The Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology or BUET has decided to follow its existing rules in admission tests.

The decision that runs counter to the rules of uniform entrance tests introduced by the University Grants Commission was made in a meeting of the university on Wednesday, said Prof Mizanur Rahman, a member of BUET Student Welfare and Academic Council.

“We have decided that we will follow our existing rules and guidance to hold the entry tests,” he told reporters on Thursday.  

Responding to a question on the UGC’s uniform admission test, he said: “There is no particular reason for the decision. We are not against the uniform entrance test. But we will follow our own rules for the tests.”

The commission on Feb 12 introduced a uniform entrance test for admission to all public universities in the country from the next academic session.
