The exams will be marked out of 100

The Dhaka University (DU) authorities on Monday decided to hold admission tests in eight divisional cities and brought changes to the mark distribution of the exams for the 2020-21 session.

According to the decision of the General Admission Committee meeting for first year admission tests, with Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman in chair, the tests will be marked out of 100 instead of the 200 in previous sessions, said a DU press release.

Of the total marks, 40 each will be from the MCQ and written examinations while 20 (10+10) marks will be from SSC and HSC results. The passing grade will be 40% of test marks (80).

Pro-VC (academic) Prof ASM Maksud Kamal said the deans concerned will fix the time and subject-wise question distribution prior to the tests. Application fees and the number of seats will be the same as in previous years.

He also said: “We will announce the exam date after publishing the HSC 2020 examination result.”

On October 20, the Deans’ committee decided to hold the exam out of a total 100 marks. It had proposed 20 marks to evaluate each aspirant’s Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) results. Intake tests’ mark distribution was proposed to be out of 80 (MCQs 30, Written 50).

In the last academic session (2019-20) the mark distribution was 75 for MCQs and 45 for the written exam. A further 80 marks were awarded for SSC (30) and HSC (50) results.

Prof Maksud on October 20 told this newspaper: “We are willing to set up the centres and hold the test after talking with the authorities of the universities in divisions across the country.”

Divisional universities will be used as exam centres so that students across the country can attend the intake exam without having to come to Dhaka.
