The Mahatma Gandhi Kashi Vidyapeeth MGKVP has been recognized as the University of Historical Importance. Hence, the university administration has been entrusted the task of conducting the first medical entrance test for admission to ayurvedic and homeopathy courses.
It is for the first time that AYUSH entrance exam will be conducted separately because till last year it was being conducted under CPMT. It is not less than an examination, for the members of the conducting body because every time Kashi Vidyapeeth acts merely as a Nodal centre for the medical entrance examination but this time, Kashi Vidyapeeth is itself the conducting body.
The AYUSH entrance exam would be held for 700 seats in bachelors’ course in homeopathy (300), Ayurvedic (320) and Unani (80) streams and that pattern of exams will be similar to CPMT.
Medical education principal secretary Anup Pandey told that admission details and website would also be launched shortly.
