The education minister, Nurul Islam Nahid, said that there would be no shortage of seats but the students would face a tough competition for enrolment on renowned institutions.
'There will be no shortage of seat in colleges for students who passed the SSC this year. More than one lakh seats will rather remain vacant in colleges across the country. But this is also reality that all students will not get a place in renowned colleges,' he said.
