AASU hails govt decision to hold CEE

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, Nov 20 � The All Assam Students� Union (AASU) has hailed the decision of the Assam Government for its decision to hold the Common Entrance Examination (CEE) for admission to the engineering colleges of the State in 2011. Earlier, the Government had decided not to hold the CEE for the purpose, but to follow the AIEEE ranking in case of those students who are domicile of Assam.

Several organisations, including the AASU, opposed this decision of the Government and demanded its revocation. The AASU argued that this decision would harm the interest of the vernacular medium students and the students of rural areas.

In the face of the opposition, the Government issued a notification revoking the previous one, announcing that CEE would be held for this year too for admission to the engineering colleges of the State.

However, the State Government has stated that it would abolish the CEE and go for AIEE ranking in 2012 for the Assam domicile students� admission to the State�s engineering colleges. But the AASU has said that it would oppose any move to abolish CEE in the year 2012 also.

The AASU has alleged that though the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) has introduced NCERT syllabus and not the CBSE syllabus, the State Education Department has stated that the 2012 engineering entrance examination would be held on the basis of CBSE syllabus.
