The Islamic University Teachers’ Association has refused to take the combined admission test under 2021-22 academic session of the university.
The teachers would not participate in any activities of the upcoming intake tests if the university administration took the admission under combined admission process, said the association at a press conference on Sunday.
In a written statement, IUTA general secretary Professor M Jahangir Hossain said that Islamic University should take the admission test under its previous system as it’s an autonomous university.
The university has a unique faculty, theology and Islamic studies faculty, and there were no such faculty in other public universities in the country.
Considering this IUTA decided not to take part in the combined admission test any more.
They requested the university authorities to take the entry test under its previous system.
IUTA president Professor M Mizanur Rahman said that the cluster admission process failed to meet its target of reducing hassles faced by the admission seekers and their guardians as well.
The admission process, however, created diverse problems for the admission seekers. ‘We informed the university authorities regarding the matter through submitting a written statement.
IU Vice-Chancellor Professor Shaikh Abdus Salam said he agrees to the teachers’ demands. The university authorities will discuss the issue at next meeting, scheduled in a few days.
