Abstract: The diploma holders’ performance in engineering education through the lateral entry scheme has been found far below the standard of the regular students who join after higher secondary education. Ideally both should fare equally at graduation. There are lacunae in the process of Lateral Entry LE) admission and few other parameters that pull down the efficiency of the LE standards. We have taken up this study to identify the parameters that cause the LE to cave in.
Keywords: Engineering Education, Lateral Entry Scheme.
Scope of the Article: Program Understanding and System Maintenance
