The main feature is that students will not lose one year because there will be two examinations before admission. He/ she can appear in either of the two, or both. The best score will be taken into account for the result. The government said the move was meant to give students more choice and reduce stress due to “single exam conducted on one single day in the year”. This will give more chances to students, thereby giving adequate opportunity to bring out his/ her best.

The exams will be more secure and at par with international norms.
