GujCET  for admission to engineering, pharmacy courses on April 23

AHMEDABAD: Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) for admissions to engineering and pharmacy programmes will conduct Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GujCET) on April 23 this year.
From 2017, GujCET has been made compulsory for admissions in engineering, pharmacy and diploma courses in the state. The state government had opted out of Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) on the ground that Gujarati-medium students were not able to do well in JEE. Officials said that the exam, having four papers for Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics of 40 marks each in OMR pattern, would be conducted at district headquarters. The papers will be based on class XII (science) syllabus and will be conducted in Gujarati, English and Hindi.
Dates for online application will be announced soon. It is expected that the students will get about 20 days’ time after the board exams to prepare for the entrance test. In 2017, 1.32 lakh students had appeared in GujCET out of which 66,473 had taken the test in A Group and 65,542 in B Group.
