The schedule of first year undergraduate entrance examination for the academic year 2023-24 has been changed in the cluster universities. Students can apply from 12:00 PM on February 12.00 to 11:59 PM on February 26.

As per the revised schedule, the admission test will be held on Saturday, April 27 (A Unit-Science), Friday, May 3 (B Unit-Humanities) and Friday, May 10 (C Unit-Commerce). The admission test of unit-A will be held from 12.00 noon to 1.00 pm and the admission test of the other two units will be held from 11.00 am to 12.00 noon.

This change has been brought to coincide with the date of local government elections. The decision was taken while holding a meeting online for the 4th time of the integrated admission committee of the cluster university on February 8. While the vice chancellors of 24 universities were connected online. 

 “Since the batch admission test is held on a large scale, it is appropriate to keep various factors in consideration. The admission test schedule that was announced earlier conflicts with the date set in the recently announced local government election schedule. Due to this, it has been decided to change the examination schedule so that the students and parents do not have to face any kind of suffering or irony. We are seeking the cooperation of all stakeholders of the country for the smooth completion of the GST admission test,” said Prof Anwar Hossain, Vice-chancellor, University of Science and Technology, Jashore, also convener of the clustered integrated admission committee, regarding the change in the admission test schedule.
