The recent recommendations made by Union Human Resource Development Ministry in a meeting held at the Delhi University, suggest that soon all central universities might have common entrance examinations for both under-graduate and post graduate courses. Alongside, there is also a proposal which suggests common syllabus and central ranking system. The meeting was attended by seven Central University Vice-Chancellors.

According to the directions, probability to facilitate credit transfer and student mobility would be considered in “common national curriculum.” This would allow students to migrate to other universities because of the common syllabus. This could also result in students taking courses and credits in one university while enrolling in another. Hence, the recommendations are still at the consideration stage.

“We are still at the preliminary stage of this recommendation which was proposed by the committee in place constituted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. We are just discovering possibilities and trying to evolve a feasible outcome. No decision has been made yet”, said DU media coordinator, Malay Neerav. A common entrance examination could turn out to be a boon for most students as it could provide a benchmark for students across boards and streams to compete for a seat. An All India Ranking would be a possible option for students to decide their courses and colleges, as currently there is no common ranking system within India as credible and efficient as the QS World University Rankings.
