Gujarat Education Board wants clarification

Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Board (GSHSEB), wrote a letter to the Health Department of the state, asking for clarification on admission procedure for medical courses. According to the letter, the GSHSEB has asked the department to clear the doubt, whether the medical admissions will be given on the basis of Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GujCET) or on the basis of National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).

GSHSEB official says "The board which conducts the examination has still not made any arrangement for conducting GujCET. There is no clarification over admission rules, or on whether to conduct GujCET or follow NEET. Hence we have sought clarification from the health department which is supposed to frame the rules".

On the other hand, this has created a lot of confusion among the students of the state as now, they are in a dilemma that will they have to appear in GujCET as well. Officials added "Usually the examination is conducted in the third week of April and the application forms are filled along with those of the board examination. However, now with the examination coming close, students will be forced to rush to schools to fill up forms".

The State took a decision in 2013 to conduct GujCET, in order to give admissions in medical and dental courses across the state. Later, the matter was decided by the apex court and NEET was scrapped and the state went ahead with the admissions through GujCET.
