AIPMT 2014 Exam Pattern Sample Papers Books

AIPMT 2014 Exam is going to be held on 4th May, 2014 instead of NEET 2014, as you can find in the previous blog post of mine titled: AIPMT 2014 Dates Announced - No More NEET 2014. What would be the format/exam pattern of AIPMT 2014 and how to prepare for the same? This is the subject matter of this blog post, which aims to provide you the prep materials for AIPMT 2014 Exam - it at first discusses about the pattern of AIPMT and than points you to the sources of sample papers & prep books that you can use to prepare for AIPMT 2014.

AIPMT 2014 Exam Pattern - Changes in the format compared to AIPMT 2012:
AIPMT 2014 would be quite different from the previous AIPMT (last AIPMT  was last held in 2012) in following respects:
1.0 It is going to be a single-stage entrance test unlike AIPMT  2012, which was held in two-stages (Prelims and Mains).
2.0 While there would be four papers (Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology) just like previous years, number of questions in each of the subject is 45 (thus totaling 180 questions). But in AIPMT 2012 Prelims, there were 50 questions in each subject (thus totaling 200 questions).
3.0 There was negative marking in AIPMT 2012 (minus 1 mark for each wrong answer). However, there may not be negative marking in AIPMT 2014 ( as it is following NEET UG 2013 exam pattern). We would know about it exactly when the detailed notification-cum-information brochure for AIPMT 2014 comes out.

Thus as you can see above, the exam pattern of AIPMT 2014 would be quite like NEET 2013 and the exam format is summarized as below:
Total 180 questions to be answered in 3 hours: 45 questions each from Physics, Chemistry, Botany and Zoology.

Syllabus for AIPMT 2014 Exam:
I have posted an exclusive blog post titled: AIPMT 2014 Syllabus Download on this subject. You can also click here to download the AIPMT 2014 Syllabus in pdf format from MCI website.
AIPMT 2014 Exam Pattern
As you can see in the syllabus for AIPMT 2014, questions from both Class-XI & XII is asked. How many questions are going to be asked from which subjects just to have some idea. For this I recommend using following exam paper analysis by CareerPoint:
Download Question Paper Analysis AIPMT Mains 2011

As you can see from the table at right, almost 40% questions are asked from Class-XI in Physics & Chemistry with rest 60% from Class-XII. In Biology however, number of questions in  Class-XI & Class-XII is 50:50. So if you think that AIPMT will be based on Class-XII syllabus only, you are wrong. From the CareerPoint paper analysis given above, you can find more info - like weightage of individual chapters in each subject, difficulty analysis etc.
