AIIMS MBBS 2017 conductedThe AIIMS MBBS Entrance Exam 2017 was conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) New Delhi on May 28, 2017. AIIMS MBBS 2017 was a Computer Based Test (CBT) conducted in two sessions, morning and forenoon. All candidates aspiring for admissions to one of the 707 seats offered in the seven AIIMS institutions across the country, namely in New Delhi, Bhopal, Patna, Jodhpur, Rishikesh, Raipur and Bhubaneswar, were required to appear in one of these slots as allotted to them. The duration of the exam was for 3 hours and 30 minutes, with the morning slot being held between 9 am and 12.30 pm and the forenoon slot being held between 3 pm and 6.30 pm. The question paper was available in Hindi and English languages as per the candidate’s choice and the exam was held at more than 160 centres in different cities of India.

One of India’s most coveted and competitive undergraduate medical entrance exams, AIIMS MBBS regularly sees more than 1.5 lakh applicants each year. Candidates are required to be of 17 years of age or more while applying for the exam. The AIIMS 2017 MBBS Exam Pattern saw candidates being asked 200 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) from four different subjects. While there were 60 questions each from the three main subjects of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, AIIMS is also one of the few medical entrances which asks questions from General Knowledge as well, with 20 questions being asked under this section. One mark is awarded for every right answer while one-third marks are deducted for each wrong one.


As per the initial reactions received from candidates, AIIMS MBBS 2017 was harder in terms of overall difficulty as compared to AIIMS 2015 and AIIMS 2016. The toughest sections in AIIMS MBBS 2017 were in line with expectations from the previous years’ AIIMS papers, that of Physics and Chemistry. According to a candidate, Abnish Bhadoria, “Physics was 99% calculative and time consuming in comparison to the other sections. I think I can score 120 plus”.


Some students also took to social media to complain about technical problems caused in the morning slot paper. According to them, one question in Physics and another in Chemistry were not shown as the screen displayed a ‘Font Not Supported’ error.


The General Knowledge section remained the easiest in accordance with other AIIMS MBBS Entrance papers, with candidates expected to be thorough with recent major news events, especially about persons who created headlines off late and newly introduced Government schemes.


The AIIMS MBBS 2017 Result will be declared by AIIMS New Delhi on June 14. As per the AIIMS MBBS 2017 qualifying criteria, the Cut Off scores that General Category candidates will need to obtain to qualify for admissions will be 50% while for OBC candidates, it will be 45%. Given that the exam is held in two shifts, a normalization procedure will be used to determine the qualifying criteria through which the Cut Off will be determined based on the percentile scores obtained by candidates in each shift, with the overall lower score being taken for consideration for all candidates.


Earlier, on May 26, AIIMS New Delhi had issued a notification online in which it had listed down the exam day dos and dont’s for all candidates, advising them to relax and give their best. The notification reminded them that given the level of competition in the exam, not qualifying was not indicative of becoming ineligible for a career in medicine. The institute also requested for the full support and cooperation of all candidates and their parents to ensure the exam would be held smoothly. A strict dress code was mentioned with “hats, caps, scarfs, and similar headgear as well as goggles, thick-soled footwear and large metallic buttons prohibited”. Candidates were advised not to use the keyboard in the exam under any circumstances. A provision for a simple calculator on screen had also been made for candidates, as per the notification.

Hi Himanshu,
It actually depends more on percentile (relative performance) than absolute score in AIIMS. However, a score of 150+ puts you on the safe side.
Good luck to you!

All the questions are evaluated. 

The criteria for tie breaking depends on marks secured in individual subjects based on set order of priority.
