AIIMS held its MBBS entrance exam of 2016 on Sunday, May 29th, 2016 for 672 MBBS seats in 7 AIIMS colleges across India. 154 centers were chosen to conduct the exam, with the exam being held in morning-evening shifts.
AIIMS MBBS exam has 200 questions in total. The subject wise question distribution is given below –
1 mark is awarded for every correct answer and 1/3rd mark is deducted for every incorrect answer.
Where AIIMS MBBS exam’s marking gets confusing is the normalization process they use. AIIMS uses a normalization procedure to determine a percentile in correspondence with Cut-offs.
If the percentile of the morning-evening shifts is not equal, the lower percentile will become the cut-off for that category.
For example, If 60% marks equal to a 87 percentile score in Shift 1 and the same 60% equals to 85 percentile in shift 2, then 85 percentile and above in general category will be placed on the merit list.
Similarly cut-offs and percentiles will be determined for all categories.
