Admission tests for public universities

Twenty eight VCs sat down together and fixed the probable dates for admission test for 2017-18 academic session in public universities which were published in the dailies and some of these dates are:

BUET     14/10/17

RUET     17/10/17

KUET     20/10/17

CUET    21/10/17

PUST    27/10/17

JUST                                 9-10/11/17

HSTU                               5-8/11/17

SUST                                18/11/17

JU                                    8-18/10/17

RU                                   22-26/10/17

CU                               22-30/10/17

KU                                    11/11/17

BUP                             24-25/11/17

IU                                 25-29/11/17

It is clear that some of the dates are overlapping and one has to move from one corner of the country to another to participate in the test. It is observed that one cannot cover a few university tests even if s/he travels by night coach. It is really a difficult exercise for students and their parents and entails huge financial expenses. 

I have a humble suggestion. The admission tests for BUET, CUET, KUET and RUET may be held on a single set of question paper and at the same time and similarly another single test may be arranged  for DU, JU, RU, CU, KU etc. 

We would like to request the honourable Prime Minister, Education minister and the authorities concerned for arranging a single test in the above manner for admission to the public universities and reduce the burden on  students as well as their guardians.
