The Scores in Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineers (GATE) have been in use till the year 2009 for admission in Master’s Programme in Pharmacy (M.Pharma) and also for awarding fellowships / scholarships to Pharmacy Graduate along with engineering graduates. The Organising Committee for GATE has expressed its inability to include Pharmacy graduates in GATE with effect from the year 2010, owing to operational problems due to large number of candidates appearing for GATE examination.
Therefore, in order to facilitate admission of Pharmacy graduates in M.Pharma as also to award fellowships / scholarships to Pharmacy graduates, AICTE has decided to organize to conduct an examination in the name of Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT) with effect from academic year 2010-11. Accordingly, a National Monitoring Committee (NMC) was constituted for monitoring the issues pertaining to the policy as well as conduct of GPAT.
NMC, constituted by AICTE has recommended for conduct of 1st GPAT i.e. GPAT-2010 by The M.S. University of Baroda/ Vadodara – 390 002, which has agreed to conduct the examination on May 02, 2010 throughout the country.
