The University Grants Commission (UGC) is considering a proposal to merge the three biggest entrance exams in the country, namely NEET, JEE Main, and CUET, as per reports. The Common University Entrance Test (CUET) was launched this year and in its debut year, the entrance exam has got over 1 million applications. Now, the experts are contemplating if engineering and medical education too can be brought under the same ambit.
The move is aimed at reducing stress and logistics for students. He claims that students take on an average of two exams if not all three. Thus, instead of testing students on similar subjects, again and again, it is being considered if we can have a common entrance exam. There is consensus yet on the same and stakeholders from all concerned fields will first discuss all aspects.
