The Ministry of Human Resources Development is planning to come up with a centralised entrance examination for all the central universities. Delhi University will also be part of the list of central universities which will have to accept this examination. This exam will help students take admission in a more relaxed manner and it will get rid of those unrealistic cutoffs like 100 percent. This exam will allow all the students a same level of opportunity to take admission to their favourite course.
On 6th October’ 16, the ministry will conduct a meeting with the directors of all the central universities to discuss how successful is this idea. This idea has been suggested because a lot of complaints come every year related to admissions. This Wednesday i.e. 7th September’ 16 the HRD minister, Prakash Javadekar said that it is very important to address these complaints and find a solution because the number increases every year.
An entrance examination has become the need of the moment as this year 129 students from Tamil Nadu bagged seats in the famous SRCC of the Delhi University and 33 out of the total were from the same school. A lot of complaints were received related to the leniency that state boards do while checking answer sheets. The only drawback of this idea is that it will increase the number of exams that a student has to give to get an admission in college.
