The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) entrance examination prospectus has brought some concerns to the UT aspirants, with Chandigarh for second year in a row not having a single centre. The examination will be held on May 29.
Mohali is the closest centre allotted for appearing for the exam. Few others in Punjab include Ludhiana, Ropar, Sangrur, Jalandhar, Amritsar, Bathinda, among other cities. The exam was made online from last year and even then Chandigarh didn’t have a single centre.
Neha, a resident of Sector 18, said , “It would have made things for city aspirants much simpler, if there was a centre in Chandigarh. Now we’ll have to figure where to go. Considering so many people apply for the AIIMS exam from UT, I wonder what made the authorities take this decision.”
A student of Class 12 of Delhi Public School said it was not clear as to whether the photograph had to be uploaded with name or date or without as the same had not been clarified in the prospectus. There is also discrepancy regarding the tiebreaker criteria in the prospectus and whether general knowledge marks would be considered or not for children.
