All-India test for varsity admission, says Sibal


At the India Today Conclave here on Monday, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal said: “We should have an all-India exam system for admission into universities. I want to put this into effect in three years in science stream.”

Sibal said the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE), the apex advisory body on education, has already given its approval for such a system which will make the admission more convenient.

This common entrance will be a single-window system for science pass outs who are interested for admission into engineering, medicine and related courses. The common entrance will reduce inconvenience to students who move from state to state to appear in separate entrance examinations conducted by different agencies for admission into universities and other institutions.

Sibal also said that the country needs an uniform National Curriculum Framework (NCF). “We are going to set up an academic authority for preparing the NCF,” he said. Sibal said that he was in favour of the three language formula in schools.
