Agrani Bank written examination cancelled Question leak alleged

An examination for appointing senior officers to Agrani Bank has been cancelled over allegations of question leaks. The bank authorities had decided to hold the test in two phases yesterday, considering the number of candidates. The afternoon session was cancelled for "unavoidable reasons," said Abu Taleb, Chairman of Dhaka University's Banking and Insurance Department, which was in charge of organizing the exam. A newspaper published a report on its website before the one-hour morning session began at 10am. The afternoon session scheduled for 3:30pm was called off after images of leaked questions appeared on the social media, reports

"We got some complaints about questions for the afternoon session being leaked. So we don't want to take a risk. We'll verify the allegations and schedule the test at a suitable time," said Taleb. As for a decision over the morning session, he said, "We haven't heard anything about that question  paper being leaked. But we'll still look into it." The exam had 203,000 candidates for its sessions, he said.
