10 December 2016 “But do they have an alternative? Is there any space to express dissent? I tell you there isn’t,” the student leader said.“The university authority speaks of ‘student paying willingly'.” said the president of leftist body Bangladesh Chhatra Union's DU unit Tuhin Kanti Das.
The Deans Committee approves the additional fees after checking what the departments seek to achieve and on the recommendations of the Coordination and Development Committee, he said.
But different departments charge different development fees according to their objectives. And students are willing to give money for the good of their department. They do not want to miss out on facilities.”
Asked about the matter, Vice Chancellor AAMS Arefin Siddique told bdnews24.com: “Yes, if you just consider admission and tuition, it’s true that these are additional fees.
It has been found that the university has also charged students additional fees for evening courses.
A bdnews24.com investigation has found that students have been charged between Tk 2,300 and Tk 14,760 in the first year of the 2016-2017 Academic Session as development fees.
Student bodies, including the Leftist ones, describe the development fees as ‘illegal’ and say protests against them have not been able to reverse the university's decision.
University authorities justify it as necessary to meet the needs of the departments and say it had been imposed after the Deans Committee's cleared it. They claim the students pay it ‘willingly’.

Dhaka University students are having to pay 'development fees' in addition to tuition and other fees, which they describe as 'exorbitant.'

09 November 2016 Chittagong University will retake its C unit admission tests, under business faculty, on November 25 after allegations of digital plagiarism that marred the tests.

University’s Vice Chancellor Prof Iftekhar Uddin Chowdhury announced that the retake will be held on November 25 at a press briefing held at campus premises.

Aspirants who appeared at C3 (science group) unit test, claimed the answers to the questions were already given. It was seen that one of the letters next to an answer of each of the multiple choice question was slightly blurred.

The test was postponed after such allegations rose. No proper explanation was given. A probe body formed to investigate gave its report today, which prompted the decision for retake.

“It was not plagiarism, it was a technical mistake in printing,” VC Prof Chowdhury told the press conference.

University Registrar Prof Kamrul Huda endorsed the update

Students with disabilities will be given an additional 30 minutes to complete each exam. Assistance will be available for students with visual, mental or physical disabilities.

08 September 2016 The High Court today questioned the legality of the government’s holding Junior School Certificate (JSC) examination. The court issued a rule asking the government to explain in four weeks why its decision to hold the JSC examination should not be declared illegal.

The HC bench of Justice Quamrul Islam Siddique and Justice Razik-Al-Jalil came up with the rule after hearing a writ petition filed challenging the legality of the government’s decision to hold the JSC examination.

Supreme Court lawyer Eunus Ali Akond submitted the writ petition to the HC on July 27 saying the government is empowered under the Intermediate and Secondary Education Ordinance 1961 to hold only secondary and higher secondary certificate examinations.

The government is not allowed to hold JSC examination under this law, he said.

School teachers are engaged in coaching business due to the introduction of the JSC examination, he added.

The petitioner also prayed to the HC to cancel the government notice issued on June 15, 2010 on holding JSC examination.
