DHAKA: A Supreme Court lawyer served a legal notice to Dhaka University authority seeking cancellation of the ‘Gha’ unit admission test result.
SC lawyer Yunus Ali Akand, whose daughter also took part in the Gha unit admission test, sent the notice to DU vice chancellor and Education secretary on Thursday (October 18).
The DU ‘Gha’ unit admission test was held on Oct 12. The authority failed to recognize several allegations of the question paper leaks during the examinations. Later police detained six people who were involved in question leakage and a DU committee was formed in this regard.
The results publication was stayed in the beginning but DU authority published results on October 16. Around 26 percent admission seekers have obtained pass marks which is the highest pass rate in this unit in the last five years.
On the same day, the authorities admitted that the question paper of “Gha” Unit admission test was leaked via “digital forgery”, but they published the result anyway.
Bangladesh General Students' Rights Protection Council demanded cancellation of ‘Gha’ unit admission test of Dhaka University.
Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) also demanded a retake of the examination.
