The results of the engineering aptitude test conducted by Kerala Public Service Commission and APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University (APJAKTU) to measure the engineering interests of students have been published. The test was attended by the 3rd and 4th year B Tech students of APJAKTU. As many as 182 students of Vidya passed the test and this made Vidya the self-financing engineering college in Thrissur District having the highest umber of students who had passed the test. APJAKTU has announced that the University will award 10 activity points to all students who have passed the test.
Even though the test was conducted primarily to assess the strengths of the IT infrastructure of engineering colleges for conducting online recruitment tests by KPSC, the results gave an indication of the overall quality of students in the various engineering colleges affiliated to APJAKTU. However some skeptics hold the view that the brouhaha regarding the highest number of students who have passed the test is of no consequence. The KPSC notification in this regard is appended below for reference.
