DU admission test method changed

Question papers to have MCQ, written parts
Our Correspondent, DU

Dhaka University (DU) authorities have made changes in the admission test pattern this year by splitting the question paper into written and multipe-choice question (MCQ) formats. The admission-seekers will have to separately take a written test on short questions and MCQs.

Earlier, the MCQ test was the only way to assess the merit of students seeking admission to the university. The three deans of Dhaka University and several officials involved in the admission process said the new method had been discussed at the deans’ meeting on July 3.

The deans split the upcoming admission test question paper into short question and MCQs. They decided to keep 60 marks for MCQs and 40 for the written test.

The admission-seekers will be given 40 minutes for MCQs and 50 minutes for the written part.

The authorities have revised the value of the results of the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC). The value of results of the previous two public examinations has been raised 80 to 100 marks.

A formal declaration on the new pattern will be made soon after its approval by the university’s admission committee.

Prof. Shibli Rubayetul Islam, dean of the business faculty, said "You cannot assess the ‘actual merit’ of a student only through MCQs. The written test is a good option. That's why written tests will be taken along with MCQs."

University administration sources said Dhaka University has 84 departments, having a total of 7,630 seats. The

admission tests of the departments are held through five units. Online applications for next year’s admissions will open on August 5 and continue till August 27.

The last date of depositing the test fee is slated for August 28. The authorities have set Tk. 450 for a single form.

The admission test of the ‘Ga’ unit is scheduled to be held on September 13, the ‘Ka’ unit on September 20, the ‘Kha’ unit on September 21, ‘Gha’ unit examination will be on September 27, while ‘Cha’ unit’s test will be on September 14 (general knowledge) and on September 28 (drawing).
