The state government is planning to stop engineering entrance examination in Kerala altogether and if the decision comes into effect, the admission to various engineering colleges would be done based completely on the marks scored by the students in their plus two examinations.

The decision has been taken keeping in mind the raising vacant seats in various Govt. Engineering Colleges and plus two schools, because many students couldn’t clear the entrance tests to get admitted in the colleges through the process. The government has thus decided to discount with the entrance exams, so that it could attract more and more students to join the engineering colleges in future. The government is also thinking that by making plus two marks the only criteria for admission in engineering colleges the students would keep their focus on the state syllabus and try to score maximum marks in their plus two examinations. This would also make them stick towards their syllable and focus completely on a certain pattern of questions.

The decision regarding abolition of entrance engineering exam was taken in a discussion held between the Chief Minister Oommen Chandy, Education minister Adbu Rabb and Kerela Engineering College Management Association. According to the members in the meeting this decision would help engineering aspirants who fail to make it through in the entrance exams a second chance to excel in the field and shine in future.
