GAT-B 2022 (JNU CEEB ): Exam Dates, Application Form, Eligibility, Syllabus, Result & Admission

Last Modified on : 23 May 2024

Graduate Aptitude Test - Biotechnology (GAT-B) has replaced the Jawaharlal Nehru University Combined Entrance Examination for Biotechnology (JNU - CEEB). Till 2019, JNU CEEB was conducted by the National Testing Agency on behalf of the Jawaharlal Nehru University. However, from 2020 onwards, the GAT-B exam is being conducted by the Regional Centre for Biotechnology (RCB) on behalf of the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), Government of India. The exam is conducted to determine the eligibility of candidates for various DBT-supported PG courses in Biotechnology (M.Tech Biotechnology, M.Sc. Agriculture Biotechnology, M. Sc. Biotechnology, M.V.Sc., and M.sc. in allied areas).

The participating institute will provide admission to eligible candidates (who qualify for GAT-B) as per their respective admission criteria. RCB and DBT are not responsible for admission to the participating institutes. Students willing to study Biotechnology should appear in the GAT-B 2022 exam on 23rd April 2022.

GAT-B 2022 Latest Notification – The application process for GAT-B 2022 has started on 11th March 2022. The GAT-B (JNU-CEEB) 2022 exam will be conducted on 23rd April 2022.
