Jahangirnagar University yesterday decided that it too would not adopt the uniform admission test proposed by the University Grants Commission last December.
The decision was made at a meeting of the university's Academic Council yesterday afternoon, our JU correspondent reports quoting acting JU registrar Rahima Kaneez.
The university will enrol the students as per its own admission tests, she said.
The decision came a day after Dhaka University and Rajshahi University decided not to adopt the uniform admission test.
Earlier, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) and Chattogram University made similar decisions.
JU Pro-Vice Chancellor (admin) Prof Amir Hussain said, "Jahangirnagar University has its own heritage and uniqueness. The decision of not adopting the uniform admission test was made unanimously as it is "unclear" and "complex".
"Unclear since we do not have any proper guidelines to conduct the admission test ... ," he added.
On January 23, the UGC, the statutory apex body for higher education, took the decision to hold uniform admission test at a meeting with vice-chancellors of some public universities.
