Exam imbroglio

Refer to "It is marks that decide their future" (Magazine, Magazine, July 3). All admissions after school level for graduation and even post graduation and the professional courses should be without any entrance examinations.All admissions must be based on marks obtained in the last examination only.

"Testing the students too far" (Magazine, July 3) starts from LKG and continues up to P.G. The Tamil Nadu Government's sudden decision to scrap entrance test marks appeared as a panic reaction to the PMK agitation in this regard. The Tamil Nadu system was considered better than that in all other States because it gave credit to public exam marks also. But a single entrance exam system may be better especially if it is along with reforms to the exam system.
