Islamic University (IU) academic council has decided not to participate in the admission test of the General, Science, and Technology (GST) universities for the academic year 2022–23.
The decision was reached during the 125th Academic Council (Emergency) meeting held at the Birshrestha Hamidur Rahman Auditorium of the university on Sunday.
University sources said that at least 160 members were present at the academic council meeting out of 250 members, and all members unanimously decided to withdraw from the GST admission and conduct their own admission process.
IU Teachers’ Association, GS, Prof. Dr. Tapan Kumar, said it was unanimously decided in the academic council meeting that Islamic University will not be in the group. We have requested the university administration to complete the admission process for the academic year 2022-23 by June 30 and start classes from July 1.
