The examination is conducted every year for admission to various engineering, diploma and pharmacy courses offered at various institutions in the state. This year, a total of 9189 candidates have registered to appear in GUJCET 2022 in around 46 exam centers across the state.
So far latest updates are concerned, GUJCET 2022 admit card has been issued. Applicants can download the same from the official site at gujcet.gsebht.in.
In 2021, around 1.17 lakh candidates registered for GUJCET and the examination was conducted in 34 centers. This year, GSHSEB has taken necessary precautions to avoid malpractices as well as to conduct the examination following covid guidelines of the state.
According to reports from local dailies, 9189 students have registered for GUJCET 2022. Although the number of candidates are significantly less compared to the previous years, 46 schools have been allotted as examination centers.
Each classroom will accommodate only 20 students, which is 15 seats less compared to last year’s arrangements. All the classrooms are equipped with CCTV surveillance to avoid the occurrence of malpractices. The significantly less number of candidates registered for the exam may be due to the pandemic and the lack of proper classes for students. However, the exact reason for fewer registrations is still unknown.
