Education Minister Dipu Moni has backed plans to implement combined entrance tests at universities, much like the admission process at medical colleges.

She also sought the support of major universities in this regard to reduce the troubles of students and their guardians.

Speaking to the media at her Secretariat office on Wednesday, Dipu Moni said, "I know that a few universities - major universities - will oppose the plan. But the combined entrance test will be important for students and guardians."

At least 135,1505 students across the country will sit for the HSC and equivalent exams this year.

The fight for admissions to universities will begin after the exam results are published in July.

According to the current rules, students who successfully complete their HSC are required to take entrance tests for admissions at different universities. The process is as stressful as it is expensive, reports bdnews24.com.
