JIPMER MBBS exam Pattern, Papers & Books
JIPMER MBBS Entrance exam 2013 is scheduled to be held on 2nd June, 2013 and this article is posted to help you by providing you the prep materials for the JIPMER exam - it intends to point you to the sample papers and prep books along with a discussion on JIPMER entrance exam pattern. This blog post follows my earlier article titled: JIPMER MBBS Entrance Exam 2013 Notification, Eligibility & Forms, which tells you how to apply for the exam.
JIPMER MBBS Entrance Exam Pattern/ Syllabus:
JIPMER MBBS entrance exam consists of a single paper of 200 marks to be answered in 2-1/2 hour (i.e. 150 minutes). There are 200 questions (each of 1 mark) from the subjects of English, Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology.
There is no negative marking - and hence if you do not know the answer of any question, do not leave behind it un-attempted - make guesses! JIPMER has not prescribed any specific syllabus for its MBBS entrance exam - as given in the notification, the standard of JIPMER question will conform to the syllabus for Class-XI & XII of CBSE/State Boards.
This pattern/structure of JIPMER MBBS entrance exam is also very similar to two other popular all India medical entrance exams - NEET-UG. (previously called as AIPMT) & AIIMS MBBS entrance exam. You can therefore use this detailed NEET-UG syllabus as a guiding syllabus for JIPMER MBBS entrance exam.
