Aspiring engineering students will have to take only one entrance test for admission in any Engineering College; single entrance test concept was proposed by T Ramasami Committee; earlier accepted by NITs & IITs. Recent to nod for the pan India single entrance test are the IIITs (Indian Institutes for Information Technology).
Single entrance test concept is likely to be adopted for the academic session 2013-2014; AIEEE, IITJEE, VITEEE and all other such entrance exams which overloaded aspiring engineering students will be put to rest forever. Over 10,00,000 students are expected to benefit from the proposed common engineering entrance test.
Common entrance test was also proposed for graduate and postgraduate medical courses in India by the medical education regulatory body MCI. But was opposed by states owing reasons related to syllabus and timing; AIIMS & JIPMER too refused to participate as they have said the quality of these colleges are far ahead compared to the rest of the medical colleges and since they are autonomous bodies they have refused to participate.
The scenario is different here first the approval has come from the finest engineering colleges (IITs, NITs and IIITs); there is no choice left for other engineering colleges, what do you think?
