All India Council for Technical (AICTE) has constituted a committee to explore the possibility of teaching /conducting professional education in regional language including engineering, medical and agriculture education. The terms of reference of the committee include, inter-alia, the use of regional language in entrance test like in All India Engineering Entrance Examination, All India Medical Examination and All India Agriculture Entrance Exam etc.
While the world is moving with English as a major language of communication, conducting entrance exam in the regional languages example Malayalam, Telugu, Oriya will have a mixed impact in the corporate world. However the proposal is at seed stage, the committee formed by AICTE needs to study the possibility and it’s impact.
What is your opinion? Should entrance exams be conducted in regional languages?
