The National University has decided not to postpone the ongoing exam for 4th-year honours students for the academic year 2022, despite the warning for the approaching Cyclone Remal.

The exam is scheduled to be held on Sunday (26 May) at 1:00pm, the same day that the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) predicted the cyclone would hit the country.

"The notice from the BMD says the cyclone might hit in the evening or after. Therefore, the current situation does not warrant halting the examination. Even if the cyclone hits later in the evening, the exams will be completed before then," the Director of the National University Public Relations Office Md Ataur Rahman told the media on Saturday (25 May).

Asked if it is risky to hold the exams given the possibility of heavy rain starting tonight, he said, "Most of our examination centres are located in the city. So, we do not foresee any problems at the moment.

"If the BMD issues any specific instructions, we will then take a decision accordingly," he added.
