All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) India holds an entrance exam each year for aspiring candidates who want to get into the medical field. The Institute is a medical research center, which is also an educational institute run by the Indian Government. The annual entrance exam that they conduct for admission courses in medicine is a highly prestigious test and not as easy as it might appear. Lakhs of students prepare for this entrance test and work day and night preparing to get through. There are only 50 seats each year that are awarded by premium medical colleges through the AIIMS entrance candidates.
This year’s AIIMS Entrance 2016 is on 29th of May 2016 and students gearing up for the exam need to keep few things in mind:
- Candidates aspiring for AIIMS 2016 require certification from a higher secondary examination board with minimum aggregate of 60% in subjects like Biology, Chemistry, Physics and English.
- Application forms for the AIIMS entrance test are available at notified centers, but also available online for candidates to fill and submit to save time.
- A candidate needs to know the exact pattern of the entrance test so that he/she may not miss out on attempting questions due to lack of awareness.
- The questionnaire consists of 200 multiple choice questions 9MCQ) out of which 60 questions are from Biology, Chemistry and Physics each. The remaining 20 questions are of General Knowledge and are reason based questions.
- The exam score is calculated on the basis of negative marking and a student needs to be very certain of the answers he/she gives.
- Candidates should prepare questionnaires that have been given in refresher books and also part of the previous AIIMS entrances. This will enable a candidate with a deeper understanding of the subject matter that is focused upon in the test. One should also time (race against time phrase meaning) themselves to make sure that they do not end up wasting time.
- NCERT course books for classes 11th and 12th should be learnt and understood well by a candidate as the exam is set through these books and one should not take (take with a grain of salt idiom synonym) them lightly.
