AIIMS MBBS Physics Section

Last Updated - March 03, 2017

AIIMS (All Indian Institute of Medical Sciences) conducts computer-based test (CBT) every year. The AIIMS MBBS 2017 will be conducted on May 27, 2017 for admission to the MBBS course in different institutes of AIIMS. The test is of 3 hours 30 minutes and will contain 200 multiple choice objective type questions. The questions are divided into 4 sections viz. Chemistry, Biology, Physics and General awareness.

1 mark is awarded for each correct answer and 1/3rd marks are deducted for each wrong answer. This test covers the syllabus of class 11th/12th as prescribed by NCERT.

AIIMS MBBS Physics Paper Weightage

The AIIMS Medical Entrance Exam will consist of 4 sections and except General Knowledge section each section will contain 60 questions based on the respective subject. Candidates generally assume Physics as the toughest section of the paper, but if this section is prepared well with the strong concept it gets very easy to solve the questions. Out of 200 marks, Physics alone holds 60 marks and hence, it is important to prepare it very attentively. The weightage of marks in AIIMS MBBS is tabulated below.

AIIMS MBBS Preparation Tips

Aspirants are suggested to keep the following tips in mind while preparing for AIIMS MBBS entrance examination.

  • First, analyze the syllabus thoroughly and mark the most important topics out of it.
  • Start from the difficult one and practice daily.
  • Give proper attention to diagrams, numerical, formulae, and laws & principles.
  • Practice mock test paper regularly, as it will give the idea about the pattern of question paper and type of questions.
  • Make a note of all the important formulae, so that it will help eventually while appearing for the examination.
  • Avoid to start preparing any new topic a month before the commencement of the examination.
  • Keep the last month for revision, do not skip the revision part of the preparation routine.
