Karnataka: No more ‘integrated courses’ in PU colleges

PU colleges could lose recognition if they club regular classes with coaching classes for CET, AIEE, JEE, CA, CPT, and other entrance exams In Karnataka, it is common for pre-university colleges to offer ‘integrated courses’. But now the state government will crack down on all PU colleges doing so, reports The New Indian Express. There have been many complaints that these colleges are charging exorbitant fees because it is an ‘integrated course’ – where regular classes are combined with extra private tuition. As a result, the Department of Pre-University Education has decided to take action against colleges offering integrated courses at the PU level. <!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>It is reported that colleges club coaching classes with regular classes and hike up the fees. The daily adds that the government does not approve of private tuitions as it feels that the college should provide education which does not require any private coaching. The report quotes a senior official as saying that the Department of Pre-University Education will also take action against principals and management of colleges engaging in this practice under the Karnataka Education Act of 1983. PU colleges could lose recognition if they club regular classes with coaching classes for CET, AIEE, JEE, CA, CPT, and other entrance exams. Over the last four years, private coaching centres are now present in PU college campuses where they conduct classes. They provide coaching for entrance exams like CET, IIT-JEE and AIEEE before and after college hours.While some colleges offer these private coaching classes as an add-on, others make it mandatory and charge high fees. The daily reports that private coaching classes tie-up with colleges so they don’t have to go and look for customers. Those colleges that offer private tuition charge about three to four times of the stipulated fee for the PU course, adds the daily.

To curb coaching menace, HRD to bring IIT preparation app, says Smriti Irani

Aiming to combat the “menace” of coaching, the HRD ministry is coming up a mobile app and portal containing free lectures from IIT faculty on various subjects and previous years’ question papers of entrance tests to these prestigious engineering institutions. HRD Minister Smriti Irani on Wednesday said it has also been decided that the questions in the IIT-JEE entrance test would conform to class XII syllabus.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>Speaking at an event organised by Education Private Society for India (EPSFI), a body comprising private deemed universities, Irani said her ministry aims to resolve the various regulatory issues faced by these bodies while expressing concern over commercialisation of education.Referring to the “menace of the coaching industry”, Irani said one of the biggest pressures on students preparing for IIT entrance exam is to seek outside help in preparation. “That is why the government has decided to dedicate in the forthcoming two months, an IIT-Pal portal and mobile app on which 50 years of IIT (entrance) examination papers will be available free of cost. In all segments of knowledge on the basis of which students take the IIT entrance exam, some of the IIT academicians and faculty members will give lectures available on this app, so that students can have that additional learning,” she added.Keeping in mind the requirements of students who have studied in regional languages, this content will be available in 13 languages. She said in conjunction with IIT council, it has been now ensured that the question papers conform to the Class XII syllabus. Irani said another “reality” which needs to be confronted is about commercialisation of education. “We all know that capitation fee is not allowed. We all know that students cannot be harassed in the middle of the academic year to cough up money for which no disclosure was made,” she said, suggesting that not all institutions in the private sector were following the norms.She asked the EPSFI to to engage with administrators and weed out “wrongdoers who bring a bad name to the sector” like fake universities and added that states have already been asked to take action against such universities.

Testing times: Here is what the current NEET controversy is all about

A point of confusion for lakhs of medical seat aspirants across the country is the National Eligibilty Entrance Test (NEET), which will be the single entrance exam for all medical colleges in the country.

The Supreme Court has approved the schedule decided by the Centre, CBSE and the Medical Council of India (MCI). According to the order, the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) fixed for 1 May is to be treated as NEET-1.

The order had said those who had not applied for AIPMT will be given the opportunity to appear in NEET-II on 24 July, and a combined result will be declared on 17 August, so that the admission process can be completed by 30 September.

With the Supreme Court refusing to entertain the Centre’s plea to stay first phase of NEET, which is to be conducted on 1 May, it is most likely that NEET will happen according to SC’s order this year.

Why NEET could be a bad idea

On 11 April, Supreme Court ordered all medical colleges, including deemed institutions, to take admissions on the basis of NEET. With this decisions, institutions like AIIMS were no more permitted to conduct private entrance tests.

Representational image. AFP

This invoked confusion among students, who were looking forward to appearing for the medical entrance exams, and their parents.

Since the syllabus of NEET is covered by CBSE but not by other state boards, students could

A parent, Mr M. Manik Reddy, whose daughter has applied for AP-Eamcet was quoted by Deccan Chronicle as saying, “This will favour students from central syllabi like CBSE and ICSE, which cover the NEET syllabus, while state boards lag behind.”

The order had come out less than a month before the students would be appearing for the entrance exam. By bringing all colleges under one NEET, experts fear that it will affect the students as they earlier could fare well in one while scoring low in the other.

Speaking to Firstpost, Vimala Ramachandran, former professor at National University of Educational Planning and Administration said, “I think putting all the eggs in one basket is not every good for all the students. For example if there is only one entrance for all medical colleges, then my fear is that it may actually adversely affect children from different parts of the country.”

She felt that a single entrance exam for medical would not give us quality results. “There should be more than one exam because it depends a lot on which board you are coming from. If JEE was the only entrance exam for engineering, that’d be quite sad because students can go to Kota and get trained to give the exam. That does not necessarily mean they do better. I know a lot of very bright young people who have done well in life and who could not get through JEE because they could not go through this rigorous coaching,” she said.

“The Pilani (BITS) entrance test is administered online and you can give the test in multiple attempts to improve your score. Maybe those kind of exams would have greater value than having pen and paper exams,” she added.

Why NEET could be a good idea

According to a report by The Hindu, the MCI is of the opinion that NEET would avoid multiple entrance tests and minimise corruption and irregularities in admissions to medical courses, while the IMA has welcomed the apex court’s decision, saying it will help safeguard the sanctity of the medical profession.

Since NEET will be held in two phases this year, students who had not applied for AIPMT will be able to appear in the second phase in July.

However, Ramachandran stressed that there is only one positive aspect of NEET. “There would be some standardised benchmark. We also know that there multiple exams and the quality is fairly variable. This could be the only positive aspect,” she said.

Another reason why NEET could have a positive effect is that it will stop colleges from conducting malpractices during admission process.

“With NEET, unscrupulous and money-minded businessmen entering and operating in the field of education will diminish,” Supreme Court lawyer MR Shamshad was quoted saying by Financial Express,

On Friday, the Centre moved Supreme Court to seek approval on keeping separate exams for MBBS and BDS courses.

If that is brought to effect, students would face further problems in getting a seat in either of the fields.

“Students who give the common test, they mostly have aim of getting into MBBS. If they don’t(get into MBBS), then go for BDS. If they only give exam for MBBS and not score enough, they’ll be stuck,” Sanjana Uppal, a final year MBBS student from Pravara Institute of Medical Sciences, told Firstpost.

To cut a long story short, even though NEET was declared illegal and unconstitutional by Supreme Court of India in 2013, it is the current reality for lakhs of medical aspirants in the country.

IITs want more foreign students to crack their entrance

To promote brand IIT more aggressively among South Asian and African countries, the premier institutes have decided to seek help from the external affairs ministry to promote the 10% supernumerary quota for foreign nationals, which has largely remained vacant till now.To increase the number of overseas students, IITs now want to focus on South Asian Association of Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Maldives.<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>One African country, Ethiopia, and a far-east country, Singapore, would also be part of the fresh brand-building exercise.IITs want to have more entrance examination centres in South Asian and African countries and want cooperation from embassies to promote the 10% quota created a few years ago.IIT Bombay director Devang Khakhar, who is meeting MEA officials in Delhi on Friday to discuss the strategy, confirmed the development.”The 10% additional seats for foreign nationals have remained largely vacant. Things can change if we can spread word through different channels and have entrance examination centres in more countries,” Khakhar told dna.”This would also help strengthen India’s soft power globally, especially among neighbours,” said an IIT Delhi professor.The move also aims to position IITs better in the global rankings of universities, where the number of foreign students is a major parameter.Despite having the best talents from India and a huge spending, none of the IITs find mention among the top 200 global institutes. This has been a cause of concern not only for the IITs but also for the ministry of human resources and development.Foreign nationals have to appear in the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) and compete in the general category, which has 50% seats of the total capacity of 18 IITs and Indian School of Mines (ISM) Dhanbad.The18 IITs and ISM Dhanbad, together, offer over 10,000 seats for various undergrad programmes, admissions for which are done through a common test (JEE main and JEE Advance at present).”We conduct entrance exams in a few centres abroad but only a handful of NRIs and students with Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI) take the test and less than 50 crack it. This defies the whole purpose of having the quota and the idea of diversity,” said another IIT official.To increase diversity in the campus, IITs also offer 25% seats to foreign nationals for post-graduate and research programmes.
