Medical science has proved very a boon for the mankind. Through it, medical aspirants aim to become well-qualified doctors to cope with fatal diseases. AIPGMEE (All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination) is one of the toughest examinations in the country, passing which aspirants become postgraduate doctors in their respective specializations. Every year, it is conducted by National Board of Examinations (NBE) amidst tight safety and security. AIPGMEE 2018 is going to come up and candidates must be keenly interested to know about it in detail, including its important dates, eligibility criteria, exam pattern etc.
