Abstract: Indian higher education system is one of the largest systems, where the multiplicity starts from existence of more apex bodies that regulate the higher education, type of institutions which are segmented under different groups in terms of establishment / autonomy / affiliation / course offerings, different school education boards offering academic & vocational streams of education, multiple criteria that are in vogue in admissions and state –to state varying reservation policies that are prevalent across the nation, in addition to the reservation policy of the central government, that cater the needs of the people across different states / language / culture. The institutions of higher education in India adopt multiple criteria for the selection of the applicants based on the availability of the seats and demand prevalent. It cannot be compared with any other nation in the world and proved beyond doubt that any methods adopted in such nations cannot be implemented as it is in India. However, needless to say that, it is high time to review the existing admission system and look for the avenues of improvisation with respect to quality. The study analyses the qualifying examinations and various admission processes adopted in the institutions of higher education across India.
