GPAT (graduate pharmacy aptitude test) is a computer-based test administered annually by the NTA (National Testing Agency) in India. Before 2018, the test was administered by AICTE (Indian Council for the Development of Vocational Education and Training). The purpose of the test is to determine which students will be admitted to M.Pharm programs after completion of their Bachelor’s degree.

GPAT scores are not only used for admission into colleges but also for scholarships and financial aid. The test does not cost more than before and the topics covered are similar to Bachelor’s degrees in pharmacy. GPAT is important for pharmacy students who want to move on to the next level of education and career.
