chaotic marked by multiple syllabi and the education system has struggled to level it (File) Related News The suicide of S Anitha in Tamil Nadu which has rekindled the debate over the National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) to medical and dental colleges is a reminder of the difficulties of levelling the field in a nation with multiple syllabi marking conventions and media of instruction Tamil Nadu was one of the states to oppose a nationwide entrance test run by a central board arguing that the test syllabus diverged from those of state boards Students also objected to the test being offered only in English and Hindi which was exclusionist This year Tamil numbered among the regional languages added to the list but students complained that questions in these languages were tougher than those in English and Hindi Reform seemed to open up fresh inequalities The education map of India has always been chaotic marked by multiple syllabi and the education system has struggled to level it In the 20th century it was common for central boards to informally award positive weights to students of boards known for a tradition of low marking like West Bengal (another state opposed to the NEET) to bring them up to par The need for common tests also arose with the recognition that all school boards did not mark equally Medical entrance tests were a special

demanding courses in medicine and dentistry they apply for at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels The proliferation of private medical colleges had made it possible for candidates to pay their way to a seat and the exorbitant costs focused their careers on recovery of the investment rather than research and the delivery of quality care especially to the underserved And yet the repeated protests and challenges that NEET has faced underscore how difficult it will be to erase inequality of access and truly level the playing field A common entrance exam does indeed guarantee the supremacy of merit and firewalls against corruption But it can work only if state syllabi converge at least in the sciences and entrance tests respect their benchmarks That would be the first step towards equitable reform For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Jammu | Published: October 9 2017 8:54 pm File photo Related News The BJP which shares
