my aggregate of mbbs is 54.89 im not able to give aiims pg exam.. what should i do to improve my aggregate now in order to appear for aiims??

Shareef 23rd Jan, 2020


If you belong to General/OBC Category, then you should score aggregate of 55% in MBBS. But if you belong to SC/ST Category, then it is only 50% that is required. If you completed your MBBS, then you cannot do anything about your aggregate now because you already completed the course. But if you are in the last year, you can try to improve the aggregate by scoring good marks in the final year subjects. Now it is too late and you can do nothing about it. Other than AIIMS PG, there is also NEET PG and PGIMER. You can try those. I know that AIIMS is a top institution but they do not offer any relaxations in qualifications.
