Rural Students and Crocodile Tears - A Study on Common Entrance Examination in Indian Higher Education

Abstract

The judgment delivered by Honourable Supreme Court of India on 27.2.2006 by quashing the enactment of “Abolishment of CET (Common Entrance Test) for State Board Examinations” came as a big jolt to one and all that are interested in smooth conduct of professional colleges. This judgment was not unexpected. This paved way for a section of the students to get priority over others and created a sense of depression on the standards of profession admission in Engineering colleges. This article drives a peg on certain points of this procedure.

Keywords: CET, CBSE and State Board Examinations, Professional Colleges admission
