JIPMER MBBS 2018 - The Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER), Puducherry, has released the official JIPMER MBBS 2018 Prospectus and Application Form on March 7, 2018. JIPMER MBBS 2018 will be held on Sunday, June 3, 2018, and offer admissions to 150 MBBS seats at JIPMER Puducherry and 50 seats at JIPMER Karaikal. The exam will be conducted in an online mode, as a Computer Based Test (CBT). As per JIPMER Puducherry, it is yet to be confirmed whether the exam will be held in two shifts as usual or just one. According to the 2018 JIPMER MBBS prospectus, there is a chance that the exam will be conducted in only the morning shift depending upon the number of applicants, logistics and the final directions of the Madras High Court. This is a marked shift from the usual exam pattern as per which the entrance exam was conducted in a morning and an afternoon shift every year, similar to AIIMS MBBS. Among the three undergraduate medical entrance exams conducted in India, NEET has been the only one which has been usually conducted in a single shift on one exam day.

Apart from the possibility of a change in the exam shifts, certain other important changes have been introduced to JIPMER MBBS 2018 in terms of the eligibility criteria, application fees and number of exam cities.

  • Negative Marking Introduced:

A major change to the JIPMER MBBS Exam Pattern is the introduction of negative marking from this year. One mark will be deducted for every incorrect answer. Unattempted questions and those marked for review will not be given marks. 

  • Change in Tie Breaker Criteria:

The introduction of negative marking has also brought about a corresponding change in the tie-breaker criteria. Unlike last year, when the percentile obtained in Biology was used as the first step in breaking a tie, JIPMER MBBS 2018 will see candidates with lower negative marks get the first priority in the order of merit, followed by the usual order of alternatives.

  • Eligibility Criteria:

The eligibility criteria for JIPMER MBBS required all candidates to pass in the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Bio-technology and English individually in their Class 12 qualifying exam. Apart from this, General Category candidates were required to secure an aggregate of 50% across Physics, Chemistry and Biology/Bio-technology. For SC, ST and OBC candidates, the required percentage in PCB was 40% while for Differently abled/OPH candidates, it was 45%.

While there is no change in the subjects that candidates need to pass in, General Category candidates will now have to obtain an aggregate of 60% in PCB to be eligible for JIPMER MBBS 2018. For SC, ST and OBC candidates, the required percentage has been increased to 50%. Differently abled/OPH candidates will also be required to obtain 50% in their Class 12 PCB from this year onwards.

There is no change in the age criteria.

  • Seat Matrix and Reservation: With the introduction of the ‘Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016’, the horizontal reservation for Differently abled/OPH candidates has been increased to 5% from the previous 3%. Though the total number of seats offered by JIPMER Puducherry and JIPMER Karaikal stays at 200, there is a slight change in the seats available for each category. 

The new overall JIPMER MBBS seat matrix can be seen in the table below:

  • Increase in Exam Cities:

The number of exam cities has been increased to 120 from 75 last year. While JIPMER MBBS 2017 saw a zone-wise division of exam cities, this year’s JIPMER MBBS prospectus has revealed a state-wise division of exam cities keeping with the practices of AIIMS MBBS and NEET.

what is the date of CAT and jipmer exam application fill-up date and last date

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019

Hello,

CAT registration for 2019 started from 7th August and was opened till 25th September. So, it's concluded.

Secondly, you've tagged JIPMER MBBS, I'm presuming you want to know about its application dates. So, let me tell you now onwards there shall be only one entrance test for admission of MBBS and that is NEET. Earlier, AIIMS and JIPMER used to conduct their own entrance test which no longer will take place.

From 2020-2021 session onwards, NEET remains the sole entrance exam for admission for MBBS.
