Gujarat state may come up with new entrance test for professional courses, Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GujCET), moving away from Joint Entrance Test (JEE) which, presently, is compulsory for candidates for admissions in engineering and pharmacy.
Education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said: “We received several representations from various quarters of society and even from students and school managements, requesting the government to make Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) not mandatory for candidates seeking admission to engineering and pharmacy colleges in the state”. The government is positive about it and this year the state gave admission to students who had not appeared for the JEE examination.
The minister further said the government is taking opinions of various stakeholders including academicians. The government has got representations stating that those students who do not want to go away from their homes for studies should be spared from the all-India test, he said.
This can come as a big relief to more than one lakh students in Gujarat who go outside their home state for studies. Incidentally, candidates seeking admission to national institutes and colleges outside the state will still have to take JEE or a similar all-India entrance test.
Officials said that chief minister Anandiben Patel herself wanted this change in the admission process. She had earlier directed the state education department to take necessary steps and change the admission system so that students of the state not seeking admission in a national institution are not compelled to take the JEE.
Tamil Nadu and some other states also give admission on the basis of marks scored in the Class 12 board exams, said the official. It is worth recalling that Gujarat was among the first states to agree to the introduction of the JEE examination.
