(a) They produce a certificate from the competent authority (such as Controller of Examination, Registrar etc.) to the effect that the result of the concerned qualifying examination has not yet been declared.
(b) It is evident from the mark sheets(s) of the previous examination(s) relating to the course of qualifying degree that the candidate has secured at least stipulated minimum percentage of aggregate marks (for example 50%) in the previous examination(s) (except final examination whose result has not been declared upto time of counseling) of the qualifying degree (This will not be necessary for SC/ST candidates).
(c) The candidate gives an undertaking that he/she will submit the mark sheet of the qualifying examination on or before 14th August of the admission year and if he/she fails to submit the original mark sheet on or before 14th August of the admission year, his/her conditional admission in the course shall automatically stand cancelled and the candidate will not claim for refund of fees paid for conditional admission. This relaxation is not applicable for supplementary examinations/ revaluation results.
Further, if his/her aggregate percentage of marks in the qualifying examination is below the stipulated minimum percentage of aggregate marks, his/her conditional admission will also stand automatically cancelled and the candidate will not claim for refund of fees.
(ii) Candidates who were admitted as regular students to any course of study in this University through Entrance Test in earlier years(s) and who were eligible for appearing in the concerned Examination shall not be allowed to re-appear in the Entrance Test for admission in the same Course, unless specifically permitted by the Ordinance of the concerned Faculty. Further, such candidates who were not eligible for appearing in the concerned examination due to shortage of attendance or not filling the examination form in time will be allowed to appear in the Entrance Test for that course if otherwise eligible.
(iii) If the applicant has passed the qualifying Exam where grades are awarded and:
(a) where the Grade Sheet does not mention the equivalent percentage of marks from grade points, the candidate should submit such a Certificate of conversion from the concerned Institution mentioning either the converted percentage, or the formula for the actual conversion of grade point average to percentage of marks.
(b) where the Grade Sheet itself mentions the equivalent percentage of marks from grade points, or the formula for such conversion, the candidate should get both sides of the Degree/Grade Sheet photocopied showing the equivalent percentage of marks/conversion formula.
(iv) “Aggregate percentage of marks” will not include grace marks awarded to a candidate. It will also not include the marks of those subjects where only pass marks are required such as compulsory language compulsory environmental studies etc. and which do not contribute to the total in the final (degree) marksheet. Similarly the marks of additional subject (if any) for improvement of aggregate percentage/division will not be considered for calculating the aggregate percentage for admission in the University. For further clarification see clause “Notes relating minimum eligibility requirements” serial (v) given below.
(v) The percentage of marks in the aggregate will be computed as evidenced from the final mark sheet of the qualifying examination. However in case of graduate examinations, where the final mark sheet is of two or more types based on only Honours subject or all the subjects studied in three years, the aggregate shall be computed on the basis of total marks secured in all the subjects studied in three years. For example, in case of students passing BA (Hons.)/B.Sc. (Hons.) from BHU, in earlier years the final marksheets were of two types viz based on only 1000 marks or on 1800 marks. In such cases, the aggregate shall be computed based on total of 1800 marks rather than on 1000 marks. Further, where final marksheet is based on only Hons subject but the candidate has studied other subsidiary/similar subjects also during the study of course, the marks of these subjects will also be included for computation of aggregate percentage. Still further, in case of any ambiguity/interpretational difficulties, the decision of the University will be final.
(vi) (a) Degrees/Certificates recognized by Association of Indian Universities (AIU) shall only be deemed as equivalent degrees/certificates.
(b) The Distance Education Council of Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU)/Association of Indian Universities (AIU) is the only authority to recognise the Degrees/Certificates of Distance Education. Such Candidates are provisionally permitted to appear in the Entrance Tests but will be required to submit certificates from Distance Education Council of IGNOU, New Delhi regarding recognition/approval of the courses.
(vii) Notwithstanding anything contained in the Prospectus of Studies regarding the Courses in which admission is made through Entrance Test, the eligibility requirement for the purpose of admission shall be only those which are mentioned in the Information Bulletin of the academic session concerned.
(viii) Application Forms of candidates who have submitted forged/fake certificates or adopted fraudulent means shall be REJECTED. Further, such candidates shall be debarred from appearing in any subsequent Entrance Tests conducted by BHU.
(ix) Candidates are allowed to appear at the Entrance Tests provisionally subject to the final verification of Mark sheets/Degrees/Certificates, validity of Certificates/Mark sheets of Qualifying Examination and also of non-involvement in the adoption of unfair means in any of the University Examination/Entrance Tests held earlier, at the time of admission.
(x) Mere appearance in the Entrance Test, or securing pass marks at the written Test does not entitle a candidate to be considered for admission to the Course unless he/she fulfils the eligibility conditions. APPLICANTS MUST FULLY SATISFY THEMSELVES ABOUT THEIR ELIGIBILITY AS PRESCRIBED ABOVE, BEFORE FILLING IN THE APPLICATION FORM.
(xi) If an applicant is inadvertently allowed to appear at the Entrance Test who otherwise does not fulfill the minimum eligibility requirements, he/she cannot, at a later date, use that as a right to claim that he/she meets the eligibility requirements.
The University reserves the right to cancel/refuse admission at any point of time if it is found that:
(i) Minimum eligibility requirements are not fulfilled.
(ii) False documentation has been done, or, facts have been suppressed.
(iii) Any other similar valid reason.

(xii) Candidates admitted to any Course in this University shall not be eligible to pursue simultaneously any other full-time Course in this or in any other University/Institution.
