Dhaka University authorities have postponed the results of ‘Ka’ unit admission test eight hours after the results were published.
“University authorities published the results of the ‘Ka’ unit admission test around 12:30 pm. But the results were postponed around 8:30 pm following the allegation of inconsistency over the result,” Science Faculty Dean Prof Tofail Ahmed told reporters at a briefing.

After publishing the results, students brought allegations that the authorities counted right answer of Mathematics subject in Ka unit exam as the wrong answer.
Later, the university authorities primarily postponed the results to verify the allegation, prof Tofail Ahmed said.
