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.
