No DU ‘Gha’ unit entrance exams from now on
The Dhaka University authorities yesterday decided not to hold any first-year honours admission tests for "Gha" or "D" unit, under the social science faculty, from the 2021-2022 academic year.
The university's deans' sub-committee, at a meeting of DU's general admission committee, was assigned the responsibility to form a policy to admit students to Gha unit seats via admission tests for Ka, Kha, Ga (A, B, C) units and Cha unit.
DU Vice-Chancellor Prof M Akhtaruzzaman chaired the meeting.
The vice-chancellor told The Daily Star that all students can get admissions to this unit by taking the entry tests of their respective units (Ka, Kha, Ga and Cha).
"We have prior experience as the university has admitted students following this system earlier," he said.
The meeting also recommended reducing 1,040 seats from the next academic session.
According to DU public relations office, this agenda will be finalised by the university's Academic Council's meeting immediately.
