All 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.


Experts, however, say that, though Physics and Chemistry were difficult, AIIMS MBBS 2016 was easier compared to the previous year’s paper. “Overall AIIMS MBBS 2016 exam paper was of difficult level. Majority of questions were reason and assertion based so students took time to derive the answer. The question from Biology and general Knowledge topic was easy as compared to Physics and Chemistry,” says C.Shekhar, Director, Pathshala, a coaching institute in Patna.


AIIMS MBBS 2016 was conducted in two shifts-morning and evening-and a normalisation procedure will be used to determine a percentile corresponding to cut-offs. According to officials, if the percentiles for the two shifts are unequal, the lower of the two will be the eligible cut-off of that category for all candidates.


The examination authority AIIMS will prepare the merit list of candidates as per the marks scored by them in the entrance exam. Only those candidates who score qualifying percentile in the entrance test will be placed in merit list. General category candidates have to score 50 percentile to pass the entrance exam while the passing marks for OBC category is 40 percentile. Only those candidates who score requisite AIIMS MBBS 2016 cut off as per their respective category will be placed in merit list.

Cutoffs of neet 2019 of delhi aiims?

Ashish pal Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

Hello dear aspirant.

To be honest I think you will be very much aware of the fact that from this year onwards Neet JIPMER and AIIMS will be conducted in one exam. So predicting it will be a little tricky but yes anything above 650 will provide you a good chance for sure.

Hope you get it.

Good luck


Is neet 2020 becomes difficult..?? As aiims and jipmer colleges given on the basis of neet scores.. Plz reply me

Aditya kumar Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019
Hello there!
No , Neet has not become difficult as its pattern is still the same , it will still wave 180 mcqs , 90 from biology, 45 from Physics and 45 from Chemistry . Also , if its  pattern is changed, NTA will notify about this in advance but chances for change in pattern is very low. And , yes now admission in all the medical colleges of India including all the aiims and Jipmer will be based on the marks scored in neet , so , you need to prepare well for it.


Is aiims and jipmer exams are completely cancelled ??

Papeya Dubey Student Expert 21st Oct, 2019

From 2020 onwards, there shall be only one entrance exam for MBBS and that's NEET.

AIIMS and JIPMER, no longer will conduct their entrance exam.

So, from 2020-2021 session, NEET is to be the only entrance exam to be conducted for admission to MBBS course.

is aiims and jipmer cancelled?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 20th Oct, 2019

Hello there!


Aiims ug and jipmer ug have been included in neet so there will be no separate aiims ug and jipmer ug from 2020 onwards,  there's  only one exam for medical aspirants now and that is NEET , now neet is the single gate way to all the medical colleges of India including all the aiims and jipmer as well. So , you need to prepare for neet only.

Apoorva Student Expert 19th Oct, 2019

Hello dear student,

Yes maybe you want to give AIIMS entrance test but your student id as you know it's been cancelled not exactly cancel it is been merged with neet and now students appearing for medical examination they only have to study for one entrance test . And they will be judged on the basis of that entrance test means they will be judged on the marks they have obtained in the entrance test and they will get the medical college accordingly. So don't worry just prepare as you are preparing for Neet and that will help you . I hope this was helpful to you
