Sibal wants single common entrance exam for all higher education institution

Saturday, June 19, 2010 08:13:54 PM, ANI

New Delhi: Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal has mooted a plan to conduct a common entrance examination for admission to all higher educational institutions in the country.

Sibal said as a step towards this, the CBSE, will merge the All India Engineering Entrance Exam and All India Pre-Medical Test from coming academic year.

The merger of AIEEE and AIPMT will help students immensely.

While Physics and Chemistry will be common for both, the medical students can answer only the Biology paper and the engineering students can answer the Mathematics paper.

Addressing the Education Ministers'' Conference, Sibal said the HRD Ministry was presently debating whether it is possible to have one common exam after class XII that will test general awareness and aptitude.

The universities will give weightage to the Class-XII marks and entrance marks of students while giving admission.

The Council of Boards of School Education (COBSE) has already prepared a common curriculum in science and mathematics.

Sibal said the state boards should adopt the curriculum which would help in holding a common entrance test.
