 It is worth mentioning that AICTE has been successfully conducting the online Common Management Admission Test (CMAT) for admission into PG management programs on a pan India scale. In fact, it is their success with the online CMAT that first persuaded the council to turn the GPAT into an online test.


In order to make sure that GPAT 2014 is executed flawlessly, the AICTE has directed the respective state secretaries dealing with technical education to inform all concerned States and Jurisdiction agencies about the revamped pattern of the examination.


The State Governments, under the new system, are required to register online free of charge for accessing scores as well as detailed merit list of qualified students.


AICTE claims that the decision to turn GPAT into a computer-based entrance exam brings along with it a multitude of positive outcomes, including:


·         The online entrance test will allow students to select their preferred exam center (read: city) from a list of 57 designated locations across the country.

·         Candidates are also allowed to select their preferred date of appearing in the exam (the forthcoming GPAT will be held from Feb 25 to Feb 27, 2014)

·         All allotment will be made on a first come first served basis. However, the final allotment will be subject to the number of available slots in a particular city,

·         The entire process will carve in the way for unprecedented transparency and accountability.

·         24 x 7 support will be available (GPAT helpline number: 022-66258304; Fax number: 022-25814283; email id:
