Over 60 per cent of seats for the undergraduate courses at the Islamic University in Kushtia remained unfilled after two rounds of allotment for the 2021-22 academic session.

Not even 60 per cent of the candidates who secured admission in the university's first round of seat allocations, against 1,990 seats, got admitted.

Through the unified admission test, 664 students gained admission from the first and second merit lists, IU Academic Section Office officials said on Friday.

Among the 1, 326 seats, 683 seats remain vacant in the science faculty; 395 in arts, social science and law faculties altogether and 248 in the business administration faculty, IU academic section Director ATM Emdadul Alam told UNB.

The vacant seats would be fulfilled by enrolling students from the next rounds of allotment, he added.
