AIPMT 2016 — national level entrance exam conducted for admission to the top medical and dental colleges in the country is going to be held on 1st May, 2016. With about 20 days left for the exam, aspirants must be well aware about the exam pattern, syllabus and all the recent developments.

To ace the medical examination, one must also know about the previous years’ question paper and the overall verdict in terms of level of difficulty.

Last year AIPMT was held on 3rd May, here is the section-wise analysis of the question paper:


The difficulty level of this section was slightly higher than that in 2014. Questions that were directly taken from NCERT textbook were less; most of the questions involved more brainstorming.

The section was tough for students who only referred to NCERT books and did not practice a variety of questions along with applied concepts. The questions were taken from all the topics and therefore it can be labelled as a balanced section.

More than 50% of the questions were based on class XI syllabus.


The Physics section of AIPMT 2015 was difficult. 20 questions were from Class 12 syllabus and 25 questions from Class 11 syllabus. Overall 17 questions were difficult, another set of 17 questions were moderate and rest of the 11 questions were easy.

The questions were mostly formula based and had lengthy calculations.

NCERT could cover only the easy questions. But other supplementary books were needed for attempting medium & difficult questions.


The level of difficulty of questions in this section was standard. Students should follow books beyond NCERT as about 23 percent of the questions were out of NCERT books and were difficult.
