What is the total fee for the whole course?

Male Students (with no waiver): (Taka 6,000 x 167 credits) + (Taka 25,000 for LFE 201) + (Taka 7,000 for activity fees x 8 semesters) + (Taka 25,000 once in 4 years for non-refundable admission fee) = BDT 11,08,000 (Taka eleven lakhs eight thousand) only 

Female Students (with 10% discount): (Taka 5,400 x 167 Credits) + (Taka 25,000 for LFE 201) + (Taka 7,000 for activity fees x 8 semesters) + (Taka 25,000 once in 4 years for non-refundable admission fee) = BDT 10,07,800 (Taka ten lakhs seven thousand eight hundred) only
