The result of the examination is expected to be published on November 5, said a press release.

Earlier on October 12, protesting Buet students suspended their protest for the next two days, for the smooth completion of the university's entry test, considering the suffering of admission seekers and their guardians.

The Buet students called off their program temporarily on the sixth consecutive day of their demonstration, in protest of the murder of their fellow student Abrar Fahad.

The students also pledged to provide assistance to all the admission seekers and their guardians during the examination.

Abrar Fahad, a second year student of EEE department, was tortured to death allegedly by some leaders of Bangladesh Chhatra League's Buet unit. The murder took place inside the university's Sher-e-Bangla Hall in the early hours of October 7.
