  • The Institute does not have any right to deny issuing and accepting the admission form to any candidate within the stipulated time period

How is the counselling of GUJCET conducted?

The counselling is conducted in online mode only.

If the seats in reserved quota are full, can the candidate from SC/ST/SEBC/PH/ESM/get admission in Open category?

This question does not arise because category candidates are allotted first in open category seats. If the seats are not available, then only reserved category seats will be allotted.
