AIPMT 2012 notification has been announced; the prelim test will be held on 1st April, 2012 (Sunday) and the main test will be held on 13th May, 2012 (Sunday).
The eligibility conditions, centre cities, syllabus, pattern, etc. will remain the similar to AIPMT 2011 Examination for which the information is already available on website www.aipmt.nic.in.
The schedule for the submission of application forms would be shortly communicated.
The All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) is conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), Delhi for admission to MBBS and BDS courses in several medical colleges around the country. Presently, 15% of the total seats in all medical and dental colleges run by the Union of India, state governments, municipal, or other local authorities in India, except in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, are reserved for candidates who qualify this examination.
The All India Pre-Medical Test for undergraduate medical courses has been in question this year with MCI announcing about NEET UG (National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for undergraduate courses); aspiring medical students from different parts of India were in a state of confusion on whether to prepare for the state level entrance test or to concentrate on NEET UG.
The syllabus varied for both of these tests; several states including Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamilnadu, Jammu & Kashmir, West Bengal, Madhya Pradesh etc argued that there is variation in the syllabus and question on vernacular language issue and the timing of announcement. Few of these states were granted exception from NEET UG next year.
Earlier health ministry had written to supreme court to defer NEET UG by a year;
the apex court had nodded for the written petition and granted a one year stay on NEET UG. Accordingly CBSE has given a press release on AIPMT 2012 and stated that NEET UG is not taking place next year.
Correction: With due apologies I am correcting the above statement; supreme court has only referred it for further hearing in January 2012. Thanks for Rajeev for correcting me
Update: AIPMT 2012 application forms are available online, please read this post.
