NEW DELHI: The National Board of Examinations in Medical Sciences (NBEMS) will conduct the Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT 2024) today for candidates seeking admission into the Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) course. The GPAT admit card 2024, which was issued earlier this week, should be carried to the exam centre for verification purposes. The pharmacy entrance exam will be held from 2 pm to 5 pm in computer-based test (CBT) mode.

To avoid crowding at the exam centres, the NBEMS has allotted staggered time slots for candidates to report. “The reporting counter will close 30 minutes prior to the test start time. This will allow time for security checks, identity verification and checking in for examination,” it said.
