Single Engineering Entrance Exam from 2018
Single Engineering Entrance exam (like NEET) for Engineering and Architecture admissions from next year
The central government announced on Friday that admissions to engineering and architecture courses across the country will be made through a single entrance examination from next year. This will do away with the multiple tests conducted by the state governments, central agencies and private institutions.
The single entrance test for engineering admissions will be on the lines of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test which is an All India level examination for medical and dental admissions in India.
However, the admissions to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) will be done on the basis of JEE Advanced to be held after the single engineering entrance exam.
