Speed Post News Network

New Delhi : Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar on September 16, 2018, inaugurated a network of more than 3,400 Test Practice Centres (TPCs) spread across the 622 Districts in the country. Twentyfive Test Practice Centres (TPCs) joined Minister of HRD through Google Hangouts at the inaugural function in New Delhi the same day. These test centres have been set up to facilitate students appearing at entrance examinations for Higher Education to hold practice sessions to enable them get used to the changed mode and pattern of examination.

Interacting with Test Practice Centres (TPCs), the Union Minister said that the government is committed to provide quality education with equity, therefore we are launching Test Practice Centres across the country for students who do not have computers and smart phones. Now no student will suffer due to lack of resources, the Minister added. He further said that the government has changed the pattern of JEE (Mains) and UGC NET Examination from this year. Now it has become computer based instead of Pen and Paper mode.

The new exam pattern is more transparent, leakproof, scientific, student friendly and fast. In order to provide facility for practice for the changed pattern, National Testing Agency (NTA) has established Test Practice Centres across the country. NTA has also launched a practice App through which students can practice on their own on their computers or on smartphones.This is the real revolution in the field of competitive examinations, the Minister explained, according to a PIB release.

While interacting with students, Javadekar informed students that now they can access IIT PAL (Professor Assisted Learning) video lecture on SWAYAM Platform for the preparation of JEE. The HRD Minister received overwhelming response from all 25 Test Practice Centres. Students from various centres appreciated and thanked the government for this particular initiative.

In order to bring efficiency, transparency and qualitative difference in competitive examination process for Higher Education, MHRD has set up ‘National Testing Agency’ (NTA), (www.nta.ac.in) a premier testing organization, to conduct entrance Tests for higher educational Institutions. The NTA has been mandated to conduct JEE (Main), NEET (UG),UGC-NET, CMAT and GPAT examinations.
