  • All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi has proposed to Initiate Online Registration of applicants well in advance. Registrations will be a two-stage process comprising of Basic Registration and Final Registration.
  • From past experience it has been found that a majority of rejections are due to Improper filling of details other than  educational  qualifications.  In  the  first  stage  applicants  desirous  of  appearing  in  the  AIIMS-MBBS  Entrance  Examination in future will be able to initially register  by filling basic details and uploading images almost six month in  advance  (Basic  Registration).  These  particulars  and  images  will  be  screened,  there  would  be  adequate  time  to  correct  errors  and  deficiencies.  The  candidates  will  be  informed  whether  their  registration  is  accepted,  and  their  details will be stored with an unique identification number, Thus, candidates will not be subjected to the pressures of last minute rush and the fear of rejection of applications without any time left to make amends. Basic Registration process is free of any charges and thus no payment shall be collected at this stage. Since applicants may not have completed their eligibility of examinations etc, certain details may not be collected at the time of Basic Registration.
  • At a specified time prior to the entrance examination for the year (AIIMS-MBBS-2019) the Basic Registration process  will  be  closed  and  no  further  applications  for  that  particulars  year  will  be  allowed.  The  Prospectus  with  Examination  city  will  be  uploaded  befre  start  of  Final  Registration.  The  applicants  who  have  completed  Basic  Registration  and  this  has  been  accepted can  thus  decide  to  either  appear  for  the  examination  of  this  year  or  subsequently. In case any applicant does not wish to appear this year, he/she need not proceed to fill Final Registration but his/her Basic Registration details will be stored and will be valid for the subsequent year, In case the applicant desires  to  take  the  examination  as  announced,  he/she  can  proceed  for  Final  Registration.  Please  note  that  rejected  Basic Registration applicants are not eligible to proceed for Final Registration. In Final Registration applicants can fill remaining details such as qualifiction details, choose the available city for examination and make the necsarayments. These applicants will be eligible to be issued Admit Cards for that examination subject to fulfilment of eligibility criteria as mentioned in the respctive Prospectus.
  • After completion of Final Registration and uploading of Admit Cards, the Basic Registration process will then resume and continue for subsequent year. Those who have already completed Basic Registration once  need not fill these details again whether they appear for AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination-2019 or not. However, every time the dates for Final Registration for subsequent Entrance Examinations are made, the Final Registration will have to be completed. Thus, while Basic Registration is enduring, Final Registration is examination year specific.
  • Thus, all prospective candidates will have the facility of ensuring their basic registration details are completed and accepted in all respects, well in advance. It would also ensure that only those applications that are complete in all  respects  and  accepted  at  the  Basic  Registration  stage  are  permitted  to  make  the  Final  Registration  including  payment.
