History of Indian Entrance Kerala s
Entrance Kerala s emerged with establishment of the University of Calcutta in 1857. The University introduced the Entrance Kerala , primarily to decide as to who was eligible for admission to the University. The Kerala attained the Status of a School Leaving Kerala .
Subsequently, the name was changed to Matriculation. After independence of India in 1947, the Kerala System was further revised: the Secondary Kerala after class X was called the Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) exam and the kerala after class XII was called Higher Secondary Kerala (HSC). However the Modern Entrance Kerala s of Today owe their existence to the various IIT’s (Indian Institute of Technology) set up during the 1950’s. It was the IITs which introduced the All-India Joint Entrance Kerala s (JEE) for their admissions.
The logic behind introducing these as formal procedure was that varied marks of different school boards could not be used to create a common merit list. Since the inception of JEE, various Indian States followed the pattern and started Entrance Tests for admission in respective states. Soon the Central Board of Secondary Education started PMT (Pre Medical Test) for select medical colleges in the country and the All India Engineering Entrance Kerala (AIEEE) for admission to National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and also for any engineering institution which may opt for it.
Entrance Kerala s held in India
Most of the Government and Private Educational Institutes conduct Entrance Kerala s for various professional courses. These Entrance Kerala s are basically Multiple Choice Question Papers or more popularly known as MCQ’s in the Academic Lingo. This Pattern was introduced as it was considered that scores obtained by school students are based on conventional, long-answer papers which might not represent the actual potential of a student.
The reason being given that these scores can represent a Human Examiner’s Errors and as such these would be unacceptable in a closely competitive environment where even a mark or two could affect a student’s career. This subjectivity was eliminated with the introduction of a Special Examiner. It is known as OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) reading Laser which was introduced in 2006.
