The All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) is a yearly col ege entrance examination in India. The
exam is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Delhi for admission
to MBBS and BDS courses in several medical col eges around the country. Presently, 15% of
the total seats in al medical and dental col eges run by the Union of India, state governments,
municipal, or other local authorities in India, except in the states of Andhra Pradesh and
Jammu and Kashmir, are reserved for candidates who qualify this examination.
The All-India standardised test was revolutionary in its concept as its primary aim was to
enable equitable availability of medical education to all regions of the country and to foster
Till recently an additional uniqueness was that it was one of the few all India competitive
examinations (along with the examinations for defence services) that was completely merit
based and without any reservations. However, in 2006, under pressure from the Arjun Singh
headed Human Resources ministry, reservation for SC,ST and OBC has been undertaken in
AIPMT.Know More About :- BITSAT Question Papers Exams.Edurite.comPage : 1/3
It consists of exam at two levels. First is preliminary conducted usually on 1st Sunday of the
April month. The second is mains conducted in the month of May. It is the most awaited and
respected exam of the pre-medical exams. AIPMT is equivalent to the AIEEE which is
conducted by the CBSE for entrance to snationally funded institute in India. In 2011 the
preliminary examination was conducted on 3 April 2011 and the main exam is to be conducted
on 15 May. Both the levels test the students on the subjects of physics (25%), chemistry
(25%), and biology (50%).
The pattern of AIPMT is being changed with effect from 2010. Due to complaints about the
unreliability of the subjective mains, the mains have been made completely objective like the
preliminary. The preliminary examination consists of 200 question while the mains consists of
120 questions. The duration for both the examination is 3 hours.
Each item carries 4 marks. For each correct response the candidate wil get 4 marks. For
each incorrect response one mark wil be deducted from the total score. No deduction from
the total score wil , however, be made if no response is indicated for an item in the answer
sheet. The candidates are advised not to attempt such item in answer sheet, if they are not
sure of the correct response. More than one answer indicated a question wil be deemed as
incorrect response and wil be negatively marked.
The students securing above 50% marks in the preliminary examination qualify for the mains.
The cutoff is lower for the reserved candidates. OBC reservation is being implemented as per
the questionable directives of the government, but only in central institutes(i.e. not in most of
the col eges covered under AIPMT).
About 1900 MBBS and 250 odd dental seats are available through AIPMT, but ranks up to
2500 can reasonably hope for selection due to overlap with other entrances. In both the
prelims and the mains NCERT books are used to prepare questions(almost 100% in biology).Read More About :- Previous Years Question Papers Of BITSAT Exams.Edurite.comPage : 2/3
