The dates of Presidency University admission 2018 and Indian Statistical Institute entrance exams 2018 are clashing. The Presidency University UG entrance exam, known as PUBDET, will be held on May 12 and 13, 2018. Whereas, the PUMDET for PG admission is scheduled on May 13, 2018. ISI also plans to conduct entrance exam for B.Stat, B.Math, M.Stat, M.Math, M.S, M.Tech, PG Diplomas and Research Fellowships courses on May 13, 2018.
