Common test for admission to central universities from 2021
NEW DELHI: In a move intended to end the tyranny of cut-off marks based on Class XII Board exams for college admissions, the go nment has set up a seven-member committee to recommend modalities for “high quality aptitude test” for admission to undergraduate programmes of central universities that will come into effect from the 2021-22 academic session.
The computer-based common entrance exam, to be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), will be mandatory for admission to all central universities. “This is going to be implemented from the 2021-22 session for the central universities.” Amit Khare, secretary, higher education, said. There will be a general test as well as subject-specific tests.
As per UGC, as of June 2020, there are 54 central universities.
One nation and one test is the long pending demand and now going to be reality
Surely there would be hue and cry from states especially the Tamil Nadu
This is good. It gives an opportunity for b students for higher education.
Great. It seems india is moving in direction. Atleast education refoms good move.
Now the state universities has to vie for their competence in quality education

Good move, again by MODI GOVT.
I'm ok with it. But maybe it's best to remove the need for 12th board exam altogether because no point of getting a good score in 12th board exams any more.
Good, welcome decision. Should have been done long time back.
This is going to be far reaching decision because the setbacks were removed now
Excellent move. It should have been done long ago. Detractors should be ignored.
Better late than never.
Another awesome step by our trusted gt!
Good decision. But for opposition parties another point to create agitation. Hope Modi go nment takes care of this point .

A very laudable step on the part of the Central Go nment for admission of students in Central Universities.
Excellent decision!! Trust only Modi for such sy emic qualitative improvements!!
fantastic decision. Our generation missed out on this.
Another good reform. Now he is opposed, but If his reform agenda succeeds, Modi will be remembered as the father of Superpower India long after he has gone.
Super. Now Rahul ji will set up a fake rally to raise this issue with gt.
