The state government of Kerala plans to call off engineering entrance examination in total. If this decision takes place, the admission in several engineering colleges will be done fully on the basis of marks gained by the students in their plus two examinations.
This decision was taken by the government keeping in mind the growing vacant seats in various Govt. Engineering Colleges and plus two schools for the reason that many students could not qualify the entrance exams for getting admission in colleges by means of the process.
The government decided to stop the examination so that it may attract more and more students in the future. The government also believes that the students would keep their focus on the state syllabus and will try to do well in their plus two examinations as plus two marks are the only criteria for admission in engineering colleges. This will help them to stick to their studies and they will concentrate on a certain pattern of questions.
The decision with regard to eliminate engineering entrance exam was taken after a discussion between the Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Education minister Adbu Rabb and Kerela Engineering College Management Association.
