The biggest surprise of this year's AIIMS PG was the introduction on Video/GIF based questions. This marks the beginning of a newer, more clinical based approach of AIIMS exam. Will NBE follow suit?

We collected information from 3,000+ students who took AIIMS PG exam on 18th November 2018 to help you understand how the exam was for others.

We have consolidated data from all the responses and have tried to present an accurate picture of the exam standard.
