Dhaka University has undergone a structural change in its admission test format since the previous academic year, reducing the units from five to four. This shift has also led to a renaming of the examination from the Bachelor (Honours) First Year Admission Test to the Undergraduate Program Admission Exam. This adjustment aims to streamline the admission process while maintaining the rigorous standards of academic excellence at Dhaka University.
