The GBTU is conducting UP State Entrance Examination (UPSEE 2013) from April 20 and 21, 2013 for admission to the Engineering Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), Pharmacy (B.Pharm), Architecture (B.Arch), Hotel Management and Fashion & Apparel Design courses commencing from the session 2013-14.
University official said, "We received a good response from the students for MBA, MCA entrance exams last year. We were able to declare results earlier than usual. This year, we plan to make at least the application process for admissions to B.Tech courses totally online,"
He said it was still not decided to go online or not for B.Tech entrance examination. "The number of students who appear for engineering is far higher than of those who take MBA, MCA exam. It will take sometime for us to take final call," said an official.
The computer based test is an attempt by the university to do away with the conventional pen-and-paper mode. University pro-chancellor V K Singh said, "A lot of prestigious examinations have gone online. We think it's the better option for students. Maintaining records of thousands of students on paper become difficult."
Last year, the university had given online application process and offline entrance exam for B.Tech courses admissions. To take the final decision, university has called for meeting of officials next week. It is likely that GBTU will stick to its old format of examination pattern. There will be 150 questions, each carrying four options.
According to the official, after 5% of NRI and Management quota, 20% admission to mba will be done through Common Management Admission Test (CMAT), and remaining seats through State Entrance Exam (SEE). For MCA, 95% admissions will be done through SEE while 5% will be for NRI and Management quota. In engineering, 20% seats will be filled through All Indian Engineering entrance exam, 5% through NRI, Management and remaining through SEE.
