GujCET 2020 exam date: GUJCET to be held on July 31, check details here

AHMEDABAD: The Gujarat Common Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GUJCET) will be held on July 31, the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) said in a media statement on Tuesday.

The announcement comes a few days after GSHSEB announced results for Class XII (science stream) students.

More than 1.25 lakh students from across the state are expected to participate in GUJCET exams that were earlier scheduled to be held on March 31. The four-month long delay has been because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown.

State education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said that online modules have been prepared for candidates who are preparing for various entrance tests like GUJCET, NEET and JEE.

GSHSEB, which conducts GUJCET, has seen 12,5781 class XII (science) students registering for the exam. This consists of 49,888 students from Group A, 75,519 from Group B and 374 from Group AB.

The state level exam is held annually for science students seeking admissions in degree engineering and pharmacy courses in government, grant-in-aid and self-financed engineering institutions in Gujarat.

The results of class (science) board exams are announced along with the GUJCET results.

However, due to COVID-19, the state government had deferred the GUJCET test that was earlier scheduled to be held on March 31. The class XII (science stream) exams were held in March ahead of the lockdown implementation and the results were declared on May 17.

A merit list for college admissions is drawn up by giving 40% weightage to percentile obtained by the candidate in GUJCET 2020 and 60% weightage to percentile obtained in class XII (science) board exams.
