Kolkata: Union human resource development (HRD) minister Prakash Javadekar in Kolkata on Saturday made big-ticket declaration that will influence the fortunes of lakhs of students emerging in joint entrance examinations in medicine and engineering nationwide.

At the point when asked by the HRD service for what good reason diverse arrangements of questions had been set , CBSE — the examination leading body — had refered to security issues given the sheer number of competitors and the vast number of dialects included on the off chance that it depended on interpretations.
The HRD service seems to have shot down CBSE’s contention. “From one year from now, there will be unimportant interpretation of papers with the goal that such issues don’t emerge,” Javadekar said. He was talking at a symposium here. “We are holding up to see the last final result of NEET. The One Nation One Test in Engineering is at a dialog organizing now,” he said.
Bengal and Tamil Nadu had restricted the proposition, refering to focal over-reach in training, which is a state subject.
