The National Board of Examination (NBE) will conduct the All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) for 2014 in 38 cities between November 25 and December 6. It will be held online at 70 Prometric Test Centres.
The decision was announced on Wednesday following the Supreme Court’s approval of engagement of the NBE for the job and the schedule for the examination.
The NBE will conduct the examination for admission to the all-India 50 per cent quota in MD/MS/PG diploma courses offered in government colleges/ institutions, except in Andhra Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.
The governments of Haryana, Punjab and Chhattisgarh and the University of Delhi will utilise AIPGMEE results for admissions to these courses in colleges under their control.
These States will not conduct any state entrance examination of their own. Admission to institutions under the Armed Forces Medical Services will also be made on the basis of AIPGMEE results.
According to NBE Executive Director Bipin Batra, the duration of the examination will be three hours and 30 minutes. In addition, 15 minutes of test tutorial time will be given. The test will comprise 300 multiple choice questions covering different subjects in the MBBS curriculum. There will be no negative marking.
