Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test(GPAT)


Graduate Pharmacy Aptitude Test (GPAT-2015) is an all India Examination to be conducted by The Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, Vadodara on behalf of All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi.
The Scores in Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineering (GATE) have been in use till the year 2010 for admission in Master - Programme in Pharmacy (M. Pharm) and also for awarding fellowships/scholarships to Pharmacy Graduates along with engineering graduates. The Organizing Committee for GATE 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. Pharm and also to award fellowships/scholarships to Pharmacy graduates, AICTE decided to organize and 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 examination.
On the recommendation of the National Monitoring Committee for GPAT (GPAT-NMC), the onus of conducting the first GPAT examination i.e. GPAT-2010 and the subsequent one i.e. GPAT-2011 was given to The M. S. University of Baroda, Vadodara by All India Council for Technical Education, New Delhi.
The responsibility of conducting the third consecutive GPAT examination i.e. GPAT-2012 examination has also been given to The M. S. University of Baroda, Vadodara.
