NEET Syllabus 2012 UG Medical Exam to be conducted by MCI

Medical test row may trigger fresh State-Centre spat

Mehesh Trivedi

13 August 2011

Well, it would seem so if one goes by the swiftness with which the Gujarat administration has rejected the Medical Council of India’s (MCI) proposal to hold a common entrance examination for admission to medical colleges throughout the country.

Letters have just been dashed off to the MCI and Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, saying the MBBS course aspirants from the state would be at a great disadvantage if the proposed National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) became a reality from next year. Chances are, the arguments could trigger a fresh confrontation between Gujarat’s Bharatiya Janata Party regime and the Congress-led UPA government. Continue reading

AIEEE 2010 Question Paper, Answer n Cut-off

The AIEEE 2010 exam was held on 25 April 10 all across the country today. AIEEE 2010 was a 3 hour paper with 90 questions in total for 432 marks – 30 questions in each of the subjects. Each subject had 24 questions of 4 marks and 6 questions of 8 marks – hence 144 marks in total per subject. There were 4 choices in all questions.
The Maths section had assertion and reasoning type questions while the Physics section had two passages. The pattern was not different from AIEEE 2009 and was a pretty balanced paper. Most of the candidates found maths to be a tougher paper and physics a easy one to solve.
300 marks (out of 432 marks) could get a rank of 1000, 250 marks a rank of 5000 and with 215 marks one can get a rank of about 10000. 185 marks could get a rank of 20000.

AIEEE Exam- How to Crack it?

This post discusses few tips, tricks and ideas on how to breeze through AIEEE exam.

The AIEEE exam is conducted by CBSE for admissions to India’s premier national level institutes like NITs, IIITs (Indian Institute of Information Technology), DCE, PEC, many deemed universities, government funded institutions and technical colleges in the country. More than 1 million candidates appear for this exam and the exam is counted as the largest exam in the world held on a single day.

AIEEE 2011 Information Brochure

The AIEEE consists of two papers. Paper -1 (PCM) is administered to the candidates desirous of admissions to B.E/B.Tech stream and Paper 2 (Part I-Maths, Part II- Aptitude & Part III-Drawing) is administered to candidates for B Arch/B.Planning. The exam has objective type format with multiple choice questions. There is negative marking in the exam- for every wrong answer one fourth (1/4) of the mark allotted for that question is deducted. For left out questions, there is no negative marking. Marking more than one answer for a question is considered a wrong answer and negative marking is applied.

The exam is not tough at all and can be cracked with some discipline and hard work. The candidates scoring about 50% marks in the exam can expect to get a rank around 10000. In cricket terminology, if you can avoid follow-on in the exam (i.e. score say 226 out of 425), you are on the way to get a rank below 10000. Here are some tips and tricks to crack this exam and the rules can be generally applied to crack any engineering exam.

Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) Exams – How to Crack Them

This post is all about “How to Crack Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) Exam”. I am pleased to share with blog readers that today my article on the subject has been published  by, the best online article publisher directory.

“Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) exams with negative marking are the current trends for exams internationally. The exam pattern is feared by some students because the choices look confusing, tricky and risky, especially when exam preparation is not 100%. Here we would discuss few ways to improve scores to solve/crack the multiple choice questions (MCQ) based exam.

Having myself passed three of the 20 hottest certification exams (Sun Java, Value Engg, PMP) based on MCQ format, I have concluded that MCQ tests are like Driving License Test. These driving tests are not about whether you can start engine, put your foot on gas pedal and go. On the other hand, they are about general understanding of vehicle itself (i.e. exam pattern), navigation skills (when to speed up, when to slow down, have control at all times, do defensive driving), know all traffic symbols & rules- high speed lane is only meant to overtake (i.e. hurry up with questions only when essential), give way to vehicles when needed to be safe (skip tough questions to save time), look out on road for potholes/obstacles/wetness and slow down (i.e. watch out for tricky questions and don’t fall in traps/distracter), follow drive-test examiner’s instruction completely (follow the question’s instructions as to what is expected from us) and so on. Following are the general tips on how to crack multiple choice question (MCQ) exam:
