NTA stands for National Testing Agency and established by The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India. Previously, we don’t have single body to organize all the national entrance cum fellowship examinations. Because of this, we cannot collaborate with international agencies like ETS etc and NTA officially announced on its website as NTA will develop linkages with bodies like, ETS, College Board, ATP etc and Gradually NTA will develop the domain expertise of testing which will be recognized not only at the national level but also at the international level.
Importance of NTA
It may bring international recognition to national entrance examinations and also easy to collaborate with international agencies because of single board organizing all the entrance cum fellowship examinations.
It may control or avoid the paper leakage issue by organizing the exams in online mode (Computer Based Exams).
