Common Entrance Test For Science And Engg : Sibal

Engg & Science Common Entrance Test

Kapil Sibal, the Union HRD Minister has declared that very soon the national level common entrance test for science and engineering undergraduate (UG) courses will be introduced. The aim of launching national level common entrance test is to draw a national level merits list of students based on the class XII marks and the proposed common entrance test.

The institutes of India such as IIT's and NIT's have approved the common entrance test. However, a final meeting of ministers will be held before forwarding the proposal to Central Advisory Board of Education for its approval. The objective of introducing a common entrance test is to ease students from the pressure of writing several entrance exams.

The students of different states follow the curriculum of their state boards and in that case the idea of drawing a common merit list is a complete flop. So, in order to remove such doubts, the council has decided to meet Indian Statistical Institute for drawing a formula which will generalize all board marks.

Earlier the Medical Council of India (MCI) and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) had proposed a similar project of holding a Common National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) entrance test for Medical and Dental courses in India. But many status such as AP, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu had raised objections against it claiming syllabus differences between state board and proposed syllabus of NEET. Due to these objections, NEET has been deferred for a year and will now be held in 2013.

Its only the time which will tell how the different status will react to this proposal of conducting a national level common entrance test for science and engineering Undergraduate (UG) courses in India.
