AIIMS PG 2018 Cut-off Scores

According to the rules, candidate should secure a minimum of 50 Percentile to be eligible for the admission. A candidate getting 50 percentile marks means that he/she has got more marks than 50 percentage of candidates who have written the exam also we can interpret it like, 50 percentage of candidates who have taken the exam are above him/her. Those entire candidates below 50 percentile will be eliminated from the selection process.

AIIMS PG 2018 Percentile Scores

Percentile score shows percentage of candidates who are equal to or below a particular percentile in the examination. Highest score is converted to 100.

  • If candidate C has got 50 percentile, which means that 50% of the students who have written the examination secured equal or less than the mark secured by C. It also means that there are 50% of students have secured more marks than the marks secured by C.
  • If candidate D has got 30 percentile, which means that 30% of the students who have written the examination secured equal or less than the mark secured by D. It also means that there are 70% of students have secured more marks than the marks secured by D.
  • If candidate E has got 10 percentile, which means that 10% of the students who have written the examination secured equal or less than the mark secured by E. It also means that there are 90% of students have secured more marks than the marks secured by E.
