Ahmedabad's Nirma University will now accept AIEEE

Ahmedabad’s Nirma University will now accept AIEEE marks from the current academic year.
Previously, Nirma used to conduct two different entrance exams for admission to its engineering course.

From this academic year, there will only be one exam – AIEEE for entry to engineering courses in the varsity.

This means students from Gujarat who wish to study in Nirma will have to appear and clear this test. Vice-chancellor of Nirma University Dr. NV Vasani has already put a proposal before the government about this switch over.”On the lines of other universities in Gujarat like PDPU, we too have decided to switch to AIEEE” said Dr. Vasani.

He also said that students from Gujarat will get the benefit of 50% reservation in the final merit list.
