AIIMS MBBS 2018 - 100 Seats Added, Students Welcome the More

Last Updated - February 28 2018

AIIMS 2018 registration link has become active. Candidates can either visit the official website or click the above-given/ link for the application form from February 05, 2018. The last date of registering for AIIMS MBBS 2018 is March 05, 2018. Announce date of Hall Ticket is May 10, 2018.

Meanwhile, the organizing committee of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) 2018 entrance exam is amongst the most awaited entrance exams in the country. This committee has releasement for the candidates.

Chandigarh has been confirmed to be the online examination center for AIIMS MBBS 2018 exam. It is a big relief for the aspirants living in or nearby Chandigarh.

  • So, it would just be a matter of luck for many students for getting a set of comparatively easier questions. Many students are afraid with the possibility that the students going to appear in the two shifts on May 26 will be able to inquire about the questions of the first two shifts on May 25 via their friends and other sources.
  • AIIMS MBBS 2018 exam will be organized on May 25 and 26, 2018. There will be two shifts on each of these days. So, the exam will be carried out in four shifts.
  • Experts feel like it is practically not possible for preparing four sets of paper for the four shifts containing various questions with the same level of difficulty. Even many students agree that there would be the difference between the difficulty of questions in different sets.
  • This would be unfair to those aspirants who were to have appeared for the test on May 25. They would tend to score lesser marks as compared to those going to appear on May 26.
  • All the appearing aspirants will be divided into four groups evenly, to appear in the exam according to these four shifts. The rationale behind this judgment is to avoid the chaos of students considering the huge number of participants and limited examination centers.

About 100 more seats for the MBBS course have been added this year. This has been made possible with the addition of two new AIIMS at Guntur and Nagpur, from the academic year 2018-2019

Each of these two new AIIMS will have 50 new seats for the MBBS course. The addition of the 100 new seats at these two new AIIMS will make the total count of seats as 800, from the earlier 700.

In AIIMS MBBS 2017, 3,64,242 aspirants registered for the test, and 2,84,737 of those appeared in it for just 700 seats at 7 AIIMS across the country.

Additionally, unlike NEET and other medical entrances, the AIIMS MBBS 2018 examination organizing committee is not going to issue any official response keys for students to validate their responses and predict their expected scores. Also, the appearing aspirants will not be able to file an objection or claim a challenge to the official responses to the examination questions.

So, despite being for India’s top medical institutions, aspirants feel the procedure of the AIIMS MBBS exam less transparent than NEET and others. The AIIMS MBBS 2018 exam will also cover 20 questions from the General Knowledge and Reasoning sections (10 questions each).

This would help in the selection of talented students with smart brains. Apart from those many clarifications, the organizing committee of the exam has not confirmed information about few topics.

Exam committee will not share the tie-breaking mode to be followed for AIIMS MBBS 2018. Tie-breaking is generally used to evaluate ranks, in case two or more students score equal marks in the AIIMS MBBS 2018 exam.

Then the board of syllabus of the exam is also not shared by the organizing committee. Experts say that the result of this entrance and ranking will totally depend on the board of the syllabus from which the questions will be covered.

The questions at this point may be covered by the 11th and 12th class syllabus of the CBSE, ICSE or state boards. NEET, however, covers the questions mainly from the CBSE syllabus.

When students were asked, they shared their thoughts that presently, the nature of AIIMS MBBS questions is very ambiguous. They are taken up from anywhere. This entrance should also be streamlined and systemized like NEET.

The questions asked should be to the point, covered from the defined syllabus, extensive and based on simplified format. After all, the entrance is about picking up the top 800 students from the country to transform them into the world-class doctors.
