The cluster admission test at 20 universities, slated for June 19, have been postponed as deadly coronavirus infection and deaths are rising alarmingly across the country.
The decision was taken at a virtual meeting of the Vice-Chancellors of the 20 varsities on Friday.
The authorities at the same time extended the deadline of application submission till June 25.
Professor Imdadul Hoque, vice-chancellor of Jagannath University and co-convenor of a committee overseeing the exams in clusters, said the new schedule for the tests will be announced once the situation normalises.
This is the first time the tests for admission to 20 universities, including some of science and technology, will be held in clusters.
