The education system in the country need serious reforms to make higher education accessible to students from all sections of the society Despite having the desire and skills, thousands of students in the country were not able to pursue higher education. Only 15 per cent of the students in the country have access to higher education. This situation should change. This situation should change. The Central and State governments should work towards making the higher education accessible to all, With the present education system, only those who secured high marks were able to enter the portals of higher education.

Urging the government to bring in proactive measures that allowed the establishment of more universities and autonomous institutions the present affiliation system had shifted the focus of the universities from research to the conduct of examinations. The varsities were burdened with the conduct of examinations, evaluation and publication of results.

Across the x-axis are the measurements of how well the employee is performing in the role.The nine-box model in the middle tracks performance
