Common Entrance Test for all Central Universities: Javadekar

Some universities are famous for their studies and some are famous for their admissions. Higher cut offs have always been a matter of concern. So to ease the process of admissions, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), has planned to implement a new common entrance test for all central universities. 

 
 
MHRD has decided to organize a meeting on October 6 with the central universities regarding the implementation of the new admission procedure for colleges.  
 
 
In the meeting various issues would be discussed. Besides discussing with vice-chancellors from central universities about the implementation of common entrance test, the issues pertaining to the shortage of staffs would also be identified.
 
 
It is believed that the common entrance test would do justice to talented students seeking admissions in prestigious universities. 
 
 
Shockingly, 129 seats of the 188 in the Shri Ram College of Commerce went to students from Tamil Nadu as universities in Tamil Nadu are quite generous in awarding marks to students.
 
 
Not only this, out of those 129 students who enrolled in Shri Ram College this year, 33 were from one particular school. 
 
It is believed that entrance exams would mend up for such bias.
