MHRD Plans to Make a Single Door Entry to Engineering and Technical Colleges

The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has been planning  to replace all examinations for admission to engineering and technical colleges in the country, including the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the National Institutes of Technology (NITs), with a single examination — the Indian science engineering eligibility test (ISEET)

If things go as planned by the MHRD, around this time next year, all engineering college aspirants in the country will be at daggers drawn over who really make the cut. The MHRD, which has been working on the common entrance test’s format for over a year now, has acted with the best of motives in mind: to cut down the stress that students right out of Class XII find themselves in while taking multiple tests, to reduce the dependency on coaching institutes which promote learning by rote and to reinforce the importance of a school education.
