BFA Admissions were earlier done based on the merits of 10+2 or entrance exams conducted by various institutions. But with effect from the academic session 2023, many institutions have opted for scores in CUET (Common University Entrance Test) as a criterion for admissions to BFA courses. Now CUET exams are being held online in the last week of May 2023 and many institutions will consider the scores of CUET for finalizing the admissions possibly by July 2023. Some of the institutions which have still not opted for CUET would be taking the students as per merit of 10+2 or entrance exam conducted by that institution. Some of the prominent earlier entrance exams for BFA like DUET, BHU UET, UPCET, JMI, etc have been replaced with the CUET exam with effect from the academic year 2023.

In my personal opinion students interested in going for a BFA course should appear in CUET as that gives them a bigger canvas to try to get admission to the institute of their choice.

BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) is a 4 year UG degree course and provides specialized learning in the field of Applied Arts, Painting, Visual Arts, etc. Candidates having passed the class 12 exam with at least 45% marks from a recognized board are eligible for BFA admission 2023.
Another requirement is that the student should have studied English or Hindi as one of the core subjects in high school.

Candidates shortlisted after the merit/entrance test/CUET, whatever the case might be, will be called for an interview and after finalization of admission would be required to deposit the fee.

Some of the prominent institutions for BFA are -
1. Sir JJ School of Art.
2. University of Delhi.
3. Jamia Millia Islamia University.
4. Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj University.
5. Kamla Nehru College for Women.
6. University of Lucknow.
7. Osmania University.
8. Mumbai University.
9. Savitribai Phule Pune University.
10. Amity University.

Coming to the MFA (Master of Fine Arts), it is a 2-year PG course. It provides learning on various topics about performing arts like architecture, sculpture, painting, poetry, music, etc. Many institutions in our country offer this course and candidates having secured 50% marks in their bachelor's degree like BFA, BVA, or BBA from a recognized university can apply for this PG course. Institutions have their own entrance tests and selection procedures for these admissions. Some of the institutions are admitting candidates qualifying through the CUET PG entrance exam. Most of these admissions would be finalized by July 2023.
