10 Questions About AIIMS PAAR That You Must Know

Powered by

All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi will initiate Online Registration of applicants for its MBBS 2019 Entrance Exam well in advance. Registrations will be a two-stage process comprising of Basic Registration and Final Registration.  This Prospective Applicants Advanced Registration (PAAR) facility is being initiated for AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination 2019 onwards and will be continued in future also.  Here are answers to a lot of questions regarding PAAR.

1. Why the two stage registration process?

From past experience it has been found that a majority of rejections are due to improper filling of details other than educational qualifications. WIth the two stage registration process AIIMS intends to minimize registration rejections due to clerical and unintended errors.

2. So, where can I get the form for these two registrations?

Well, both these registrations would be Online.  There would be NO paper forms for the two stage registration process.

3. How does it work?

The first stage registration process is called Basic Registration. 
Applicants desirous of appearing in the AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination will need to initially register by filling 
a) basic details and 
b) uploading images almost six month in advance
These particulars and images will be screened, there would be adequate time to correct errors and deficiencies. The candidates will be informed whether their registration is accepted, and their details will be stored with an unique identification number.
Thus, candidates will not be subjected to the pressures of last minute rush and the fear of rejection of applications without any time left to make amends. 
Since applicants may not have completed their eligibility of examinations etc, certain details may not be collected at the time of Basic Registration.

Basic Registration Window:
Starts on 30-Nov-2018
Ends on 03-Jan-2019
Once the Basic Registration process is closed no further applications for that particulars year will be allowed. 

4. What happens next?

On 07-Jan-2019, AIIMS will release the status of the Basic Registration, i.e., whether your Basic Registration is Accepted or Rejected.

5. What if my Basic Registration status shows 'Rejected'?  Can I make corrections?

Yes, indeed!
Correction of deficiencies in Basic Registration that are not accepted can be made between 08-Jan-2019 and 18-01-2019.
Once you do this online, the Final Status (Accepted & Rejected) of your Basic Registration will be displayed on 22-Jan-2019.

6. How much does Basic Registration cost?

Basic Registration process is free of any charges and thus no payment shall be collected at this stage. 

7. So, what else should I know about Basic Registration?

The Prospectus with Examination city will be uploaded after the Basic Registration and before start of Final Registration. 
Date of release of Prospectus: 29-Jan-2019

8. Tell me about the Final Registration process:

Most importantly, please note that rejected Basic Registration applicants are not eligible to proceed for Final Registration. 
Also, if you haven't decided to appear for AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination in 2019 and did not fill-in the Basic Registration form online, then you would NOT be able to appear for the exam if you choose to appear for the exam after the close of the Basic Registration window.
The applicants who have completed Basic Registration and this has been accepted can thus decide to either appear for the examination of this year (2019) or subsequently. 
In case any applicant does not wish to appear this year, he/she need not proceed to fill Final Registration but his/her Basic Registration details will be stored and will be valid for the subsequent year.
In case the applicant desires to take the examination as announced, he/she can proceed for Final Registration. 
In Final Registration applicants can fill remaining details such as 
a)qualification details
b)choose the available city for examination and 
c)make the necessary payments. 
These applicants will be eligible to be issued Admit Cards for that examination subject to fulfilment of eligibility criteria as mentioned in the respective Prospectus.

9. When will the Final Registration start?

Final Registration Window:
Starts on 21-Feb-2019
Ends on 12-Mar-2019

10. Can I use Final Registration for AIIMS-MBBS-2019 & AIIMS-MBBS-2020 entrance exams?

After completion of Final Registration and uploading of Admit Cards, the Basic Registration process will then resume and continue for subsequent year. Those who have already completed Basic Registration once need not fill these details again whether they appear for AIIMS-MBBS Entrance Examination-2019 or not. However, every time the dates for Final Registration for subsequent Entrance Examinations are made, the Final Registration will have to be completed. Thus, while Basic Registration is enduring, Final Registration is examination year specific.

A Career in Sports in India

Powered by

Think sports and we would today think of Virat Kohli, P V Sindhu, Sardar Singh, Neeraj Chopra and the linkes.  Sports, which essentially only meant cricket in India until a decade ago is now changing fast.  Tennis, badminiton, golf, boxing, hockey, javelin throw, kabaddi etc. have become professional sports.  Essentially, sports could become a source of livelihood in India, if one has the talent and determination.  

So, what does the domain of sports offer for an aspiring student today?  Let us examine a few options.

I. Becoming a professional sportsperson is an obvious option, students can look at becoming physical education trainers, fitness experts, and coaches.  Some options for pursuing a career in these lines are:

What is nanotechnology and why so much buzz about it

Nanotechnology is about dealing with materials and technology at microscopic levels. Nanotechnology is a new inter-disciplinary field and is gradually gaining focus. It does hold a lot of potential as it is expected to be able to come up with innovative solutions which will be useful in multiple domains/industries like :

- Environment management

- Medicine and healthcare

- Renewable energy resources

- New materials for space application, food packaging, sustainable building materials

- Auto and sporting goods

- Forensics

For example, a team from IIT Madras has used nanotechnology for arsenic decontamination of water. Another team from IIT Delhi has come up with a water based self cleaning technology for use in textile industry.

Being an inter-disciplinary field, it has the potential to impact practically every aspect of our life !

What is being done to promote this field

As stated earlier, it may be noted that this is a rather new area. Some leading institutes, like IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur, Cochin University of Science & Technology are getting into this by having established nanotechnology schools where PG and research programmes are being undertaken. Worth noting that these are PG courses and high level research programmes, not UG courses yet.

- Inter University Centre for Nanomaterials and Devices (IUCND) at Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT) is an inter-university research centre formed by the government of Kerala. The centre is established with a view to provide state of the art infrastructure to support research and development in the domain of nanotechnology and also provide a platform for collaborative research involving academia and industry. It is expected to promote research towards scalable technologies in the emerging areas of (a) Energy (b) Communication (c) Environment and (d) Medicine.

- IIT Kharagpur focuses on (a) Nanofabrication / Nanoelectronic & Photonic Devices / NEMS / Nanosensors; (b) Bulk nanostructured materials for structural applications, (c) Novel nanomaterials : Synthesis, self-assembly and applications; (d) Nanostructured coatings for energy conversion/storage and surface engineering, (d) Nano-biotechnology, (e) Computational nanostructures etc. The school has recently established two new facilities, viz. Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) of nanopowders for fabrication of compacts and electron Beam Lithography (EBL) System for fabricating Nanoelectronic devices. In addition, the existing facilities in different laboratories of the institute are currently being utilized by the faculty members for the research in the broad area of nanomaterials and devices. The school currently has nine enrolled Ph.D. students and offers an elective subject on "Introduction to Nano-Science and Technology".

- IIT Kanpur is undertaking projects in (a) Multiscale Scaffolds as Fabrication Platform for Screening, Analysis and Development of in vitro 3D platform for Tuberculosis (b) Development of MEMS Microcantilever Sensors for Detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) (c) Polymeric composite grafted with Cu-nanoparticle-dispersed carbon nanofibers: An efficient electrode of the electrochemical immunosensor for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (d) Ready to use Mycobacterial culture growth media nanofiber mats (e) Paper Based Microfluidic Biosensors for Early Detection of Oral Cancer from Salivary Biomarkers

Govt initiatives

Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has taken several major initiatives for the promotion of Nanoelectronics research and innovation in the country. Major Nanoelectronics Centres of international standards have been established at premier institutes in the country. The state-of-the-art nanofabrication facilities at these Centres have become very popular both in India and abroad. Also, the Indian Nanoelectronics Users Programme (INUP) initiated by MeitY is being implemented at Centre of Excellence in Nanoelectronics (CEN) at IISc and IIT Bombay and has provided a great opportunity for R&D community all over the country for accessing state of the art nanofabrication facilities for undertaking research and skill development in Nanoelectronics. About 400 researchers are being imparted hands-on training in Nanofabrication at these centres every year. The research activities have so far resulted in a large number of research publications and significant number of innovations for which patents have been filed.

So what course should one take up at UG level

As one can infer, to make a career in this field, one needs to take up a specialized PG level course. However, at UG level, courses like Ploymer Engg, Electronics Engg, Material Science, Biotechnology, Biomedical, Biosciences, Microbiology, Mechanical Engg, Environmental Science could be a good way to go.

JNU 2019 Entrance Exam Postponed

Powered by

Jawaharlal Nehru University issued a press release yesterday announcing the postponement of the JNU Entrance Exam (JNUEE 2019) for admissions to all its UG & PG programs for the session starting August 2019.  JNUEE 2019 was scheduled to be held from December 27th onwards.  For undergraduate studies, JNU offered  BA(H) in Foreign languages (Persian, Pushto, Arabic, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, French, German, Russian, Spanish).  

The exams will now be held in the month of May 2019.  The dates would be announced in due course.

The reasons offered by the University for the postponement from Dec'2018 to May'2019 are the following:
1. That students in general have difficulty in sitting for the entrance exam in the month of December.
2. Two important changes have been incorporated starting this year which necessitates this shift in schedule.  One, the entrance exam would be MCQ based and would be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA). And two, the entrance exam would be computer based test.  The university plans to double the mock-test centres to allow applicants, especially from remote areas, to familiarize with the online test environment.  These would take time to setup and hence the decision to move the exam schedule to May'2019.

Keep watching this space for latest news and updates regarding JNUEE 2019.
