NEET Vs AIIMS Entrance Exam: A Head-To-Head Comparison !

This blog from SayTooLoud is a different take on top entrance exams. Today, we will be comparing two premium entrance exams from the medical field. We are talking about NEET Vs AIIMS Entrance Exam.


1. Schedule and Pattern:


The AIIMS CBT exam is held some place around the duration of May and June, yet they are held in two shifts – Morning slot from 9 am to 12:30 pm and afternoon slot from 3 pm to 6:30 pm (Exam Time: 3 1/2 hours).

The AIIMS question paper will consist of 200 objective questions, which will incorporate both MCQs and reason-assertion kind of questions.

Amongst the 200 qusetions asked in the AIIMS exam:

  • 60 questions belong to Chemistry

  • 60 questions belong to Physics

  • 60 questions belong to Biology (Botany and Zoology) and

  • 20 GK questions

Students are not permitted to bring pen or pencil inside the exam hall. AIIMS centers will give it to students. Rough work must be done on the rear side of the admit card.

Every question has 1 mark. There is negative marking. 1/3 marks will be reduced from the aggregate score of a student for each wrong answer.


NEET exam is typically conducted in the month of May. The exam time is of 3 hours

It comprises of a solitary paper with 180 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) of objective type. Each question has four choices of which just a single one is the right answer.

The general pattern of the exam is:

  • 45 questions related to Physics

  • 45 questions related to Chemistry and

  • 90 questions of Biology (Botany and Zoology)

The students need to mark the appropriate responses on a machine-gradable sheet utilizing a ball-point pen. Students are asked to do the rough work on the test booklet itself. There ought to be no rough work on the answer sheet.

Each question has 4 marks. Negative marking is present : For every wrong answer or for questions in which more than one answer has been chosen, 1 mark will be subtracted from the aggregate score of the student.

4. Which one is easier to crack?

How about we take a look at the success rate for each of these exams. Success rate is the % of candidates who passed the exam (contrasted with the number of students who appeared).


Just around 0.35 % of the students who took AIIMS last year, could clear it. Since the seats are extremely limited, this exam is significantly more competitive than the NEET. You must be in the top 0.35% to get admission!


Around 56% of the students who took to NEET last year, could clear it.

Verdict: It can be therefore stated that AIIMS is more competitive.

That was NEET Vs AIIMS for you, from SayTooLoud.
