However, the Dhaka Board of Education has postponed the permission to collect admission applications on Wednesday.
Dhaka Education Board College Inspector Professor Dr. Harun Ur Rashid confirmed the matter to Daily Bangladesh.
He said the four colleges were allowed to complete the admission process in compliance with the hygiene rules during the COVID-19 situation in the country. “Later, it has been postponed on Wednesday, considering the situation.”
“We are not starting student admissions anywhere in this risk of coronavirus infection,” he added, saying that the decision regarding admission will be announced soon.
About this, Md. Ziaul Haque, chairman of the Dhaka Board of Education, said students can be admitted, but it will increase the risk of infection of COVID-19 disease. That is why we are taking some time.
Thoughts are afoot on how to complete the admission process as soon as possible by reducing the risk. Everyone will be notified soon, he added.
Meanwhile, Notre Dame College, Holy Cross College, St. Joseph High School and College, and St. Gregory’s High School and College published notifications for student admissions in their own way on Tuesday (June 2).
However, the Notre Dame College authorities withdrew the advertisement after the board postponed the application on Wednesday.
It is worth be mentioned that the results of SSC and equivalent examinations were published on May 31 where the average pass rate was 82.87 percent.
