I am Upashana and it was my first attempt. Physics was difficult, Bio was half difficult and half moderate, and Chemistry easy. Physics had a nuber of questions from circuit theory and semi conductor. Chemistry had half questions from organic, and Biology had questions from plant and animal kingdom. Overall paper was moderate

Hi, I am Puja Dubey. This was my second attempt. The paper was not very difficult, especially Biology and Chemistry were pretty easy. Physics was however very difficult, especially questions related yo numericals. Assertion reasoning wasn't very difficult. A majority of questions were from modern physics. In Chemistry, more questions were from organic and physical section, compared to inorganic. Biology overall had most questions from NCERT. Also, I feel a few questions related to genetics were from outside the syllabus. I did coachingfrom Horizon Academy.

Hi, my name is Shiv Chaudhary. I am doing coaching from Allen Kota. I found the paper to be moderate. Physica was hard, but Bio was easy while chemistry was moderate. In comparision to NEET also, Physics questions were much tougher. I found that all topics were covered in physics, and there was no extra weightage given to any topic. AR being my weakness, I found questions related to AR difficult. During NEET, my strength was Pysics, but here Biology saved me!

I am Raman Chauhan. The overall difficulty level was moderate. Physics was the most difficult section; this section had quite a few questions from alternating current. Biology, I think all the topics were equally covered. In Chemistry, organic was a little difficult. Even though I precisely which questions, I felt quite a few were out of syllabus. I have taken coaching from Aakash Delhi.

Hello, I am Shweta Srivastav. The AIIMS MBBS paper is always difficult, especially due to Physics. I think Physics had the maxium questions from Mechanics. In Chemistry, majority questions were from inorganic. Overall the difficulty level was moderate.

Physics – The Physics section was the toughest for almost all candidates. Quite a few students used the screen calculator in some of the questions. Many questions required the use of logic and some creative questions were asked which consumed time. Students who had prepared through conceptual study did not face many problems and found the Assertion Reason questions to be relatively easy.

Biology – The Biology section was the easiest for almost all candidates with questions coming primarily from the NCERT. Some questions also involved diagrams. An equal number of Botany and Zoology questions were asked and very few questions were confusing.

Chemistry – The Chemistry section was considered to be moderate. Many candidates however complained about the confusing language used in some of the questions which made it diffcult to know what logic could be applied. The questions were mainly from NCERT texts. The Assertion Reason questions were not difficult or time-confusing.

Aptitude & Logical Reasoning and General Knowledge - The questions in this section primarily revolved around current affairs, logical reasoning and riddles. The GK questions included name of Lok Sabha Speaker, meaning IMEI number and Mobile Signal Recognition. No questions from history were asked.

AIIMS MBBS 2018 Exam Analysis for May 27

With 2018 being the first time that AIIMS MBBS was held on a second day, candidates were unsure about what to expect from the question paper and how different it would be from the morning and evening shifts on the first day. As per the initial reports, the overall pattern of the paper was the same, with Physics proving to be difficult and Biology easiest. The topics from which questions were asked in the second day shifts varied considerably from the first day. For example, while the first day Chemistry questions comprised many from Organic chemistry, the second day had more from Physical chemistry.

Expected Cutoffs in AIIMS MBBS 2018

AIIMS MBBS 2018 is considered to be a lot more competitive as compared to NEET and JIPMER MBBS, by students and experts alike. This is mainly because around 3 lakh candidates are competing for only 800 MBBS seats on offer in nine AIIMS institutions.

In order to qualify for admission, candidates must pass AIIMS MBBS 2018 with at least 50% marks (45% for OBC and 40% for SC/ST).

As per the students who cleared AIIMS MBBS entrance last year and experts’ opinion, a score of above 150 in AIIMS can give aspirants a solid ground to secure a seat in AIIMS. It should be noted that the number of seats on offer through AIIMS MBBS has increased this year and this might lead to a lowering of required cutoffs.

Since AIIMS MBBS never discloses the marks obtained by the qualifying students, the only point of reference is to see the available percentiles. However, most experts and former toppers agree that a score of 150 plus can lead to a rank within the top 100 and increase chances for admissions.

For AIIMS MBBS 2018, the following mark ranges can be considered sufficient for admissions -


Expected Cut off marks

General Candidates

150+ out of 200


130+ out of 200


115+ out of 200


105+ out of 200

A total of 4905 candidates cleared AIIMS MBBS 2017 and were selected for admissions out of the around 2 lakh candidates who appeared. The qualifying percentile for the General Category last year was 99.0014978, for OBC it was 97.4205359 and for SC/ST it was 94.1220114.

Cut off ranks from AIIMS MBBS 2017

While AIIMS New Delhi doesn’t release the marks of the candidates with the results, it releases their subject-wise and overall percentile scores along with All India Ranks (AIR). Given below are the last year closing ranks for AIIMS MBBS exam, which were sufficient for admissions in various AIIMS Institutions -

AIIMS 2019, like the preceding versions of the exam, will also use a normalization procedure to determine cut-off corresponding percentiles taking both the morning and evening slots across the days days into account. As per officials, if the percentiles for all four shifts turn out to be unequal, then the lower of the four will be the eligible category-wise cut-off. The Merit List for AIIMS MBBS 2019 will be prepared by the examination authority AIIMS New Delhi as per the marks secured by candidates in their respective categories in the exam. Only those candidates who clear the category wise cut offs will be eligible for a place in the AIIMS MBBS Merit List.

Physical Chemistry by OP Tandon

ABC of Chemistry for Classes 11 and 12 by Modern

Concise Inorganic Chemistry by JD Lee

Dinesh Chemistry Guide

Practise books by VK Jaiswal, MS Chauhan and N Awasthi

Biology Best Books:

NCERT Biology Class XI and Class XII textbooks

Biology Vol 1 and Vol 2 by Trueman

Objective Biology by Dinesh

Objective Botany by Ansari

Pradeep Guide on Biology

how will they select the students for aiims and jipmer colleges based on neet exam sir/madam????

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 13th Oct, 2019

Dear Dhana, As NTA hasn't released any official notification regarding this, everything at this point in time is considered speculative. No answer can be definite and considered final. But there are few theories based on how NTA conducts JEE Mains and JEE Advanced, This is my assumption. NTA, AIIMS and JIPMER have different aggregate requisitions. One of the admisison processes might be:

  • Though Candidates have to follow NEET aggregate criteria, to be shortlisted for AIIMS and JIPMER merit list, Candidates have to score the AIIMS and JIPMER set aggregates. Only such candidates can apply based on their NEET score and AIIMS and JIPMER will release merit list based on these factors. This will happen through All India Counselling like Central/Deemed/AFMC admissions.
