Entrance Examination

An entrance examination is an examination that many educational institutions use to select students for admission. These exams may be administered at any level of education, from primary to higher education, although they are more common at higher levels. Entrance test is considered as a visa to enter into the corridors of elite institutions or admission to professional courses. If a student gets minimum marks in a academic examination, he will pass. But in the Entrance Examinations there is nothing like passing or failing. It is like competitive examination- acts like filters. It selects best among the students. Systematic planning, rigorous training and hard work are needed to crack the Entrance Tests.

Admission procedures and entry tests vary widely across states and universities/institutes. Usually, admission to a university in a state is based upon the performance of the candidates in the state-wide Higher Secondary examinations. These are usually given after completion of the twelfth standard/grade, for e.g. the HSC examinations of Maharashtra. Some states also have special entrance examinations for entry into engineering and medical programs, for e.g. the Common Entrance Test in Karnataka. Admission into federally established institutes like the Central Universities, the IITs and the NITs is usually based on a combination of performance in nation-wide exams such as the AIEEE and the state-level Higher Secondary examinations. Admission to the National Law Universities is based on a merit-cum- preference National level entry examination conducted annually by Common Law Admission Test [CLAT] organising Committee.
