JIPMER 2016 Syllabus

JIPMER Syllabus:

             JIPMER (Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research) is an important medical entrance examination in India. More than one lakh students take part in this exam every year to get admission to the MBBS course in JIPMER, Pondicherry.


Advantages of taking part in JIPMER:

  • JIPMER is the fourth top most medical institution of India next to AIIMS, CMC and AFMC.
