Government decided to make the admission procedure based on H.S.C. and S.S.C. result. This made students agitated; they demand former system of admission test to remain in place. Government wants to stop the so called coaching business while many students want to sit for an admission test. Many coaching centers are backing the agitation. Angry students staged procession in front of Sahidminar and later in front of the press club Dhaka.
Meanwhile, a writ has been made in the high court challenging the new system of admission.
Similar protest and procession have also been held elsewhere in the country. Such as in Chittagong, Barisal, Sylhet, Dinajpur and Rajshahi
