Only students with higher education were eligible to get admission here. Before admission, students had to give an examination (which we know as entrance exam in modern times) and only the student who passed it could get admission in this university. There were a total of six entrance gates in this university and a Pandit was present at each gate, he used to take the examination of the students before admission in which generally only 30 percent of the students were able to pass.
