Showing 75206 out of 75207 Questions

will aiims proceed their counseling according to neet scores ?or their are high possibility that they will prepare their own merit list 1st i.e retain their individual aggregates? or take a separate test for AR & gk

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 16th Oct, 2019

Dear Akash, as of now, everything is speculative. Until NTA or AIIMS release any official notification regarding this, nothing is definitive. But there are 2 possibilities that might happen. AIIMS might prepare its own merit list based on its own eligibility criteria like AFMC and other Institutions and DGHS might conduct the admissions because AIIMS doesn't belong to any particular State. AFMC conducts a TOELR test, psychometric test and a final interview before shortlisting its Candidates. AIIMS might follow this rule. Nothing is certain at this point in time. We need to wait to hear from the concerned authorities.
