Dream! To be a student of University

A huge number of the students with brilliant results like GPA-5 in HSC examinations will not be able to get admission to the public universities and medical colleges because their number is much more than the number of seats in those institutions. Around 4.6 lakh students passed HSC examinations this year with the pass rate being 76.19 and 22,045 getting GPA-5. Pass percentage is more than 10 percent higher and GPA-5 achievers almost double compared to those last year.

A tough competition naturally happens for admission to all public universities. Academicians have suggested cancellation of admission tests, and introduction of a new system of admission on the basis of GPA (Grade Point Average) in SSC and HSC examinations to reduce the sufferings of admission seekers. Against this, the education ministry, University Grants Commission (UGC) and authorities of public universities at a meeting agreed to introduce group-wise admission test like that for admission to medical colleges.

UGC Chairman suggested introducing double shift or evening shift in public universities and renowned colleges to meet the present crisis. We have 14,750 seats in public universities, 17,330 in private universities, 1.65 lakh in National University (NU)- affiliated honours colleges and 2.34 lakh NU-affiliated degree colleges.Public universities including BUET, DU, Jahangirnagar University (JU), Rajshahi University (RU) Khulna University and Chittagong University (CU), public medical colleges, Dental colleges, Leather Technology College and Bangladesh Textile Technology College have only 20,000 seats. Of these, 885 seats are in BUET, around 4,500 in DU, around 1,350 in JU and 2,500 in public medical colleges

Meanwhile, taking advantage of this situation, coaching centres have mushroomed in the capital and other divisional headquarters with hollow promises of ensuring high scores in various admission tests. A large number students are already attending the coaching centres with consequent financial losses to their guardians.

What will be the solve regarding this crisis?
Your next generation is also on the deadline!
