The admission test for the academic session of 2019-20 of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet) was held on Monday, Agencies report.
The three-hour test began at 9am. A total of 12,161 candidates contested for 1,060 seats this year.
The applicants were not allowed to take mobile phones, smart watches or any other electronic devices in the examination halls except admit card, pen/pencil and calculators of approved models, said a press release.
During a visit to Buet campus, UNB correspondent saw an additional number of police personnel deployed there. The gurdians were seen waiting outside the examination centres.
Admission Test Committee Chief Pran Kanai Saha said 16,288 students applied for participating in the admission test.
