Central Board of Education (CBSE) is now heading to conduct IIT-JEE Entrance examination in various countries from the next year.
This entrance examination is conducted with a motive to select students across the world for undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by various universities in the nation. A number of seats of the foreign applicants are separated as there will be no effect on the number of seats for the Indian students. Next year, this entrance exam will be conducted in Singapore, the UAE, and SAARC countries. But, according to daily national news, Pakistan has not been included in the list if the countries in which the entrance test is going to be conducted in 2017. The main reason behind the exclusion of Pakistan is considered that the various security and other issues, including that of students procuring visas for study in India will be a problematic issue to deal with. "Considering various factors, especially difficulties involved with regard to students procuring visas, it has been decided that entrance tests for IITs may not be conducted in Pakistan for the upcoming year," a senior official said.
"The entrance tests to the IITs abroad have been held till now only to admit Indian nationals. This is for the first time that it has been planned to admit foreign students through tests held abroad. It is aimed that the plan would be operationalised from the JEE/GATE exams to be conducted in 2017," sources told the news daily.
The examination will be conducted in 2017 and the outreach programme would be conducted later this year. For more such news across the nation, always stay updated here at Brainbuxa.
