This is an extremely useful and timely article. This article would help innumerable students who are going to appear in AIIMS entrance examination for MBBS in 2017. Not only the students of the current year, the article would benefit the aspirants of the next year also. The author has briefly but succinctly covered important dates, eligibility conditions (especially the age-related conditions will be very helpful), procedure to apply online, examination fee for all categories and the admission process after the declaration of results,i.e., counselling. In this connection, it is extremely important to note that AIIMS conducts a separate examination for admission in MBBS, i.e., the successful candidates in NEET can't take admission in AIIMS on the basis of performance in NEET.

I find the article very helpful. However, if the last year's (2016) qualifying marks for different categories would be indicated, it would be more useful for setting a target.

I thank the author for this informative article.
