Kapil Sibal, Union Human Resource and Development Minister, has requested the Deemed Universities to adopt the "common entrance test".
"While some deemed to be universities admit students to engineering colleges on the basis of the AIEEE scores or state-level engineering exams, in other states, some deemed varsities get together to organise an entrance examination. There are some deemed varsities which also hold individual entrance exams or even admit students on the basis of their Class XII board results. The ministry will discuss with them the possibility of joining the common test,” a senior official said.
IITs has clearly shown their displeasure with Kapil Sibal's idea of unified common entrance test. IIT officials argue that the standard of IITs will be diluted with such steps.
