The aspirants who are applying to GPAT 2018 exam we are advised that all aspirants must have ensure about GPAT exam syllabus; because in the GPAT 2017 exam all questions coming form GPAT 2018 syllabus. In the GPAT 2017 test there will be some topics covered by GPAT exam board, and the topics are as follows Pharmaceutics Syllabus, 
Pharmaceutical chemistry Syllabus, Pharmacology Syllabus, Pharmacognosy Syllabus etc. 

Here we mention GPAT syllabus 2018 which coverd by us very carefully; please read it very carefully.
