As per the TOI report, the education department sources said that it is being planned to give 60% weightage to GUJCET and 40% to Class 12 scores this year. Usually, the merit list for admissions is prepared by giving 40% weightage on GUJCET scores and 60% weightage for Class 12 scores. However, there is no final decision yet.

“At a recent meeting between university vice-chancellors and the state education department, the issue of giving 60% weightage to GUJCET for college admissions was discussed,” TOI quoted Navin Sheth, the vice-chancellor of Gujarat Technological University.

Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSEB) has started the GUJCET 2021 registrations from today, June 23. The last date of application is June 30. GUJCET exam dates are yet to be declared. As per the report, GUJCET 2021 exam dates will be released after the announcement of exam dates for exams like NEET and JEE Main upcoming sessions.
