Now, a test to join colleges ?

Backed By HRD minister Sibal,Plan That Will Add To Student Stress Likely To Get Nod

New Delhi: In a move thats likely to further stress out students,a committee of vice-chancellors has proposed a common entrance test for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate courses for all the central university colleges and institutions.

The results of this test,being justified as an aptitude test,will be factored in over and above the school board results to determine admission into university.The committee has proposed that the weightage of school results and the common test will be fixed by individual university.
Funnily,there hasnt been a problem yet with the current system.So apart from trying to fix something that aint broke,the committees proposal will be layering the burden of students with yet another exam.The proposal has the backing of HRD minister Kapil Sibal and,therefore,stands a good chance of going through.

If implemented,the proposed system will lead to the emergence of a formal hierarchy of central universities.It will also lead to the junking of highly successful subject-based entrance system of universities like JNU.HRD minister Kapil Sibal thinks its a good idea,although he maintains that the proposal will be further finetuned and wider consultation will take place and universities will have the freedom to take it or leave it.In two months,the committee headed by JNU V-C B B Bhattacharya will give its report.Aptitude test is a good idea.It will prepare a child for the real world and destress him from so many entrance tests, Sibal said.Fifteen central universities have a common test but these do not have undergraduate courses.

One of the V-Cs who attended the meeting said,The proposal runs counter to the current focus on destressing students.In case of IITs and other engineering colleges,the ministry is trying to emphasise on Class XII results and in case of central universities,Class XII marks is not enough.It is bound to be opposed.Children from all over the country come to these institutions with good marks and get admission.A common test might create a new barrier.

Law entrance exam 2011 to test current affairs.

Bangalore: From next year,aspiring legal eagles will be tested on their aptitude and reasoning.With the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) set to be held on May 15,the CLAT committee plans to emphasize more on certain sections of the question paper.

To start with,it wants to emphasize on current affairs rather than on general knowledge.We want to test students knowledge on current affairs than just some standard facts and figures, M P Singh,vice-chancellor,The West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences,Kolkata,said.Second,he said,there might be exclusion of legal knowledge as sections like legal aptitude,critical and logical reasoning will be given prominence.However,the question paper components will remain like last years and only certain sections will be stressed upon.The components are: English,general knowledge,legal law,logical reasoning and maths.Instead of legal law,focus will be on legal aptitude.Maths will be basicClass X level.We want to judge the students analytical ability,and not knowledge alone, Singh said.
