Hi Shamsher Nazir, This is a difficult question to answer. The admission to BPT or BPTh courses for open seats in through entrance exams. These entrance exams have age limits. As such, you do not qualify for any entrance exam for graduate courses, even if all exemptions such as cast and income group are considered. However, regulations for management seats are not well defined and as such, some colleges do accept admissions beyond the age limits. You will have to contact the desired college on this.
