Students seeking admissions to engineering, medical and dental colleges at the undergraduate level can now opt for a common online entrance test to get into select Indian colleges. The Education Rating and Assessment Foundation, a non-profit, has launched the Uni-GAUGE-EMed examination, which provides pan-India, computer-aided assessment platform for multiple universities. The first examination for UG courses is scheduled on April 26, 2015 and will be held in about 60 cities simultaneously. The test for PG medical and dental courses was conducted earlier on February 14. The universities and colleges that have partnerships with the organization have signed up to accept the results of this test. According to B.N. Subramanya, CEO of the ERAF, Students clearing the exam will be eligible for B.Tech, B.E, M.B.B.S and B.D.S courses in various private and deemed institutions such as M. S. Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences, Reva University, Kolar's Sri Devraj Urs University and Faridabad's Manav Rachna University. More universities are slated to join the platform and ERAF hopes to enroll around 30,000 students. The syllabus for the exam is derived from coursebooks in state boards, CBSE and ISCE curriculum.
