Single national-level entrance test

NEW DELHI: Efforts are underway to hold a single national-level entrance test for students to get admission into engineering, medical and commercecourses from 2013, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal today said.

"Efforts will be put to hold an All-India national test in Science and commerce from 2013. This will smoothen the admission process into engineering, medical, economics and commerce courses," Sibal said, addressing a meeting of the Council of School Board of Education (COBSE) here.

He said this will reduce burden on students who are appearing in multiple-tests for admission into these sources.

The HRD Minister said the all-India level entrance test will be on the lines of SIT in the US.

At the meeting, the COBSE said it has prepared a core-curriculum for senior secondary classes in science and mathematics subjects.

"There is 90 per cent census among the school boards on the core-curriculum prepared on science and mathematics," Sibal said.
A similar core curriculum will be prepared in commerce in three months.

Sibal had in August last year pitched for a uniform core curriculum for Mathematics and Science for all school boards. He had said a core curriculum could pave the way for a common entrance exam for admission to professional courses
