The preference to be differentiated into state quota and All India quota. Now the students have to run around for different exams.
The reason I stand for single test is that medical education is not state specific.We have common All India examinations and test for most of the jobs. Then why can/t there be a single test for Medical admission also? I suggest that it should be applicable to all all colleges and institutions granted permission to hold medical education.

Even this challenging situation would ease
I am of the opinion that there should be a single curriculum framework throughout India and should be equal to all sections of people without disparities. The outcome from having common entrance exam for professional courses, otherwise, would not be fruitful in providing equal opportunities to all. In India, education should be under the central government stream with a single board as against of current multifaceted board exams such as state board, matriculation, Anglo-indian, central board (NCERT) and so on. The affordable can get higher standard of education with financial backup while the downtrodden would be deprived of such standard. Common entrance exam would be ideal if alone these disparities have been completely shunned.
