Tamil Nadu refuses Common Entrance Test for universities

The human resource development ministry is planning to introduce common entrance test (CET) for all universities in India.

The ministry has suggested that universities take class XII results and marks scored in entrance examination into consideration for admission to undergraduate courses. The state governments, however, has ruled out a common entrance test for engineering, arts, science and medical courses. “With the growing need for quality in entrance examinations to admit students, MHRD has time and again emphasized on the need for a well-organized, national-level examination,” official said. Also, TN refuses Common Entrance Test for universities

The ministry discussed the proposal in detail during a meeting of all vice-chancellors recently with some favoring and others opposing it. The HRD ministry has also asked universities to upload all information related to admission policy, courses and curricula, in-take and output strength of each course on the university website to maintain better transparency.

    we saw your announcement in internet in the month of April 2011 that there will be common medical entrance test only from 2014 . But now it has been updated that there is an common medical entrance in 2013 itself in Tamilnadu .

    please consider this issue as it likely to affect the child’s future.
