Banaras University now does not conduct any Pre-Medical Test commonly known as the BHU PMT but the admission is rather based on NEET examination, in order to shortlist individuals into its medical courses.
BHU commonly known as the Banaras Hindu University is one of India’s best universities and was founded in the year 1916 via Pandit Madan Mohan Malavya with the cooperation of great personalities like Dr Annie Besant.
BHU is considered among the most famous universities in India in which every year many numbers of applicants got admission.
This university provides higher education in the Medical field and provides lots of courses to the claimants.
Applicants who want to get admission to the BHU MBBS programme all need to submit their BHU PMT Exam Application Form.
The BHU MBBS/BDS application form will be released in the second week of June by Medical Counselling Committee (MCC). The candidates will have to score the minimum qualifying marks in their National Eligibility cum Entrance Test – NEET medical entrance exam to be eligible to fill out the application form for BHU MBBS.
