Candidate exam number 911 in 2006

Candidate exam number 911 in 2006, inconsequentially ‘opted’ to write this entrance exam paper in English Language. There are many who were not successful in passing this paper given many nuances including the well researched ‘mother tongue benefit to learners’ – psychologists term it : Familiarity Bias. For some, the benefit of mother tongue exam language ensures their assimilation to some highly prestigious qualifications in the country…with the majority – in 2017 – unable to even participate on a simplified language platform, let alone vernac examination languages. A call to simplify entrance exam languages in certain professions is a progressive ones as it may eradicate any glaring systematic injustices to advance Radical Socio Economic Transformation.
