NIRMA University has made the All Indian Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) mandatory for students seeking admission to its engineering courses. The institute has announced that henceforth students will not be admitted through the Gujarat Combined Entrance Test (GUJCET) conducted by Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB).
Previously, the university filled up 75 per cent of the seats with candidates qualifying GUJCET and the remainder through AIEEE. There are a total of 600 engineering seats in Nirma University.
But there is a silver lining for the students of Gujarat. The university has decided to reserve 75 per cent of the seats for students within the geographical boundaries of Gujarat, but they need to qualify AIEEE for admission to its engineering courses.
