While releasing the AIPMT 2014 answer keys, different coaching institutes marked the two questions in each of the code as wrong questions. According to such coaching institutes, all the candidates will be awarded grace marks irrespective of their response to the questions.  The AIPMT 2014 paper carried a total of 180 question divided in three sections –Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Zoology and Botany). Each correct answer carried 4 marks and a wrong answer invites one negative mark during the evaluation of the paper, CBSE had said.

For any doubts and queries related to the exam pattern, preparation and other related queries, students can call the AIPMT 2014 Exam Helpline at 011-40360360

Coaching expert C Shekhar said, “In one of the questions, compounds of four molecules were given and students were asked to find the compound of the molecule. The option given was wrong because all options had the choice of two molecules together. The second question was wrong since none of the option had the structure that could prove to be the right option for the given question.”

According to different experts, the following 2 questions in different sets of question paper were wrong. Both the questions having wrong options were from Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. You can check the sequence of question number having wrong option in P, Q, R & S set from the table below:

Will CBSE award grace marks?

Despite various experts and exam takers confirming the wrong questions, CBSE is yet to officially announce its stand on the same. Though, experts have advocated for 8 marks grace for all who appeared for the exam, candidates are yet awaiting an official confirmation on the same.

The grace marks are, however, are unlikely to affect the overall result and cut-off as an additional 8 marks to all candidates will neither make any impact on the merit list not on the cut-off for different medical institutes.

However, candidates cried foul as some of them said that they invested their valuable test time on solving a wrong question that finally proved to be wrong. Vineet kumar, who took AIPMT 2014 at a Delhi Centre on May 4 said, “After I find that those two questions were wrong, I feel those candidates who did not attempt those 2 questions and instead solved the other questions would be taking edge over me.” He rued, this is unfortunate and I am afraid that despite performing well, attempting the wrong question and putting my time on the same may push my overall relative performance down.

Vineet Jaglan who appeared for AIPMT 2014 from Panipat said that CBSE must officially announce the grace marks to be awarded for the wrong questions and also release the provisional answer key prior to release of images of OMR Answer Sheets, which will be displayed for any days from May 25 to May 31, 2014.

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

To be honest I think you will be very much aware of the fact that from this year onwards Neet JIPMER and AIIMS will be conducted in one exam. So predicting it will be a little tricky but yes anything above 650 will provide you a good chance for sure.

Hope you get it.

Good luck

Hello there!
Greetings!
No , Neet has not become difficult as its pattern is still the same , it will still wave 180 mcqs , 90 from biology, 45 from Physics and 45 from Chemistry . Also , if its  pattern is changed, NTA will notify about this in advance but chances for change in pattern is very low. And , yes now admission in all the medical colleges of India including all the aiims and Jipmer will be based on the marks scored in neet , so , you need to prepare well for it.

You don't need to panic if you are 16 years now i.e. in October 2019, as to be eligible for Neet 2020 on needs to be at least 17 years by 31st December 2020, so now if in October 2019 you are 16 year old then in October 2020 , you will be 17 years old and thus you are eligible for neet 2020. But in case if you don't turn 17 years old by 31st December 2020 then you are not eligible for neet 2020.
