  2. Candidates born on or after 2nd January, 2000 are NOT eligible to apply.



  1. Should have passed the 12thClass under the 10+2 Scheme/ Senior School Certificate Examination (CBSE) or Intermediate Science (I.Sc.) or an equivalent Examination of a recognized University/ Board of any Indian State with ENGLISH, PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY and BIOLOGY as subject.
  2. Candidates who have appeared or are appearing at the qualifying Examination with English, Physics, Chemistry and Biology as main subject and expect to pass the Examination with required percentage of marks (as indicated in Sl No. 03 below) are also eligible to apply and appear in the Competitive Entrance Examination. However, their candidature will be considered only if they provide documentary evidence of having passed the qualifying Examination with the required subjects and percentage of marks.
  3. If the Institute has to consider an Examination of an Indian University or of a foreign/university to be equivalent to the 12th class under 10+2  scheme/Intermediate Science Examination, the candidates shall have to produce a certificate from the concerned Indian University/Association of the Indian Universities to the effect that the examination passed by him/her is considered by them to be equivalent to the 12th class under 10+2 scheme/Intermediate .



  1. The minimum aggregate of the marks in ENGLISH, PHYSICS, CHEMISTRY and BIOLOGY obtained in the qualifying examination (as in the Essential Qualification at Sl. No. 2 of this table) required for appearing in this examination are :
  2. General and OBC candidates: 60% SC/ST/OPH Candidates: 50%


  1. Each correct response will get a score of 1 mark.
  2. Each incorrect response will get a score of - ? (minus-one-third).
  3. No credit will be given for the questions not answered or marked for review (Please see Annexure-5 on Online Examination)

  1. The score such obtained will be the Raw Score that will be used to determine Percentage score and percentile [for the purpose of Eligibility using Cut-Offs] and Normalization [for the purpose of determining Merit / Ranking].


  1. If any discrepancy in any question is found in the Entrance Examination, the candidate is advised to write to Sub-Dean (Exam.), AIIMS, New Delhi – 110 608 within 24 hours.

In accordance with decision of the Governing Body, AIIMS, New Delhi dated 26.11.2009 and the past practice adopted by AIIMS, New Delhi, the minimum cut-off necessary in the Entrance Examination to determine eligibility for admission is:

General Category



OBC (Non Creamy Layer) 








Cut-offs of the respective category

Since the examination will be held in two shifts and a Normalization Procedure will be used (see 8.8); the Percentile score corresponding to the above cut-offs will be used to determine eligibility. In the event of the percentiles for the two shifts being dissimilar / unequal, the lower of the two will be the eligibility cut-off for that category for all candidates (i.e. both shifts). 
For example if the 50% marks correspond to  a Percentile score of 90 in Shift 1 and to a Percentile score of 88 in shift 2 then all those equal to or above 88 Percentile (Percentile score of 100 to 88)in both shifts will become eligible in General Category. Similar method will be adopted for the other categories to determine eligibility cut-offs.
This year, since there would be two shifts, a Normalization Procedure is being adopted as decided by experts based on analysis of past MBBS Entrance Examinations conducted by AIIMS, New Delhi. This will be utilized to decide on the inter-se merit / ranking [used during Counseling for allotment of seats] between those who appeared for the examination. 
The normalization procedure that will be adopted is based on PERCENTILES. 
Percentile Scores 
Percentile scores are scores based on the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination.  Basically the marks obtained are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each group (shift) of examinees.
The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored EQUAL TO OR BELOW (same or lower raw scores) that particular Percentile in that examination. Therefore the topper (highest score) of each group (shift) will get the same Percentile of 100 which is desirable. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores are also converted to appropriate Percentiles.
The Percentile score is the Normalized Score for this examination. 
The Percentile Scores will be calculated to 7 decimal places to avoid bunching effect and therefore reduce ties. 
In this method of scoring the HIGHEST SCORE in each paper (irrespective of the raw scores / percentage obtained) will be the 100 Percentile indicating that 100% of candidates have scores equal to or lesser than the the highest scorer/ topper for that shift.  For example, in Shift 1 if the highest score is 80% and in Shift 2 the highest score is 82%, both scores would be normalized to 100 Percentile for their respective group / shift.
The lowest score would have a percentile depending on the total number of candidates who have taken the examination. Supposing 100000 students have taken the examination in  a Shift and the highest score (A) for that  group / shift is 160 / 200 (80%)  and the lowest score (B)  – 3/ 200 (-1.5%). If there is no other candidate who has scores equal to either A or B,  then the Percentile Score of A, the top scorer, shall be 100 [because all or 100% of candidates have scored EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN A]. The Percentile Score of B, the lowest scorer, shall be 0.001 since the percentage of candidates with scores EQUAL TO OR BELOW would be 0.001 [(1/100000)*100]. If another candidate (C) had  a raw score similar to that of A, then both A and C would have a Percentile Score of 100. Similarly if another candidate (D) had a raw score equal to that of B then both B and D would have a Percentile score of 0.002 [(2/100000)*100].  Ties would therefore have similar Percentiles.
The following is a further explanation of the interpretation of the scores in an examination with 100 candidates.

  1. If candidate A’s Percentile score is 100, it indicates that amongst those who have taken the examination, 100% have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS THAN the candidate A. It also indicates that no candidate has scored more that candidate A.
  2. If candidate B’s Percentile score is 90, it indicates that 90% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate B. It also indicates that remaining candidates have scored  more than candidate B.
  3. If candidate C’s Percentile score is 50, it indicates that 50% of the other candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate C. It also indicates that remaining half of those who took the examination have scored  more than candidate C.
  4. If candidate D’s Percentile  score is 30, it indicates that 30% of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate D. It also indicates that remaining have scored  more than candidate D.
  5. If candidate E’s Percentile score is 1, it indicates that none of the candidates who have taken the examination have scored either EQUAL TO OR LESS than candidate E. It also indicates that all remaining candidates who took the examination have scored  more than this candidate .


The overall merit / ranking shall be based on the Percentile scores of the Total Raw Scores.
The method adopted for breaking ties (similar Percentiles) shall be:

  1. Biology: Higher Percentile scores in Biology will result in higher ranking
  2. Chemistry: If Biology Percentiles do not break the tie, higher Percentile scores in Chemistry will result in higher ranking
  3. Physics: If Biology and  Chemistry Percentiles do not break the tie, higher Percentile scores in Physics will result in higher ranking

Age: If Biology, Chemistry, Physics Percentiles do not break the tie, the candidate elder by age will be ranked higher
