How MBA/PGDM admissions benefitted with the New AICTE 2020 norms

By Editorial

Due to the spread of the global pandemic, the schools, colleges, and universities have been closed since the middle of March. The education sector has been hit hard by the spread of the COVID-19.many entrance examinations have either been cancelled or postponed due to this pandemic. All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has come up with a new admission rule for colleges and high education providing institutes. The council has allowed these academic institutions to enrol students in the different MBA or PGDM programs based on their scores in the undergraduate qualifying tests. 

AICTE hailed itself more as a facilitator than a regulator. The council was looking for alternative modes for admitting students during the pandemic. These modes will not only benefit the students but also the various educational institutions in the country. 

For getting admission to the PGDM course, a candidate has to pass one of the tests like GMAT, CMAT, CAT, MAT, XAT, ATMA, or the Common Entrance Test of the particular state. Many of the exams mentioned above could not be held this year due to the ongoing fear of the spread of the pandemic. AICTE mentioned in a statement that there is no surety whether these tests will be conducted in the future or they have been cancelled.

Key points of the AICTE notification and the benefits

Under the current scenario, MBA and PGDM institutions have been allowed to enrol students based on their marks in the last qualifying exams. This is helpful for many students as they will be able to get in the institutions based solely on their marks. In this pandemic situation, this is helpful as one will be able to get through in a good institution without sitting for the entrance exams.

The relaxation is available only for the academic session of 2020-21. Hence students who will be enrolling for this year’s programs will not have to face the stress and pressure of the entrance examinations. In this situation, when people are already under much stress due to the pandemic, the stress of the exams can be avoided in this way. However, it must also be remembered that more preference will be given to those students who have appeared in any of the entrance exams. 

If vacant seats are still available, educational institutions can choose students based on counselling too. 

Schools and colleges continue to be closed, though unlocking is being done throughout the country in different phases. MBA and PGDM admissions have become relatively easy than the previous years due to these new measures undertaken by AICTE. Both students and the educational institutes will reap in the benefits of the change.
