Set to conduct a total five entrance tests including Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), National Eligibility Entrance Test –Undergraduate (NEET-UG), University Grants Commission-National Eligibility Test (UGC-NET), Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) and Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT) in 2020, the NTA, in a press release dated July 7, 2018, announced its plans that have been designed to bring about qualitative difference in the entrance examination process. The highlights of the announcement are:
JEE (Main), for the first time since the entrances’ introduction, will be conducted biannually 2019 onwards. The intention behind conducting the examinations twice before the start of admissions for the next academic session is to provide aspirants with a choice as well as a way of relieving the performance pressure. As a result of such an initiative, students will now get adequate opportunity to showcase their best efforts and reducing the stress of getting a single chance a year to choose one’s career path.
NTA, however, clarified that it is not mandatory to appear for both the tests. The scores collated from the test will be equated using psychometric tools and standardization techniques. The best of the scores will be used for admission purposes.
NTA will conduct all the tests in multiple sittings and a candidate will be able to choose a convenient date from the examination schedule. Scores of multiple sittings will be normalized to arrive at the final score.
In order to circumvent logistical and security issues, NTA is deploying advanced encryption software that promises to deliver the tests just in time. This change in the delivery system will reduce chances of question paper leakages and other such malpractices.
NTA is taking on board subject matter experts and psychometric specialists in order to develop a thoroughly scientific testing system. The afore-mentioned specialists will be responsible to develop the testing material, viz., the question papers.
Despite all the changes that NTA is attempting to bring about in the national entrance test scenario in India, it has promised simultaneously that no immediate alterations will be made in the syllabus, question pattern, examination languages or examination fees. This indeed, is a huge relief to the student community.
