AIPMT 2014 to be held on May 4
New Delhi: The All India Pre-Medical Test or AIPMT 2014 has been scheduled on May 4, 2014 – less than six months away.
It is a national level entrance examination to screen candidates for admission to MBBS and BDS courses offered by several medical colleges across India. 15% of the total seats in all government medical and dental colleges across India (except in Andhra Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir) are reserved for AIPMT candidates.
Conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Delhi, AIPMT has been in ‘improvisation mode’ since 2010. Last year, CBSE conducted NEET-UG as a common entrance exam to screen medical aspirants, which was much on the pattern of JEE conducted to screen engineering aspirants. However, due to the orders of the Supreme Court, NEET-UG has been suspended. Hence, CBSE will conduct the medical entrance test it used earlier – AIPMT.
Latest AIPMT Exam Pattern
AIPMT 2014 will have four sections: Physics, Chemistry Botany and Zoology. Each section will have 45 objective-type questions. In all, there will be 180 in the exam. The total duration of the exam will be three hours.
