Can India Have Single Entrance For Engg?
During the discussion of IIT Entrance Tests being reviewed , the founder of the Prestigious Super 30 coaching institute, Anand Kumar, has suggested a single entrance exam for all engineering colleges in the country. He in-fact said that “A single engineering exam should be held which should be objective questions based on 11th and 12th curriculum. The exam should be held thrice and the score of the best two should be calculated”.

On a meeting with Kumar met HRD Minister Kapil Sibal held on the reforms needed for IIT-JEE, which is held annually to select candidates for admission to 15 IIT's and two other institutions. He believes the proposed pattern of including weightage of 12th board exam results and an entrance exam on a new pattern will be exploited by coaching institutes.

After a meeting with the MHRD he said “Even before the new pattern could be announced, the coaching institutes have started new-pattern programmes to make good money from the innocent students”. “The proposed introduction of aptitude test and weightage to plus two board results cannot do away with the dependence on coaching. Instead, the coaching institutes are trying to cash in on this new trend to their advantage”, he added. Kumar suggests a single entrance exam for engineering based on the lines of single suggested for medical colleges.

The students would now be under more pressure trying to deal with the challenges on three fronts-preparing for plus two, the subject test for IIT-JEE and the new aptitude test and the coaching institutes will make more money, he explained.
