You will be pleased to know that government is making a plan to conduct single entrance exam for admission to all engineering colleges in India. This process will include all private and government institutions.
The planned single entrance exam for admission on different engineering colleges that is declared by the HRD minister Prakash Javadekar brainchild, might applicable from 2018.
The concept is still pending for clearance. It is sure that it will be on the series of NEET for admission into medical colleges. It is supposed by HRD ministry.
It is planned at bringing clearance to the admission process, together with checking the repetition in few private colleges of extracting a heavy tax charges from students.
“The plan is to make simple the process and more clear, standardized, and completely free of commercialization and corruption,” said by a government.
All we know that India has over 3,300 sanctioned engineering institutes allied to universities, with a yearly approved intake of more than 1.6 million candidates. But just approximately 50% of the seats are full.
The existing process of admission at the graduation phase is fully dependent on the overall performance in entrance exams performed by different agencies.
The CBSE performs the JEE-Main examination for center-funded colleges. Over 1.3 million candidates write this exam on the yearly basis.
The top-scorers from JEE-Main examination are qualified to write for the JEE-Advance examination for the admired IIT. In the latest system, candidates aspiring for the IITs would have to pass the national common admission test with high marks as well as take the JEE-Advanced examination.
Advantages of Single Entrance Exam for Engineering and Architecture Colleges
These aside, a total number of states perform their personal test. Some others grant entry as per on marks gained in 12th class.
More than a few private colleges have their own entrance exams. But “few of them that are self-financed, cost high admission fees or sell seats in the management name or NRI quota at a top”, said by a source.
Just a trickle of candidates crack the difficult examinations set for top institutes like the IITs, leaving lots of hopeful engineers to dash for private colleges, some of that are disreputable shops of teaching.
These institutes have turn into a magnet for all middle-class families in a nation where a degree of engineering is measured a ticket to a life of fat jobs or pay cheques in the US.
A few of the private institutes admit candidates without any basic aptitude and talent for engineering, disturbing entire quality, said by the source, and this is the main advantage of single entrance exam.
The offer for a single entrance examination 2018 is viewed as a try to modernize the dysfunctional teaching system. It was deliberated at a current official meeting from the HRD ministry and the AICTE, the watchdog for engineering institutes.
The board will issue examination regulations. Issues like the total number of times the exam would be performed in a year and the least requirement marks are yet to be applied.
According to a source the AICTE is making a plan to conduct sessions of online counseling for the purpose of engineering college’s admissions as per on all-India ranking of student gained in the entrance examination.
“States will be invited to attend the process of online counseling to fill the vacant seats in different engineering colleges under their dominion,” said by the source.
The states would be fully capable to recommend criteria of their admission, aside from the mark in the entrance examination. The score of JEE will, though, be the minimum criteria of eligibility, said by the source.
