Though, coaching institutes like Resonance, Aakash, Allen Kota, Career Point, Roa IIT Academy and Brilliant Study Centre have raised doubts over these questions, the final decision on these doubtful questions will, however, be taken by Central Board of secondary Education (CBSE), which is scheduled to release AIPMT 2016 official answer key soon.

Careers360 brings you snapshots of questions having wrong answer options from Set A.
Further, experts also suggested that a few questions had more than one correct answer options which confused candidates during the AIPMT 2016/NEET Phase 1 exam. For example, according to the answer keys by Aakash, Resonance, Career Point and Brilliant Study Centre, question number 51 and 53 of booklet code ‘A/P/W’ had more than one correct responses. Besides this, Aakash and Roa IIT Academy had pointed out that question number 64 and 74 of the same code had multiple answer options.
Questions having multiple correct responses in AIPMT 2016:
51, 53 and 64
51 and 53
Last year, CBSE had awarded 12 bonus marks to JEE Main test takers for wrong questions in the entrance exam. Likewise, CBSE may award 8 bonus marks for the two questions with incorrect answer options or may calculate examinees’ marks excluding these two questions. In that case, CBSE will calculate candidates’ marks out of a total of 712 instead of 720. We bring two possibilities here.
In case 1, if CBSE official answer key reflects these same questions with incorrect answer options, then AIPMT 2016 examinees stand a chance to get 8 bonus marks for the two questions with wrong answer options.
In case 2, CBSE may calculate the total marks for AIPMT 2016 barring/excluding question number 71 and 98 of Set A. In this case, the total number of marks will be calculated out of a total of 712 instead of total 720 marks. Each question of AIPMT carries 4 marks for correct answer, while each incorrect answer, the exam conducting authority deducts 1 mark.
