GUJCET and CBSE Exams Clash, Both on April 8
Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) students in the state, who have opted for fine arts subject in class 12 science stream, will not be able to appear for Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GUJCET) due to clash of dates. Both exam dates have been fixed on April 8.
“Both exams are important and mandatory for students, who are looking for a career in medicine or pharmacy after their 12th board,” said Tina Karbhari, parent of Aashna.
GUJCET exams which are held on April 15 every year is being held on April 8 this time. “We called GUJCET exam secretary DS Patel, asking him to guide us in forwarding our complaint. But, he was rude and instead asked me to write to CBSE board or meet up officials in Gandhinagar Sachivalaya. I asked him for a suggestion, but the call was abruptly disconnected,” Rupa Parikh, whose daughter Rujuta is studying in Navrachana School, said.
“It’s mentioned in GUJCET booklet that CBSE students will have to take the test to seek admission in professional courses. They should then decide on the date that does not clash with board exams schedule. I have sent an application to the GUJCET authorities and all the parents are also going to write to CBSE board,” added Parikh.
