Vice-chancellors of different universities want to take online admission test. Their interest is due to corona infection. However, the issue has not been finalized yet.
The Vice-Chancellors are thinking of using the software developed under the leadership of Vice Chancellor Professor Munaj Ahmed Noor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Digital University for taking online admission test.
A policy decision has been taken in this regard at the meeting of the University Council, the organization of the Vice-Chancellors. However, the decision will be finalized in consultation with the Ministry of Education and the University Grants Commission (UGC).
First of all, it has been decided in principle that there will be a comprehensive university admission test. The integrated admission test will be online. A few universities will have this admission test in separate batches.
Using the software created, various short exams of the university will be taken first. Then the admission test can be taken using it. The admission test will be on the basis of Multiple Choice Question (MCQ). Those concerned will be given training in this regard before the admission test.
It has been decided that the students will be admitted through the admission test. Now this test will be finalized after further discussion whether it will be online or not. However, software developed by the Vice Chancellor of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Digital University has been presented regarding online exams. Many vice-chancellors have been ‘convinced’ of this.
It was decided in February last year that, without the four autonomous universities (Dhaka, Jahangirnagar, Rajshahi and Chittagong Universities) and the rest of the universities except Bangladesh University of Engineering BUET would be admitted in three batches.
However, the Vice Chancellor of the National University, Harun-ur-Rashid, told that the colleges under the National University will admit students only on the basis of SSC, HSC and equivalent examination results without any examination as before.
