What is the approximate number of applicants each year?
No information is available. However, the number of applicants has increased substantially in recent years. This is evident from two factors:
1. AIPMT is conducted as a two-tier examination since 2010 in order to minimize the potential number of candidates for final examination.
2. Many tutorials that initially specialized in IIT coaching have started a separate wing for AIPMT in recent years. Resonance & Career point can be named specifically in this regard.
What is the total number of seats available in all institutions under PMT (till 2010 and now in 2011)?
Total number of seats for MBBS as per approval of Medical council of India is 35583. (http://www.mciindia.org/InformationDesk/MedicalCollegeHospitals/ListofCollegesTeachingMBBS.aspx).
