The online admission process for the Class-XI for the session 2016-17 would begin on May 26 like the previous year and the classes would begin on July 10, education ministry said yesterday. This year the students would be able to select 10 colleges of his or her choice, which was restricted to five last year.
However, the admission fees would remain same as last year fees.
Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid said this to the reporters after a meeting with the officials at the Secretariat yesterday to finalise the admission policy.
“The students will be able to apply for online admission along with mobile SMS from May 26 and the last date of application is on June 9,” he said.
The first merit list would be published on June 16 and students would be able to enroll from June 18 to 30, the minister said.
Admission on payment of late fees will begin on July 10 and close on July 20.
Nahid said a 0.5 percent quota has been kept for children of expatriate Bangladeshis and students from the Bangladesh Krira Shikkha Protishtan (BKSP).
The results of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exams would be published on May 11.
Like in previous years, admissions will be on the basis of Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and equivalent exam results, according to rules laid down by the education ministry.
The minister said all the students would get the opportunity to take admission in the colleges on condition of vacant seats.
The ministry started the online admission for the colleges across the country last year but it faced tremendous anomalies in the system, resulting in massive sufferings of students and guardians.
Education secretary Sohrab Hossain said, “Last year we had a problem with the online admission. We have talked to the experts of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology who are assisting us and they assured us that there would be no such problem.”
However, students and guardians said they have an apprehension of anomalies in the online admission but prays for not to face previous problems.
