Govt gear up to stop Entrance exams for Engineering

engineeringThiruvananthapuram: Reports speculate that the state government of Kerala is gearing up to stop the practice of entrance exam for the students looking to join engineering.

Though the reports are yet to be confirmed and if by chance comes in to effect, admission to Engineering colleges would be solely based on Plus Two marks.

There has been a condition in the state that most of the seats in Plus Two schools and Govt Engineering Colleges remain vacant. This could have prompted the government to think of suspending with the entrance exams inorder to attract more students to the realm.

According to the sources, the government feels that by making Plus Two marks the only criteria for engineering admission, students will adopt state syllabus to score maximum marks expecting liberal valuation at Plus Two examination.

Reports suggest that, a discussion held by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy along with Education minister Adbu Rabb and Kerala Engineering College Management Association took a decision in this regard.
