All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) is one of the top medical entrance examinations in the country. This prestigious national-level entrance examination, AIIMS, sits behind National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET). The medical entrance examinations have undergone a lot of changes in the recent past, such as the merging of all the state-level medical entrance examinations with NEET. However, AIIMS stands to be individual with its own test format and set of rules.
AIIMS is an online entrance examination conducted for an admission to the MBBS courses at AIIMS, New Delhi and eight other AIIMS (Patna, Bhopal, Jodhpur, Bhubaneswar, Rishikesh, Raipur, Guntur and Nagpur). Candidates who have passed/are appearing/have appeared for the 10+2 or its equivalent with sixty percent marks can take this examination.
In terms of reputation, AIIMS hospitals stand on top of the country. Lakhs of students aim for an admission to the institution though the total number of seats across the nine AIIMS is just 807. The AIIMS exam is all set to take place at various exam centres spread across the country on 26 and 27 May, 2018.

Preparation Tips For Physics In AIIMS
The syllabus of each subject for AIIMS will be similar to NEET, but the format of questions will be entirely different. The physics questions will focus only on the concepts. Aspirants have to apply the concepts to solve the problems. Never ignore the NCERT textbooks, which are best to help you understand the concepts. Apart from NCERT textbooks, refer to other books such Concept of Physics by H. C. Verma and Objective Physics for Medical Entrance Examinations by Pramod Agarwal.
The important topics: modern physics, electricity and magnetism, optics, oscillation and waves mechanics.
Preparation Tips For Chemistry In AIIMS
Chemistry is all about the combination of concepts with chemical equations and problems. None of us can specifically say which concepts are important in this subject after assessing the previous years' question papers. Try to make good use of the periodic table which is related to many topics in organic and inorganic chemistry. Keep the basic concepts of chemistry on your fingertips. Refer to Modern's ABC of Chemistry besides mastering the NCERT textbooks.
The important topics: chemical and ionic reactions, chemistry of representative elements, basic concepts of organic chemistry, organic compounds containing oxygen and hydrocarbons.
Preparation Tips For Biology In AIIMS
This is the most important subject in AIIMS which only science students can answer. After careful consideration of previous years' question papers, we understand that there are many complex questions. The best way to get out of this is to prepare flash cards for the concepts. One has to even be familiar with all the diagrams.
The important topics: general biology, human anatomy and physiology, plant anatomy, plant kingdom and plant reproduction.

The important topics: current affairs, world records, persons in news, books and authors, science events, science and technology, freedom movement, Indian geography and international events.
