In not so fortunate turn of events Patna Women’s College announced the scrapping of B.Ed. Entrance Test 2018. The examination held on May 26, 2018, has to be dropped due to the conduct of B.Ed. Combined Entrance Test in the state.
Constitution of India Article 30 (1) gives minorities right to establish and administer educational institutions. As per the article, they are allowed to administer educational institutions of their own choice.
The notice issued by the Governor’s Secretariat, Bihar, to the Patna Women’s College directed that all the B.Ed. admission in the state shall be done on the basis of the common entrance examination and no University or college shall hold individual examination for the admissions. In response, Patna Women’s College has asked the aspirants to apply for B.Ed. Common Entrance Test but has also sought clarification on why it cannot conduct the entrance test. The College argues that as per Article 30 (1) of the constitution, it has the right to carry out its own admission process.
For now, the Patan Women’s College B.Ed admission is on hold. Aspirants seeking admission in B.Ed. course must apply for Bihar B.Ed. Combined Entrance Test.

Nalanda Open University is conducting B.Ed Common Entrance Test 2018. The exam will be a 2 hour examination that shall be held in pen and paper mode. In it, the candidates will have to solve 120 multiple choice questions. The questions will be asked from General English Comprehension, General Hindi, Logical & Analytical Reasoning, General Awareness, and Teaching-Learning Environment in Schools. The distribution of questions and marks in the exam will be as follows:
While some stand with Patna Women’s College and demand that college should be allowed to execute its own admission. Other’s believe that in the larger picture, a common entrance examination benefits the students more. Instead of applying for separate colleges and taking numerous exams, candidates just need to prepare for one paper and get admission on the basis of it.
To this, the opposition argues that a single entrance exam will eliminate choices and students will be restricted to having only one attempt to get the admission. The opportunity to do better in next exam will be eliminated.
What is your take on the matter? Is it good to have a single B.Ed.Entrance Examination for admission in the state or should the colleges be allowed to carry out the individual admission process. Let us know your thoughts, in the comment section below.
