Around 3 lakh candidates are appearing for the AIIMS MBBS 2018 entrance. This is the first time that AIIMS MBBS is being conducted across a total of four sessions on two consecutive days. The morning slot is conducted between 9.00 AM to 12.30 PM and the evening session is conducted between 3.00 PM to 6.30 PM. The exam is being held in approximately 155 centres in the country.

Candidates successfully clearing the exam will be eligible for admissions to a total of 800 MBBS seats offered by the various AIIMS campuses around India. The AIIMS New Delhi, Bhopal, Patna, Jodhpur, Rishikesh, Raipur and Bhubaneswar campuses will be offering admissions to 100 seats each while the newly introduced AIIMS campuses at Guntur and Nagpur will offer admissions to 50 seats each.

Arguably India’s most competitive undergraduate medical entrance exam, AIIMS MBBS comprises 200 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) from four different subjects. 60 questions each were asked from the three main subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology. 20 questions in each section were reason-assertion based while the remaining were objective-type. AIIMS MBBS also comprises 20 questions from General Knowledge and Aptitude & Logical Reasoning as well. Candidates are awarded one mark for every right answer while one-third marks are deducted for each wrong one.

Reactions and Analysis

As per the reactions received from the AIIMS 2018 MBBS candidates who attempted the morning and evening sessions on May 26, the paper was on the whole easier compared to previous years. True to form, Physics proved to be the lengthiest and most difficult section of the paper for most candidates while Biology proved to be the easiest with Botany and Zoology questions being asked in equal measure. The Chemistry section was moderate.

“I found the paper to be less difficult than last year. Biology was the easiest section with all the questions coming from NCERT. Surpisingly, there were only five General Knowledge questions while the remaining 15 came from Aptitude and Logical Reasoning. Chemistry comprised primarily of questions from Organic. Physics proved to be the toughest,” said Aryan, a candidate who appeared in the morning session.

In his analysis of the exam, Brijesh Maheswari, the Director of Allen Career Institute, said, “On the basis of students’ feedback, the paper was average. The questions from physics were confusing, and students got difficulty to solve the same. Apart from this, biology and chemistry were normal”.

The result of AIIMS MBBS 2018 will be declared on June 18. Candidates appearing for the exam on May 27 are advised to carefully go through the AIIMS MBBS advisory issued on May 19. As per the advisory, candidates should make sure they appear for the exam carrying only their AIIMS MBBS admit card, one recent passport sized photograph and a valid Government photo identity proof. A number of students who tried to appear for the exam without carrying their ID proof were denied entry into the exam centre.
