Updated: 3 days ago

Banaras Hindu University (BHU) was founded in 1916 by Pandit Madan Mohan Malviyia, one of the great nationalist leaders.


The university that is known for its creativity and innovation provides various undergraduate programs that cover various subjects including humanities, medicine, Science, Social Science, performing arts, and fine arts.


BHU comprises three institutes, 140 departments, a constituent college for women, 6 centers of advanced studies, etc.


Until last year, Banaras Hindu University was conducting an undergraduate entrance test for providing admission to different undergraduate programs offered by the university.


However, from the academic year 2022, BHU has joined the list of CUET (UG) Exam, a national-level entrance exam conducted to provide admission to undergraduate programs in all central universities across the nation.


The Common Universities Entrance Test (CUET), earlier known as the Central Universities Common Entrance Test (CUCET), is the second-largest exam in the country.


The National Testing Agency will hold the authority to conduct the CUET (UG) 2022 Exam from this year onwards.


Admission to BHU is solely based on candidates' performance in the Common Universities Entrance Test.
