The two issues of significant interest that currently loom over the higher education scenario in India are the phenomenal numbers of high school graduates produced by the country annually and the relevance of what we provide to them in terms of higher education. For instance, in the academic year for schools that has just gone by, the combined number of students who appeared in the Class 12 exams conducted by the CBSE, the Uttar Pradesh Intermediate Board and the Bihar State Board was in excess of 50 lakh. It shall not take much imagination to extrapolate from here to arrive at a rough estimate for an all-India figure. It is bound to be a staggering number.
