Ultimate guide to prepare for JIPMER

Ask a group of ten kids what they want to be when they grow up and half of them would probably say a doctor. There is no other profession, perhaps, that commands as much awe and respect as the medical profession. For aspiring Indian doctors, though, the path is paved with difficulty. In India, there is a huge competition to qualify for an MBBS seat as invariably there are more candidates than there are seats in medical colleges.

Scholarship Registration and Login

Admission to most medical colleges in India is through the NEET, or National Eligibility cum Entrance Test. However, few high profile institutions of national importance conduct their entrance tests as they were formed under a separate government of India act. One of these is Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, or JIPMER.

To help aspiring medical students prepare for the JIPMER entrance exam, we’ve compiled all the relevant information about the test, as well as some important tips for cracking it. Here’s the ultimate guide to prepare for JIPMER:


The Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education & Research (JIPMER) is a centrally funded autonomous medical school, located at Pondicherry, India. Categorized as an institute of national importance in 2008, the institute can trace its history back to 1823, when it was established by the French as Ecole de Médicine de Pondichéry. It is both a working hospital providing inexpensive medical care to a large number of patients, and a residential medical institution with its own campus spread over 195 acres.

JIPMER All-India Entrance Examination

Candidates to the courses offered at JIPMER are selected based on an entrance examination, conducted once a year for undergraduates courses. A total of 200 seats are open for candidates, 150 at the Pondicherry centre, while another 50 at the newly established Karaikal campus.

Tips to Remember  

Study Schedule: It is very important to make a strategy to ensure you cover the entire syllabus within stipulated time. The best way to go about this is to make a proper study timetable or schedule. A systematic timetable helps you study uniformly and regularly. Divide your time as per the level of difficulty in particular subjects and do not forget to follow the schedule strictly and on a regular basis.

Study Resources: As any former topper would tell you, the best resource for your entrance exam is your NCERT textbook. The NCERT books would not only help you in clearing your basics and cover the entire syllabus, but in fact, 80-90% of the questions come directly from the NCERT books.

Mock Tests and Previous Papers: The Official JIPMER website is a great resource to access mock tests and get a feel of the real thing. You should also attempt previous years’ papers to realize your strong and weak areas and strategize accordingly.

Stay Confident: The key to a great performance in your test is the ability to stay confident. Your measure of confidence is also inversely proportional to your stress levels. Sleep well a day before the exam and don’t overthink it.
