Govt panel moots one test for all engineering institutes
A committee appointed by the government has recommended a single entrance examination for all engineering institutes after Class 12, replacing the multiple tests given currently, including the IIT Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE).
Scores of this test, along with marks of the Class 12 Board exam, should be used to develop an index of scholastic level, the committee, headed by T Ramasami, secretary, Department of Science and Technology (DST), has recommended.
Public opinion will be built over the next few months, and the proposal will be taken forward after a consensus is reached on feasibility and methodology. The exercise is likely to be complete by September.
