.

Earlier, Dhaka University authorities also decided not to join the integrated admission test system.

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

On February 10, Dhaka University Central Student Union (DUCSU) suggested the university authorities 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.
