Top 20 Private University in Bangladesh
Many of you would say, Why 20 instead of 10?

When other websites have created a list of “Top 10 private universities in Bangladesh“.

Well…

Last year HSC candidates were 13, 51,505, and 47,286 achieved GPA 5. So I think It is very difficult for everyone to get admission in a good university. Especially in a top private university, it takes a lot of money to study a good subject, which not everyone can afford.

We’ve found that currently many new private universities are also offering good courses. So this list has been made taking everything into consideration.
