JIPMER MBBS Entrance Exam is based on the syllabus as prescribed by State Board Higher Secondary and CBSE for XI & XII Standards.

JIPMER 2017 is conducted only in English medium.



200 Questions in 150 minutes is a challenging task. So TIME MANAGEMENT is important.

Here is a suggestion:

Start with Biology section followed by Chemistry section. Complete both in 45 minutes.

You can go for English comprehension and Logical reasoning next. Try to complete in 20 minutes.

Physics is usually lengthy hence keep more time for it. Try to finish in 80 minutes.

Keep 5 minutes for revision.


There is no negative marking hence, no harm in looking for a fluke even if you don’t know the answer. So try and attempt all questions.

Be accurate with your answers. Attempt with full concentration. This will ensure a good attempt and save time as well. Even 1 mark can cost you your MBBS seat.


Though JIPMER is easier as compared to other all India competitive exams like NEET and AIIMS, competition is tremendous hence, cut-off is very high. Any medical aspirant preparing for all India exams like NEET 2017 and AIIMS 2017 needs no separate preparation for JIPMER 2017.

The JIPMER 2017 exam is based on State Board Higher Secondary and CBSE for XI & XII Standards. NCERT books definitely help in understanding the fundamentals and should be referred.

Remember in all these competitive exams what can help you lead ahead is your understanding of the subjects and your grip on fundamentals. So read, understand, learn and succeed.

We hope that these tips help you perform better at the exam. After the exam is over evaluate your tentative score by referring the answer key available online. It will help you understand your position and you can decide your next move accordingly. Evaluate all the possibilities and options that can be available to you.
