One of our loyal users (Mohd. Javed) alerted us that there is a mistake in AIPMT 2012 application form. What is the mistake? Any guesses..
The mistake is in the Year of Passing /Appearing Class XII field. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is the responsible body which conducts AIPMT and also AIEEE. This year AIEEE application forms are available only through online mode; CBSE is following the same path for AIPMT 2012. The application forms for AIPMT 2012 too are available only online.
All is well so far; the problem came when the technical department ignorantly cut, copied & pasted some portion of AIEEE 2012 application form. Accordingly ‘Year of Passing /Appearing Class XII field’ has only three values (2010, 2011 & 2012) which has been borrowed from AIEEE 2012 form. The case has to be different for AIPMT, students are hoping for correction from CBSE soon.
You can compare the two forms
1) AIPMT 2012 form: http://aipmt.nic.in/aipmt/online/ApplicationForm.aspx
2) AIEEE 2012 form: http://aieee.nic.in/aieee2012/aieee/online/ApplicationForm.aspx
CBSE is likely to rectify this soon, as of now students who passed XII Std. in 2010, 2011 or 2012 can only apply. But the eligibility rules state differently the max. age limit is mentioned as 25 years for general category. The year of passing for class XII is expected to be lowered further.
What is your opinion?
