According to reports, the Islamic University Teachers’ Association (IUTA) has decided not to participate in the university’s 2021–22 joint entrance test.
At a news conference on Sunday, the university teachers’ union warned that if admissions were handled through a joint admission procedure, instructors would be excluded from all activities leading up to the impending intake examinations.
Because Islamic University is an independent institution, IUTA General Secretary Prof. M. Jahangir Hossain said in a written statement that the entrance exam at IU should be administered following the previous procedure.
The university has a theology and Islamic studies department that isn’t found at other public colleges in the country.
Taking this into consideration, IUTA has decided to stop participating in the joint entrance exam. They asked the university that the entrance test be administered under the prior procedure. They were granted their request.
IUTA President Professor Mizanur Rahman stated that his organization’s goal of making the admissions process easier for students and their parents was not achieved because of the cluster admissions method.
On the other hand, the admissions procedure caused a wide range of issues for those applying. Through the submission of a letter, we made our concerns known to the people at the university.
Professor Shaikh Abdus Salam, the IU’s vice-chancellor, said he agreed with the teachers’ requests.
The problem will be discussed at the Islamic university‘s next meeting, a few days away.
