The Dhaka University (DU) authorities yesterday decided to hold a fresh admission test for ‘Ga’ unit (business studies faculty) on December 9.
Meanwhile, the successful admission seekers in the first-phase of the admission test staged demonstration on the campus protesting the decision of holding a fresh admission test.
Around 200 students and their guardians formed a human chain in front of Aparajeyo Bangla around 11:00am. They also brought out a procession on the campus.
The protesters said the university administration’s decision of holding a fresh admission test would put the academic future of many students into uncertainty.
They said many students did not attend the viva examinations in other public universities hoping that they would get the opportunity of getting admission in DU.
They fear that those who will not be able to come out successful in the fresh examination might miss the chance of getting enrolled in other public universities as the process of being enrolled in several other public universities have been finished.
The guardians in the human chain said they would go to court, if the university held a fresh admission test.
Following a wide range of criticism from different quarters over publishing the result of October 28 admission test for ‘Ga’ unit by counting a number of “incorrect answers” as correct, the university administration re-examined the answer sheets and published a fresh result.
The crisis, however, did not end up. To overcome the crisis, the university administration has finally decided to enrol first year honours student in the business studies faculty by holding a fresh admission test.
