Eligibilty criteria to appear in NIPER JEE 2020 is mentioned below:

NIPER JEE 2020 Eligibility

For Master’s Courses:

  • Qualifying Exam: For M.S. (Pharm.)/M.Pharm./M.Tech. (Pharm.), the qualifying degree should be B.Pharm. or M.Sc. (Biological Sciences) or M.Sc (Organic/Analytical Chemistry/Life Sciences/Botany) or B.Tech. (Chemical Engineering) or equivalent or B.V.Sc. or M.B.B.S. or BAMS.
  • Minimum Marks: The candidates have to score minimum 60% marks in aggregate in the qualifying exam.
  • Relaxation: For SC/ST candidates, the minimum marks required in qualifying exam should be 55%. For Physically Handicapped candidates, the minimum marks are 50%.
  • Appearing candidates: Final year candidates can also apply.

For Ph.D Pharmacy Courses:

  • Qualifying Exam: The prerequisite qualification is M.S.(Pharm.)/M.Pharm/M.Tech.(Pharm.) in relevant discipline.
  • Minimum Marks: Candidates are required to pass the qualifying exam with at least 60% marks (55% for SC/ST and 50% marks for PH candidates)

GPAT score card will be valid for 3 years. So, If you have cleared the exam of GPAT 2019, it is still valid and you can appear in NIPER JEE 2020 based on that. But, now if you appear in GPAT 2020 then your latest score of GPAT i.e GPAT 2020 score will be considered amd in case you fail then you are not eligible.

i hv cleared gpat 2019, it has the validity of 3 yrs. i want to give niper jee 2020 , do i need to give gpat 2020 test or gpat 2019 score will be valid? ans suppose that i m not able to clear gpat 2020 then gpat 2019 scorecard will be valid or not?

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 1st Jan, 2020


see if you want to improve your rank you may give gpat exam this year also. but if you dont want to apply then your previous gpat score also counts.  according to latest notification gpat score is valid for 3 years. so your 2019 gpat score is valid for 2019-2020, 2020-2021, 2021-2022 academic session.

hope you may understand.
