UGC scraps combined admission test,  announces cluster system

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has decided to hold examinations to admit students to public universities under a cluster system as five top universities did not adopt previously proposed combined admission test.

UGC Chairman Kazi Shahidullah announced the decision after a meeting with the vice-chancellors of 34 public universities on Wednesday, reports bdnews24.com.

As per the fresh decision, the entry tests will be held in four clusters from next academic session.

The clusters will be – agriculture, science and technology, engineering and general. Under the general cluster, there will be three streams - science, humanities and business studies.

The candidates will sit the tests after making online application, the UGC chairman said. The test centres will be near their areas.
