Eligibility for Admission to the MBBS Course in CMC-Vellore (Code-001):

Candidates should have completed the age of 17 years at the time of admission or should complete the said age on or before 31st December of the said year.
A candidate for admission to MBBS course "must have 60% marks at +2 level in each of Physics, Chemistry and Biology and have an aggregate of 140 out of 200 in these subjects, both at qualifying and competitive examinations and should have passed in English".

( 60% in each and 130/200 aggregate for BC; 55% in each and 120/200 aggregate for MBC; and 40% in each and 80/200 aggregate for SC/ST candidates). (BC, MBC, SC/ST as defined by the TN Govt; all rules subject to change as per State & University guidelines)

Example: If a candidate has 72% in Biology, 66% in Chemistry and 70% in Physics, then the aggregate works out to: {72 + (66 +70)/2} or {72 + 68} out of 200, i.e. 140/200 and is eligible. However, a candidate with 68 in Biology, 72 in Chemistry and 70 in Physics will have only {68+ (72+70)/2} on 200 or {68+71} on 200 i.e. 139/200 and is not eligible.

Pattern of CMC-UG Test:

A written test consisting of multiple choice questions is conducted in English. Each question will have five possible answers as A, B, C, D, E. There will be only one correct answer to each question. Select the one best answer to each question. You may use a black ball point pen or HB pencil. Using a pencil is to your advantage. Credit is given for questions not attempted (those left blank). The credit given is equal to 1/5 (0.2) of the mark for that question.

For the degree courses (MBBS, BSc (N) & AHS) there are 60 questions each in Physics, Chemistry and Biology (120 minutes total) and 120 questions in General Ability with emphasis on Speed and Accuracy and a few questions on issues of current topical interest (70 minutes). The General Ability paper will be in two sections. Section I will have 60 questions to be answered in 50 minutes and Section II will have 60 questions to be answered in 20 minutes. The entire exam will be 3 hours 15 minutes long. The question is of the 'objective' or multiple choice answer type. There is NO negative marking for wrong answer.

Performance in this examination will be the basis for being called for the interviews, practical tests and final selections. At the time of the interviews for MBBS and B Sc Nursing courses, Christian students who have applied under the sponsored category will be given a test on Bible Knowledge (50 multiple choice questions). The General Paper (Non Science) for Group B will consist of multiple choice questions of a general nature, including very basic science, general knowledge, current awareness and general ability.
