The All-India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) for 2014 would be held online from Nov 25 to Dec 6, an official of the National Board of Examination (NBE) said Thursday.

The sale of the pre-paid test fee vouchers began Thursday in 279 Axis Bank centres, while the registration and scheduling for the test can be done online from Oct 26.

"NBE will conduct the AIPGMEE online admission for 50 percent quota to all medical courses offered at several government medical colleges and institutions, except in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir (J&K)," Bipin Batra, executive director of NBE, said.

In the states of Andhra Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir, the states conduct their own state examinations.

The APIGMEE 2014 results will be utilised for admission to several medical courses under the state governments of Haryana, Punjab, Chhattisgarh, University of Delhi and also for institutes under the Armed Forces Medical Services.
