Goa Engineering Admissions 2024: Transitioning to JEE Main, Pharmacy Through JEE & NEET

Published on

In a significant development, the Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Goa has recently announced a major shift in its approach to admissions for the 2024-25 academic year.

Notably, admission to Engineering degree courses in Goa will now be facilitated through the prestigious Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main 2024, a national-level examination, marking a departure from the traditional Goa Common Entrance Test (GCET or Goa CET) previously used for such admissions.

This transformative decision means that Goa students aspiring for BTech admission will need to appear for and successfully qualify in the JEE Main 2024, embracing a more nationally competitive approach to securing seats in Engineering programs. In previous years, the state conducted GCET for admissions to professional degree courses, including BTech and BPharm.

For those interested in pursuing Pharmacy courses, DTE Goa will consider scores obtained in the subjects of Physics and Chemistry from both JEE Main 2024 and the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2024. This flexible approach allows Pharmacy aspirants to choose between JEE Main or NEET or even take both exams, offering a range of options to cater to their individual preferences and strengths.

JEE Main 2024 is scheduled to be conducted as a computer-based test in two sessions, one from January to February and the other in April. Registration for the first session is currently open on the official JEE Main website, jeemain.nta.ac.in. Candidates can choose to participate in one or both sessions, with the final ranking based on the best score obtained if they opt for both.

On the other hand, NEET 2024 will be conducted in the traditional pen-and-paper format, scheduled for May 5. While the registration process for NEET has not yet commenced, it is essential for aspiring Pharmacy students to stay updated on the official NEET website for the latest information.
