Even though women candidates giving the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) 2017 MBBS exam outnumbered men, the latter put in a better performance with 2,077 successfully clearing the exam as against 1,828 women. The results were declared on Thursday, June 15.

Out of the 3,64,242 eligible candidates, 2,84,737 candidates gave the exam, with ,150,793 women candidates outnumbering 1,33,933 men and 11 third-gender candidates, an AIIMS release said.

However, in the first round of counselling, the number of candidates called will be about four times the number of seats available in each category. More may be called for subsequent rounds of counselling depending upon the availability of seats, the release said.

A detailed schedule of counselling sessions will be published on www.aiimsexams.org, so make sure you keep track of what’s happening
