BHU is well known university and such practices are not there and its a very big university with good reputation.

Shivam, eligibility criteria is a set of guidelines that are necessary to be fulfilled if one wants to apply for an examination. The eligibility criteria in tetms of age for BHU UET 2020 states that an applicant who is applying for Arts, Commerce and Science courses should not be more than 22 years of age as on 1, July 2020 ie the date of birth of the candidate should fall on or after 1 July 1998. However, there are some relaxations made for reserved category students which are

* A relaxation of three years in upper age limit for OBC/PC Category students.

As you haven't provided your category status, it is difficult to tell the exact eligibility in your case, however, you can check the age eligibility as I have shared above according to your category to check if you are eligible or not.
