• Relevance of a national level common test that covers all institutions — government and private, aided and unaided and run by minorities
  • Supreme Court has noted that an admission process should meet triple test:
    • FAIR, TRANSPARENT AND NON-EXPLOITATIVE
  • It curbs the commercialization of medical profession
  • It may also provide a national pool of eligible students from which government and other institutions could choose students in the order of merit on the basis of their reservation scheme or any other extant policy.
  • Problems:
    • However, the courts cannot be impervious to the other side. Aspirants belong to different States, speak different languages and come from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
    • Any common system that is introduced must be practical and feasible. It should not be hastily thrust on unwilling or unprepared sections of society without due deliberation.
