AIIMS Results 2019

AIIMS MBBS 2019 Exam results has been announced on 12th June 2019 by AIIMS, New Delhi. Candidates can view the results online on the official website of AIIMS exam. The Ranking scheme of AIIMS exam include Percentiles, Percentages and Raw score. A list is prepared which includes the list of all the eligible candidates who have scored minimum qualifying marks (cutoff percentile)The eligible candidates will be able to download their Rank card in the form of PDF from the AIIMS offical website. The cutoff percentile for AIIMS (backlink AIIMS Cutoff) of the qualified candidates is also released which can be viewed in the PDF.

The minimum qualifying marks is decided by AIIMS, New Delhi and it varies depending on the category of the student. AIIMS MBBS Exam Pattern determines the marking scheme for AIIMS and the scores obtained will be treated as Raw score, this score will be used to determine Percentage score and percentile [for the purpose of Eligibility using Cut-Offs] and Normalization [for the purpose of determining Merit / Ranking]. AIIMS MBBS Result will be calculated on the basis of Normalization.

To view AIIMS percentile scores, candidates will have to login using their credentials and check their percentile scores on AIIMS website.

Read below for steps to download results, method of resolving ties and Normalization procedure.

Qualifying Marks:

  1. General category - 50%
  2. Other Backward Classes(OBC_NCL) Category - 45%
  3. Scheduled Caste (SC)/Scheduled Tribe (ST) Category - 40%
  4. PWBD – Cutoffs of the respective category

Since the examination will be held in two days in two shift per day, a Normalization Procedure will be used;the Percentile score corresponding to the above cut-offs will be used to determine eligibility. In the event of the percentiles for the four shifts in two days being dissimilar / unequal, the lower of the four will be the eligibility cut-off for that category for all candidates (i.e. all shifts).

Normalization Procedure

Since there would be two shifts per day, this year, a Normalization Procedure is being adopted as decided by experts based on analysis of past MBBS Entrance Examinations conducted by AIIMS, New Delhi. This will be utilized to decide on the inter-se merit / ranking [used during Online Seat Allocation / Counseling for allotment of seats] between those who appeared for the examination. The normalization procedure that will be adopted is based on Percentiles.

Percentile Scores

Percentile scores are scores based on the relative performance of all those who appear for the examination. Basically the marks obtained are transformed into a scale ranging from 100 to 0 for each group (shift) of examinees.

What does Percentile score indicate?

The Percentile Score indicates the percentage of candidates that have scored Equal To Or Below (same or lower raw scores) that particular Percentile in that examination. Therefore the topper (highest score) of each group (shift) will get the same Percentile of 100 which is desirable. The marks obtained in between the highest and lowest scores are also converted to appropriate Percentiles. The Percentile score is the Normalized Score for this examination.


The Percentile Scores will be calculated to 7 decimal places to avoid bunching effect and therefore reduce ties.

Resolving Ties/Tie-Breaking method

The overall merit / ranking shall be based on the Percentile scores of the Total Raw Scores. The method adopted for breaking ties (similar Percentiles) shall be:

  1. Biology: Higher Percentile scores in Biology will result in higher ranking
  2. Chemistry:If Biology Percentiles do not break the tie, higher Percentile scores in Chemistry will result in higher ranking
  3. Physics:If Biology and Chemistry Percentiles do not break the tie, higher Percentile scores in Physics will result in higher ranking
  4. Age:If Biology, Chemistry, Physics Percentiles do not break the tie, the candidate elder by age will be ranked higher

Step-by-step procedure for Normalization and Ranking/Merit

  1. Distribution of Examinees in two shift per day

    Applicants would be grouped into four groups randomly such that these groups are approximately equal in number. These four groups would be First, Second shifts on Day 1 and Day 2 . In the event of lesser number of shifts, the candidates will be divided accordingly. This will ensure that there is no bias in the distribution of candidates. Further, with a large population of examinees spread over the entire country such possibility of a bias becomes remote.

  2. Preparation of Results for each Shift

    As mentioned above, the examination results would be prepared in the form of – Raw scores, Percentages and Percentiles (up to 7 decimal places) separately for four subjects (Biology, Physics, Chemistry and General Knowledge) and the Total. P.S: The Percentile of the Total shall not be an aggregate or average of the Percentile of individual subjects. The following 5 Percentiles would be calculated for each student. Let T, S1, S2, S3, S4 denote the raw marks obtained in Total, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and General Knowledge:

  3. Preparation of Overall Rank / Merit List

    The Percentile scores for the Total Marks for both shifts as mentioned above would be merged and arranged so as to derive an overall Merit List / Ranking. Please Note that the percentile score is not the same as percentage of marks obtained.

  4. Resolving Ties

    In case of a tie (identical Total Percentile) the order of deciding higher rank / merit would be: Percentile in Biology, Percentile in Chemistry, Percentile in Physics, Percentile in General Knowledge, elder by age.

Example of a hypothetical scenario in the preparation of Overall Ranking / Merit

  1. Assuming there are 100000 candidates in each shift the Hypothetical Ranking would be:

    Percentile Shift 1 day 1

    The Percentiles in Shift 1 on Day 1 is calculated separately for the Total marks and the four subjects. The Percentile for the Total is not the aggregate nor the average of the Percentiles of each subject.

  2. A similar Table has been prepared for Shift 2 on day 1 and two shifts on Day 2

    Percentile Shift 2 day 1

    Percentile Shift 1&2 day 2

  3. The next step would be to merge the results of all four shifts using the using the Percentiles of Total for ranking.

  4. Please note that there are some candidates with same Percentile Scores (Ties). In the next step the ties would be resolved with the sequential application of Percentile Scores of

    • Biology
    • Chemistry
    • Physics
    • Date of birth(age)

    Each of the above would be taken into consideration in the above sequence till the tie is resolved
    Note: Percentile of General Knowledge and Aptitude are not taken into consideration for resolving ties.
    The Final Ranking /Merit would be prepared after using resolving ties:

  5. The Final Ranking / Merit:

    Final Rank List -2

  6. It is to be noted that for the purpose of Online Seat Allocation/Counselling and subsequent admission to any of the AIIMS, the candidate is required to obtain the minimum qualifying marks (cutoff) as mentioned above.
