In a first, DU holds test in all div cities

In its first test in their history of 100 years, Dhaka University (DU) has conducted an admission test across the eight divisions, which included the capital yesterday.

DU officials said that it was done in order to ease the stress and costs of travel for examinations and also to reduce risks to health from the pandemic.

The one and a half-hour test for the "Ka" unit, designated for applicants to the science group for the undergraduate degree started at 11am in all centers.

On average, there were 45 students competing for each seat, according to sources.

The examinations were conducted in 79 centers in Dhaka.

The locations that were located outside Dhaka are Chittagong University, Rajshahi University, Khulna University, Bangladesh Agricultural University in Mymensingh, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology in Sylhet, Barishal University, and Begum Rokeya University in Rangpur.

At a press conference that was held on the DU campus at 11:15am, VC Prof Akhtaruzzaman stated, "We have been in touch with vice-chancellors of all the universities [that hosted the test]. They've told us everything went smoothly."

"We have received no news of any untoward incident. We were informed the students maintained health guidelines too," Du Proctor AKM Golam Rabbani told reporters about 1 pm in his office after the test was completed.

In addition, many expressed delight with the decision to decentralize the locations for the exams.

"Students from rural areas have benefited due to the decentralisation of exam cetnres," said Barishal University VC Dr Md Sadequl Arefin.

"There was less traffic on the road. We arrived at the venue much earlier than expected," said Mahfuza Rahman Engineer who is from Delhi's Mirpur region, who took her sister to a center on The DU campus.

Speaking to our Rangpur reporter Examiner Abdur Rahim, who came to Begum Rokeya University from Gaibandha and said, "If the exam was held in Dhaka, I would have had a much harder time with it. This is way more comfortable."

While visiting the DU campus in the morning our DU reporter saw an enormous number of students and guardians were gathered on campus prior to the start of the exam. While many were wearing masks, a sense of social isolation was not maintained at all times.

DU authorities also organized special Covid tests in the medical centre of the university as per the Dr Sarwar Jahan Muktafi, the chief medical officer at this medical center.

"Health safety was our top priority," declared Khulna University School of Fine Arts Dean Professor Monirul Islam.
