Duration and Exam Pattern

The duration of AIPMT Test will be 3 hours and will consist one paper with 180 objective type questions of 4 options (with single correct answer), from Physics, Chemistry and Biology (Botany & Zoology). The exam is pen and paper based offline exam.


The candidate seeking to take test should be an Indian national and achieved the age of 17 years at the time of admission. Upper limit of the age for the candidates seeking admission in 15% All India Quota is 25 years.

The candidate should have been passed 10+2 exam after 12 years of education, having Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Bio-technology in last 2 years and also have passed English in the qualifying exam, should have been secured an aggregate of 50% in Physics, Chemistry, Biology/Bio-technology together. For SC/ST/OBC candidates the aggregate of marks is 40% instead of 50% for general category. For physically handicapped candidates the aggregate of marks shall be 45% for General category and 40% for SC/ST/OBC categories.

The candidates who are appearing for the qualifying exam (12th standard) is also eligible for taking the test, however such candidate should produce marks sheet matching the required percentage of marks discussed above before the 1st counselling date.
