Rajshahi University(RU) is also not participating in the uniform admission test moderated by UGC after BUET, Chittagong University and Dhaka University denied joining in this system.

The decision was made at a meeting of the University's Academic Council on Monday afternoon. Vice-Chancellor of the University Prof Dr. M Abdus Sobhan confirmed that the Honors 1st-year admission test will be taken in RU as the previously held.

At a briefing after meeting, Vice-Chancellor Dr.  M Abdus Sobhan said, “A uniform admission test was to take place. Our Academic Council rejected it. The decision has been made on the basis of the views of the Council.”
Ashraful Islam Khan, General Secretary of the University Teachers’ Association, who was present at the academic council, said, “The way we take admission tests is 100 percent transparent and safe. Not all university infrastructures are same. So we want to test the safe admission first.”

Earlier, Dhaka University decided not to join this uniform admission test.

Earlier on Wednesday, BUET and Chittagong University on Thursday decided not to participate in UGC’s uniform admission test.
