All kind of festivals is celebrated and worth taking part in all. Infrastructure is good enough. We get great exposure to the outside world. Friendly and knowledgeable faculties. The campus life is amazing. The college has an amazing library and the new one is coming up. There is an elective system too which helps in interaction across different schools. Every year there is football and volleyball leagues. This college ( CEPT university) is not same as any other college. It's different in all the ways possible. We have our college open till late. CEPT Navaratri is famous all over the state. Students come purely on merit. We have student exchanges and internships to do as well which inturn gives a great experience. The CEPT university provides us with winter and summer schools. Taking us to different cites and countries. There is no time limit in college. We have lots of food options on campus and just outside campus. The location is in the middle of the city which serves a great purpose. Courses are structured very well.

Sourandhi Saha Student Expert 23rd Jul, 2019
B.Arch admission is based on ACPC, Gujarat norms (50% seats) and on the basis of a valid score in NATA ( remaining 50% seats).

NATA cut off depends on various factors such as:

  • Total number of applications
  • Number of qualified candidates
  • Difficulty level of paper
  • Previous year cut off trends
