NAGPUR: The much-awaited form submission for the All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT) 2012 has started and will continue till January 25, without late fees. This exam is being conducted due to the controversial National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET) being deferred by a year.
The exam conducting body, CBSE, then decided to immediately start preparations for the AIPMT on the same basis as it was held last year. This means that the syllabus, pattern and eligibility conditions for this year’s exam will remain the same as AIPMT-2012.
There is however a slight change in the application procedure with regards to the form. Candidates can only apply online by logging on to www.aipmt.nic.in and accessing the application form.

If they miss the application deadline, candidates can again submit forms from January 26-February 8 with a late fee of Rs 500. Another window of opportunity to submit the application with a late fee of Rs1000 will be from February 9-February 24.
