The past decade has witnessed sweeping changes in the field of professional education in India and also in the domain of Entrance exams. The rules for admission to the elite colleges in Engineering, Pure Sciences, Architecture, Design and Medicine have been changing almost every year in the past decade. However, the Union Govt. under PM Narendra Modi has ushered in a stable Entrance exams regime from 2017. Since 2019 is an election year, we expect no major changes in the rules in 2019 which will be same as that prevalent for 2018. The 2019 scenario for admission to premier colleges is as follows :
NB: There is zero weightage to XII Boards marks for admission to Medical colleges. All Entrance exams in India from 2019 shall be conducted by an independent Testing agency set up by the Union Govt. of India in 2018 called National Testing Service (NTS).
In Medicine stream too, there are hardly 52000 MBBS seats available in the 400 odd Medical colleges of India. There are over 100 BAMS and BHMS colleges in India too catering to over 10000 seats.
