Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GUJCET) 2020 is a state-level entrance examination that is held once a year for students seeking admission into various engineering and pharmaceutical courses available in colleges across the Gujarat state.
The exam is administered by the Gujarat Secondary, and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) and the admission procedure, including counselling of students, is managed by the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB).
Students who have completed their 10+2 exams in science stream from a recognized board can apply for this examination.
The applications are available on the official website of GUJCET at gujcet.gseb.org from 21st January to 15th February. But this year because of the unforeseen circumstance, dates had to be changed.
The applications which were supposed to be available from late January to early February this year were re-opened from 18th July to 31st July allowing more students to apply for the same.
Seeing almost negligible chances of conducting the exam as per the previous schedule, the exam date has been shifted to 24th August 2020, and the last date for filing the application online has also changed from 31st July to 7th August 2020.
