AIIMS New Delhi, the exam conducting body, of AIIMS will detail the AIIMS MBBS Cutoff. AIIMS New Delhi would be processing admissions for 807 seats across 9 AIIMS Campuses. This is inclusive of 2 new AIIMS Campuses in Nagpur and Guntur. Candidates should note that securing the specified AIIMS Cutoff would help them qualify but cannot guarantee a place in the merit list. For the same, the candidates would have to ensure that they have a separate merit cutoff to determine candidates eligible for counseling. 

Only the candidates who score equal or more than AIIMS MBBS Qualification Cutoff in terms of percentage of marks, the merit cutoff in terms of the percentile would become eligible for AIIMS Counseling.

Qualification Percentile of AIIMS MBBS

AIIMS MBBS 2018 will be held in two shifts, specifically, morning and afternoon shifts, over two days and question papers are required to be utilized for each of the four shifts. The percentile scores corresponding to the percentage cutoff specified in the above table will be utilized to decide qualification. To level the differences which may emerge because of variables, for example, difficulty levels of every one of the four question papers, number of candidates showing up in each shift and so forth, a normalized system will be utilized to decide the right AIIMS MBBS 2018 cutoff percentile in the light of which candidates will be declared qualified in the exam and later on, be eligible for AIIMS Counseling.

Normalization technique will be brought into effect when the percentile equivalent for AIIMS MBBS cutoff 2018 rate for every one of the four shifts turns out to appear as something else. In such a case, the lower of the four percentiles acquired from both the shifts is probably going to be pronounced as the final cutoff of AIIMS MBBS 2018 over each of the four shifts.

For example, if over the four shifts, Unreserved candidates qualify AIIMS MBBS exam in the 80th percentile, 82nd percentile, 90th percentile and 95th percentile separately by acquiring at least half AIIMS MBBS 2018 cutoff, at that point because of distinction in percentiles from the four shifts, standardization method will be utilized and 80th percentile will turn into the cutoff percentile of AIIMS MBBS 2018.

This strategy for deciding cutoff of AIIMS MBBS guarantees that elements, for example, exam difficulty level, number of candidates, preparedness of test takers, and so forth are thought about while deciding AIIMS MBBS cutoff criteria.
