The All India Pre Medical Test (AIPMT) is a yearly college entrance examination in India. The exam 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 pass this examination.Since 2014, the examination has been modified.

Exam Pattern
Starting from 2014, the exam is conducted in a single stage which generally takes place on the first Sunday of May. The examination consists of one paper containing 180 objective type questions from Physics,Chemistry and Biology (Botany & Zoology). Candidates belonging to Jammu Kashmir and Andhra Pradesh are eligible for this examination at this time but can seek admission only to the Armed Forces Medical College, Pune through it.

Each item carries 4 marks. For each incorrect response, one mark is deducted from the total score. However, no deduction from the total score is made if no response is indicated for an item. Indication of more than one answer for a question is deemed an incorrect response and negatively marked.candidates having marks up to 520/720 can reasonably hope for selection.
