  1. Sir/ma’am

    Since GPAT is now valid for three years then can we use the same GPAT score for PhD admission too?

    Also suppose I get admission to masters in 2021-22 with GPAT score of 2019(since valid for 3 yrs) and then in 2021 gave another GPAT and used it for PhD admission in 2023-24(since validity is for 3 years)…is it possible to do so?

    I will be very thankful to you for guidance here.

    Yours sincerely,
