Is it good or bad to have a two-tier common entrance exam for all IITs, NITs and IIITs with effect from 2013.


Is it good or bad to  have a two-tier common entrance exam for all IITs, NITs and IIITs with effect from 2013.

Few days back government of India announced decision to have a two-tier common entrance exam for all IITs, NITs and IIITs with effect from 2013.


Now the question we must ask

Is it good idea to have a one common exam for all the students?

I do not agree with the one common entrance exam for all IITs, NITs and IIITs with effect from 2013.

Why ?

for this we have to understand one common entrance exam is going consider standard 12th exam marks and percentage.

In India we got many boards and each board has its methods and subjects.

In India Mass copying is rampant.

We do not have same syllabus for the 12th standard examination in India each board got its own method and study material.

2nd most important is  the  copying, mass copying,

Now see the example in this example you can put any name of city.

Now we got 2 students.
Mumbai student name is M
City F student name is F

So student M without copying in standard 12 gets 80% marks.

Student F by copying in Standard 12 gets 85%

Now in common exam test for engineering both students without copying secure 75% marks.

In this case now as Student F has secured more percentage he will get the admission to the engineering collage not Mr. M.

Now example 2 –
In India we got different  boards state and central.

Now standard class 12th percentage is important.

Now state  F education minister is intelligent so he decides and manipulates the exam system in such way that  12th mark sheet will show more marks.

Orders the schools that exam paper should be easy , teachers should not ask difficult questions,  easy subjects carry more marks there are  many ideas to manipulate exam system and students will show more percentage on the mark sheet.

Because of exam pattern  now State F students will get more percentage.

But here is one State M whose education minister is not interested and he does nothing so  state M students suffer and their mark sheets show less percentage.

3rd state Name is  E , the education minister is educated  and honest and he makes it very difficult for the students to score. In this case also students will suffer.

Thus two-tier common entrance exam for all IITs, NITs and IIITs with effect from 2013 is not good for any student.

I just read a similar article on Yahoo, I think a uniform exam is good

I guess in all the plans and programs that involves 2 heads or more, there will be mismatch and conflicts….

I feel that it's ok. Currently, students have to write separate entrance exams for each board/college. So, having a single tier system may be good. But, its important that the standard of such exams be kept high.
