The Kerala state government will file a reply to the central government that state will not be going to accept the common engineering entrance test proposed by the central government. Eight states are planning to conduct their own entrance exams for admissions.
Even, Tamil Nadu, Cheif Minister, Jayalalitha sent a letter to the Prime Minister Man Moham Singh, that the common entrance will effect the implementation of reservation policy in the state.
The union human resource department ministry recently asked state to accept the common examination conducted by the central government. It is up to the states to take a decision.
The national level common entrance test was implemented with an aim to open a single window for all engineering entrance test. But state higher education department evaluated the positive and negative of the common entrance test and they decided that their own entrance exam is far better than this and stands good.
The questions for the state entrance are prepared based on state syllabus but for the common entrance test prepared from the CBSE and ICSE syllabus. So, it will be tough for the state syllabus students.
