DU holds 'Ga' unit admission test

Dhaka University (DU) on Friday held the admission test of the 'Ga' unit under the Faculty of Business Studies for the 2021-22 academic session.

The test was held in eight divisions across the country. The test began at 11am for a duration of one-and-a-half hours.

"This year, we decided to hold the exams in all eight divisions of the country to minimise the sufferings of the candidates and their parents," said DU vice-chancellor Prof Akhtaruzzaman.

"Business faculty dean Prof Abdul Moin Chowdhury coordinating the unit exam and vice-chancellors of the respective varsities helped us in this regard. I was told that the exams were held smoothly," he said.

 

Parents were happy with the arrangements

Labiba Fatema, a housewife from the Jatrabari area who brought her daughter to an examination centre in Dhaka, said, "We are happy as the admission tests were held simultaneously in all districts. Friday being a weekend, there was less traffic on the road."

This year, 30,704 candidates are fighting for 930 seats of the 'Ga' unit.

Besides DU, the admission test was held at the University of Chittagong, the University of Rajshahi, Khulna University, University of Barishal, Bangladesh Agricultural University of Mymensingh, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology in Sylhet and Begum Rokeya University of Rangpur.
