Common test to wean students away from coaching centres: Sibal

Disapproving of the growing influence of coaching centres that put engineering aspirants through a grind, making it difficult for them to concentrate on their senior secondary examinations, Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal said on Saturday that curtailing the power of such institutions was one of the objectives of the recommendation for a common entrance test. image

The coaching institutions “allow the rich and privileged to get their children admitted there and [these students] have a natural advantage [over financially weak students]. Coaching means focussing only on the IIT entrance examination without bothering about Class XII examinations. But this is not the best way to get the best students in the IIT programme,” the Minister said speaking to journalists after the 56th annual convocation of IIT-Kharagpur,

The report of the committee, looking into the proposal for a single-test for engineering admissions, was expected by the beginning of August. “I do not want the students to sit for 20 to 30 examinations. We must reduce the pressure on them and we shall do whatever it takes to lessen the pressure. Many proposals may come our way but we will choose the best for the system that allows the institutions not to depend entirely on one examination for the admission process.”

The counseling process for admission in Medicine and Dentistry will start from 10th of June, and the academic session will begin from 18th June, 2010. According to the Head of Counseling Process Mr M.S. Thimmappa, “Students should research well about the college, courses, placement records, passing percentage and infrastructure before taking admission into any college. This will help them make their decisions rather than just getting carried away by the popularity of a college.”

Bangalore Dentistry University Not The First Choice Of Medical Students

Dentistry colleges in Bangalore city are facing a big problem. Medical students are not showing any interest in dentistry studies. The first round of counseling is over for medical and dental courses but many seats are still vacant in dental courses. As per one of the KEA officials, “Dentistry is no longer a popular choice. Compared to general medicine, the placement in jobs is not promising either. A good number of candidates who study the course go on to set up their own clinics, but that is expensive. There were 739 seats in the dental course on offer, but nearly 400 have not seen any takers.”
