according to latest notifications, admission to MBBS courses and other health science related courses like bams, bhms, bvsc etc  in medical colleges across the india  including JIPMER and all the AIIMS will be through the common national entrance test NEET from 2020.

so neet is the only gate way to admission in medical colleges for health science related courses.


Is is true that there will be no more AIIMS and JIPMER examination next year 2020 and that they are merged together into one common exam?

how much should i want to score in class 12 2020 to get merit seat in aiims and i belongs to obc from tamilnadu

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 19th Nov, 2019

There are 2 things to it.

  1. Your 12th marks have no bearing in securing you a MBBS seat.

Your 12th score is useful only for you to be eligible for appearing for NEET. As a Candidate belonging to OBC Category, you should score a minimum aggregate of 40% in Physcis, Chemistry and Biology. Your 12th marks role ends there.

  1. There is no concept of merit seat in AIIMS

Now AIIMS MBBS and JIPMER MBBS have been scrapped in favour of NEET. Now NEET will remain the sole entrance examination for admission to MBBS colleges across India. Adding on that, AIIMS releases its score in the form of percentiles and NEET releases the score in the form of marks. In 2019, the cut off for OBC for AIIMS was 95.29 percentile. It is approximately 684. And cut offs change every year depending on various factors such as no.of Candidates appearing for the exams, no.of Candidates qualified, top NEET score and difficulty of the exam. So if you want to get into AIIMS, your target should be nothing less than 700.
