In the several education reforms announced by Finance minister Arun Jaitley, he has proposed to establish a National Testing Agency which will conduct all the academic entrance examinations in India.

This will take away the burden from Central Board of Secondary Education and All India Council for Technical Education in terms of the administration work related to examinations.

Exams conducted by CBSE as of now

Apart from school exams at Class 10 and Class 12 level for CBSE affiliated schools, CBSE conducts major higher education related entrances in the absence of any national testing body.
