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: Since the examination will be held in two shifts and a Normalization Procedure will be used. 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 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.


Age: Should have attained or will attain the age of 17 (seventeen) year as on the 31st of December of the year of taking the exam.
