Kushtia, September 26 (Correspondent/OurVoice): THE ‘D’ unit intake test for the first-year honors’ courses under 2020-21 academic session of Theology and Islamic Studies faculty of Islamic University will be held on the campus in Kushtia on November 2.
The admission tests of the university’s other faculties, however, would be held under unified entry test process.
The decision was made at an emergency meeting of IU central admission test committee with its Vice-Chancellor Professor Shaikh Abdus Salam in the chair.
A press release, signed by IU Acting Registrar M Ataur Rahman, was issued in this regard on Sunday noon.
The admission test would be held separately as there were no such subjects in other public universities, IU Acting Registrar said.
The regular classes and examinations of all departments would remain closed during the admission test, he added.
The university authorities decided to take the intake test separately in a meeting held virtually on April 6.
The uniform admission tests of 20 public universities will be held from October 17 to 24 across the country.
On January 23, 2020, the University Grants Commission decided to introduce a uniform entry test for all public universities across the country from the academic year 2020-21, aiming at reducing the sufferings of the admission-seekers and their guardians.
