AIIMS MBBS 2016 held on May 29 in two slotsAll India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi has conducted AIIMS MBBS 2016 entrance exam in the online mode on May 29, 2016. The exam was held in two slots across 154 exam centers in India. Most of the candidates found Physics and Chemistry to be tough compared to Biology and General Knowledge. Many students attributed the difficulty level of the exam to reason-assertion questions, where it becomes tricky to choose correct answer among the given options.

Prerna Singh who appeared in AIIMS MBBS 2016 from Delhi found the exam to be tough because most of the questions were based on reason-assertion. “Majority of questions were reason-assertion based which puzzled me while deriving answers. While questions from General Knowledge were easy because it was based on current affairs,” she said.
