Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) is currently busy preparing the rules for admissions, that the students of Class 12 are eagerly waiting for. This task is expected to be completed by next week and then pamphlets detailing these rules will be published for students. Admission process will kick-off only after this process completes.
ACPC, the body that regulates and conducts admissions, first has to prepare a merit list based on 60% Class 12 score and 40% GUJCET result. This way the students are then allotted colleges.
Even though ACPC completes all the required procedures next week, admissions cannot begin as the Joint Entrance Examination Main (JEE-Main) is yet to be conducted. It is believed that students of state board as well as CBSE board appear for this exam. Hence, the JEE can be conducted only after CBSE exams end on June 17.
With all these processes, Class 12 students, whose results were declared this week, will probably have to wait till June to apply for engineering and pharmacy courses. This delay is not new as the same situation was seen last year as well, when the Gujarat government decided to mass promote all Class 12 students due to Covid-19.
There are about 66,000 engineering seats in 133 colleges and about 5,200 pharmacy seats in Gujarat.
