The results of 'Gha' unit admission test for the first-year honours courses of Dhaka University (DU) under 2018-2019 academic session will be published this afternoon.

DU Vice Chancellor Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman will announce the results from the central admission office (room no-214) of Registrar Building at 3:30pm, according to a press release issued today.

Yesterday, the DU authorities postponed the "Gha" unit admission test results following allegations of question paper leak. The result was scheduled to be published today.

Earlier in the day (Monday), the authorities issued a press release saying that the exam results would be published today. But hours later, another press release was issued stating: “The previous press release was sent because of wrong information given by the assignment officer of the vice chancellor office....”

The admission tests for "Gha" unit were held Friday amid allegations of question paper leak. The university authorities formed a three-member probe body the next day and asked it to submit a report within 48 hours.

Law enforcers have found evidence that hand-written question papers of DU “Gha” unit admission test were leaked 43 minutes prior to the exam and circulated by two admission information centres in Bogura.

Six people, including an admission seeker and his father, were arrested on Saturday in connection with the incident. Each of them were taken on a two-day remand on Sunday.

On Saturday, DU's Chief Security Officer SM Kamrul Ahsan filed a case with Shahbagh Police Station, accusing the six and some others, under sections 22 and 33 of the Digital Security Act, and the Public Examination Act. The case statement said that the questions were leaked through digital devices prior to the exam.

Last year, the university authorities published the results of "Gha" unit admission test within the shortest period of time amid protest and outcry over allegations of the exam paper being leaked.
