GUJCET 2019: The exam date for the Gujarat Common Entrance Test (GUJCET) has been changed for the second time in the last one month. The Gujarat Secondary and Higher Education Board (GSEB) announced that the exam will now be held on April 23. The reason behind the change in GUJCET 2019 exam date is the clash with CBSE exams. Previously, GUJCET was to be conducted on March 30, which was then postponed to April 4, giving the same reason.

''Earlier, before changing the date to April 4, we waited if there would be any change announced by the CBSE for ten days. But recently, the central board changed its exam date from April 2 to 4. This will clash with the GUJCET date and since CBSE students too take GUJCET so this change in date was necessary,'' said GSHSEB chairman A J Shah.

The earlier change in the GUJCET schedule from March 30 to April 4 was announced by the GSHSEB on January 10. The chairman said that before announcing this third revised date, the CBSE chairman was consulted. ''I confirmed from the CBSE chairman herself before announcing the fresh date this time. It was only after she assured that there would not be any further changes in the schedule that April 23 was decided,'' added Shah.

The last date to apply for the GUJCET is March 15, 2019. Also, the application fee for the GUJCET 2019 is expected to be Rs 300.
