Postgraduate Entrance Exams as a Growing Phenomenon

 

Postgraduate Entrance Exams

The cut throat competition in higher education is a familiar subject that has been talked about for a long time now. The emergence of post-graduate entrance exams must be seen in this light. Elimination examination is something of an inevitable hurdle if one seeks to have a proper qualification.

Gone are the days of our parents where they got through colleges and universities and even government jobs with their mark sheets. In this regard there are certain major categories of courses that can be listed. This article is intended to give the reader a broad idea of the gateways to higher education in the country.

Medical

Held under the banner of professional courses, medicine is probably the most esteemed profession in the country; its difficulty level might be the reason behind this reputation. Here we have Allopathy, Homeopathy, and Ayurveda as main options.

Having obtained a graduate degree in Allopathy the next options may be an MD or a DNB though the former is given higher preference. This entails a number of all India entrance exams like AIPGMEE (All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination), AIIMS MD MS, JIPMER PG, PGI Chandigarh, CMC Vellore PG.

While the first in this list is the all India test for admission to 50% of all government seats in the country, others are of specific institutions. Applying to as many as possible will obviously improve the chances of securing a seat. Specializations, medical students are aware of and choice will depend on the rank.

Students interested in getting a foreign education say from the US can take exams like the USMLE. Graduates from some foreign institutes not recognized by the MCI (Medical Council of India) On the other hand have to clear a test conducted by them to obtain a license and then they can proceed with their MDs.

For a PG in Ayurveda there are institutes like the National institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur, Rishikul Ayurved College, Haridwar, Yerala Medical trust and Ayurved College, Mumbai, etc. It is usually a three year course and has variegated specializations.

Engineering

A B.E/B.Tech graduate aspiring for an M.E/M.Tech from any of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) must go through the GATE (Graduate Aptitude Test in Engineering).

Other popular examinations include All India Engineering Entrance Examination, B.I.T.S.A.T. or Birla Institute of Science and Technology, Entrance Examination of Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, Entrance Examination of N.E.R.I.S.T. or North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology, M. Tech Entrance Examination of Banaras Hindu University, M. Tech Entrance Examination of I.I.I.T. or Indian Institute of Information Technology in Allahabad, M. Tech Entrance Examination of International Institute of Information Technology or I. I. I. T., M. Tech Entrance Examination of Jamia Milia Islamia University in New Delhi, M. Tech Entrance Examination of Kerala University, P.G.C.E.T. or Post Graduate Common Entrance Test in Karnataka, P.G.E.C.E.T. or Post Graduate Engineering Common Entrance Test, S.R.M.E.E.E. or S.R.M. Engineering Entrance Examination, T.A.N.C.E.T. or Tamil Nadu Common Entrance Test, V.I.T.E.E.E.

Evidently, there are ample opportunities for am M.Tech. However a good institute, usually a government one will ensure better jobs or even an easier PhD.

MBA

An MBA degree is perhaps the most sought after one in the country today attracting graduates from engineering, economics, commerce, as added to BBA (Bachelor of Business Administration). In this respect, the Common Aptitude Test (CAT) facilitates admissions to the IIMS, the country’s blue-blooded Management institutes.

For the rest of the Government administered B-schools (about 600) we have the Management Aptitude Tests conducted by AIMA of the HRD Dept. The Narsee Monjee Institute is another reputable option. For the really ambitious the GMAT will take one to International universities and the popularity of this exam is steadily on the rise.

M.A./M.Sc/M.Com

This branch of higher education is a relatively new entrant in the world of entrance exams. As of yet, many Indian Universities conduct entrance exams for these and the trend is catching on.

The University of Delhi for example has been conducting exams for admission to its M.A. and other post graduate course for quite some time now and even these have minimum percentage eligibility in addition to the seats reserved for merit listed candidates.

The Jawaharlal Nehru University is even more difficult for admission there is purely entrance based. Still others like the Calcutta University Have 60% seats reserved for its own students while the rest is entrance based.

This is the general trend where the admission process is a mix of merit and entrance. A tendency of the universities to lean towards the latter however has been observed.

What is even more significant and probably troublesome to some extent is that there are no all India entrance tests for an academic post graduation.

Thus an aspirant must be very institute centric when it comes to an M.A. or an M.Sc. As mentioned earlier, entrances in this field are a relatively new phenomenon and to an extent the benefits of this system is disputed.

While the questions asked are very analytical thus ensuring the admission of good future academicians, it also has an element of risk. Many a times the most hardworking student gets left out for failing to produce analytical writing at that moment.

This is with respect to M.A. aspirants, for Humanities is a fluid subject and can have numerous interpretations. However, if one is interested in pursuing a course from outside of the country, the GRE accompanied by TOEFL will open up chances.

Letters of recommendations and academic papers are all part of the admission requirements. Scholarships are very few in this regard which makes it all the more difficult for the average Indian student to pursue such a course and the criteria for admissions are not that simple but not altogether impossible.

The international embassies can help in providing information and even guidance for the exams to some extent for a fee.
