Executive Vice President,
By 2020, Indian will have 47 million people ready for the job market, provided they are trained properly. If we compare with other countries, this estimate is lesser by around 15 million. It can be seen from two perspectives. India will have those people without jobs or people with opportunities across the globe.
In India, the total enrolment has grown to 16 million in 2011 from 8 million in 2001. Simultaneously, the investment has also gone up and the number of institutions has also gone up. It means that we are getting more educated people in the system. If we give right input, we will get enough people taking up those opportunities across the globe. Now, we have e-Commerce coming in education. The examinations are also moving online. Initially, there were some question marks as some of the online exam systems did not perform well. People were skeptical. But today many prestigious exams are conducted online.
There is a myth that online examinations are not secure, but online exams are safer than paper and pencil test. In the traditional mode of examination question papers are vulnerable due to various touch points. It is always better to make use of technology for making examination secure and robust. We need to pick the right service provider who has been a specialist in testing and assessment and look for examination delivery rather than software delivery.
