High-school leavers will sit for admission tests in various public universities starting this Friday. In recent years, the universities came under fire because of the news of different kinds of unfair practices taking place in the tests, such as leakage of question papers, etc.
Last year, for example, question papers for a number of tests at Dhaka University and Jagannath University were leaked. If this sort of practices continues, qualified students will be deprived of their rightful place in universities. Unfortunately, the authorities seem to be doing little to stop the illicit practices.
