According to the sources the draft National Education Policy (NEP) 2019 has proposed a common entrance examinations for admission to all colleges through out the country.
The new policy will allow the students to give the exam multiple times throughout the year and the best score will be considered for the admission.
In the present scenario the cutoffs for popular courses stay above 96% in popular universities like Delhi University. Which solely depends on the marks scored in the board exams. The draft NEP proposes that the tests will be held multiple times a year which will give students the opportunity to prepare for their best.
The NEP committee has also recommended for parallel reforms in the assessment procedure in Class 10 and Class 12 board exams. As per the draft, the National Testing Agency will be conducting the exams and the new system will enable the students to choose a range of subjects they are interested in and the universities will be able to see individual students portfolio.
While reacting to the news former DU Vice Chancellor Deepak Pental criticized the current selection procedure and suggested that” we need a national level monitoring committee to look at the board exams and the students need to undergo slightly difficult level of exams”.
