Things to know about the All India Pre Medical Entrance Exams

The All India Pre Medical / Pre Dental Entrance Test in short AIPMT is all set to replace the National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) in 2016 for the admission to the undergraduate courses MBBS and BDS in the medical and dental colleges all over India. The decision was taken by the honorable Supreme Court as a response to the various issues arising in the admission of the students to medical colleges in the country.

Admission to the medical and dental colleges based on the AIPMT rank

The pre medical exam, which is conducted by Central Board of Secondary Examination (CBSE), will let you compete for the 15% of the total seats in the medical colleges in India except those in the state of Andhra Pradesh. So, basically you have to compete for almost 2100 seats in 130 medical and 30 dental colleges. Anyways, there is a fair chance if you are getting ranks within 3000 as you can take admission in the various medical colleges across the country by being among the toppers in the exam.

The colleges where you can take admission on the basis of the rank

The pre medical entrance exam will be conducted in 2016 only for the national quota of 15% of the total seats in all the government colleges in India except the ones in Andhra Pradesh. Apart from that, you can also take admission in the colleges who will voluntarily participate in the entrance exam like AFMC, BHU, etc. Apart from these, you can expect your admission to the other medical or dental colleges which admit the toppers from the pre medical entrance exam.

The similarities of AIPMT 2016 with NEET

The pre medical entrance exam which will replace the NEET in 2016 has a lot of similarities with the latter. Firstly, the pre medical exam will be conducted by CBSE which used to conduct the NEET. Then, the question pattern will also be same as NEET. The questions will come from Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology like NEET. The numbers of questions will also be same and along with that, the pattern will also be Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ). It will also have a single paper system like NEET instead of the 2 paper system.
